More about this scene

The ornamental cannons, mounted on far too new-looking carriages, add a romantic if not very realistic contribution to this scene. More practical are the Welsh coastal schooners, which are lying alongside the moles comprising the jetties of the harbour, possibly awaiting copper or lead cargoes mined locally. The main stem of the jetty continues to serve craft belonging to the Outward Bound Sea School. Tenby

Other Memories from Aberdyfi

My brothers and I would cycle from Borth to Ynyslas sand dunes from where we could see the village of Aber Dovey nestled on the other side of the estuary. We were told that on a clear day if you listened carefully you would hear church bells ringing beneath the waves. Due to the fast moving tidal flow around the estuary we were always careful not wander out too far onto the sand banks. The dunes were a peaceful haven for rabbits and wildlife.
