Another jaunt. Ferryside is a small place, just off the road from Carmarthen to Llanelli and down the road along the Tywi estuary. Originally there was a ferry crossing to Llansteffan on the other side. Apparently, it was the first village in the UK to switch from analogue to digital TV. In the sunshine and heat the place seemed to be snoozing sudden startled when the local train to Swansea (50 minutes away) passed through. We sat on the beach for a bit, read, sketched and Rosie got impossibly sandy.
Went to the recycling centre to get rid of all that wood that we did not need. Returned via Home Bargains and Charlies (“Welcome to Charlies: Home, Garden & The Great Outdoors”) to buy things that we did need, for Siân’s Grand Designs out the back.
Actually saw the blackbird who sings to us every evening, he was accompanied with a chorus line of chattering swifts.
