30th June 

Our first piece of entertaining today. Friends Mark and Karen from Lancashire are staying close by near Llansteffan, so we meet up in Laugharne. We proudly give them the 10 Cent Laugharne Tour:


Starting out from the Gist along the foot of the castle and up to Dylan’s Writing Shed where we peer through the window to see his jacket on the chair, bottles clearly in view and close to hand a bucket, no prize for guessing its use. Onwards up into Long Lane and down to Dylan and Caitlin shared grave. Caitlin was herself a writer. After his death, she wrote the book Leftover Life to Kill, an account of her self-exile to Italy. *. Back up Clifton Street where we served coffee and tea at The Show Room.


Sun high and it was very hot. Under a large umbrella at a table in the Fountain Inn we enjoyed great baguettes and for the lads good Felinfoel IPA.

After lunch across to Amroth. A half mile long, flat, sandy beach. There's a huge expanse of sand at low tide and rockpools at the western end of the beach. Ice creams were essential.


Forward planning ensured we had an excellent beef curry from Poon’s. It was her dish of the day, and certainly it was ours!

Oh go on then...
