More about this scene

We are looking over the harbour from Marine Terrace. Several of the port's big fleet of topsail schooners can be seen. These 'western ocean yachts' were built here: they carried slate world-wide, and returned with mixed cargoes. The poet Shelley and his first wife Harriet lived for a while at Tan-yr-allt, near Porthmadog; it was here that a mysterious attempt on his life was said to have been made.
