Reasons to love Wales #64: Mumbles

My late father-in-law Bill, a giant amongst men, likened looking out from Mumbles across the water to Swansea town, to looking out across the Bay of Naples.
An acute and precious observation.

Last evening a good friend from Mumbles, violinist Jonathan Evan-Jones, send me copies of two small watercolour studies he discovered amongst his mother Beti's papers.

I must have created them and sent these tiny pieces to his parents, Beti and Huw.
They were great friends to Sian and I for so many years.
Mumbles brings memories, it is a wonderful seaside town.
