Laugharne Love

Laugharne Castle
Next day was again warm sun and we took Rosie for a good walk along the base of the castle and then headed up the main street and out to St Martin’s church yard. There is a good walk through the lanes to a footpath that takes you on a wide loop alongside the Taf estuary and back through tall woods and down to the Boathouse where Dylan Thomas lived. 

Outside the Cross House Inn
A pint in The Cross House Inn and we were ready for a jaunt. We drove west along the coast to Amroth.  Amroth, the name is Welsh, and probably means ‘On (the brook called) Rhath’. You can see a constant flow of water gushing out across the stones at the eastern end of the beach.

Two riders raced their horses along the beach, silhouetted in the lowering sun.
We had a good walk along this broad beach.
The tea for two and coffee for one in the New Inn was a perfect ending.

Fellow diners at The Portreeve
That evening we enjoyed another culinary discovery, The Portreeve’s Tafarn, in Laugharne. The food was super, most of it local. There was a distractingly varied song choice on their music system, including Canned Heat.

It was splendid couple of days in a part of Wales that keeps revealing warm-hearted surprises and fascinating places.
