Ilkeston Cam On Holiday 2002 - South West Wales
Part 01 - Brecon, Saundersfoot and Tenby
The photos on this page were taken on Saturday 13th and
Sunday 14th July 2002
Our route to South West Wales took us through Brecon where we
paused to stretch our legs and have a brief look around. Narrow
streets lead to the town square, lined with Georgian buildings
where a statue of Wellington stands outside a hotel of the same
name and in front of the St Mary's Church.
A short walk from the square leads through an arched entrance
into Bethel Square, a shopping precinct where such well-known
names as W. H. Smith, Edinburgh Woollen Mill and Boots are prominent.
The Boots shop actually occupies a building that opened in 1852
as the Bethel Chapel.
We continued our journey to Saundersfoot and the picture above
and the two below were all taken in the evening sunshine at around
8pm. The first shows a harbour full of yachts and motor launches
and on the harbour wall just right of centre, two fishing vessels
were being relieved of their catches.
Both fishing boats (coloured yellow and blue) can be seen in
this shot as holidaymakers made the most of the warm weather
strolling along the quayside. Even after eight o'clock in the
evening it was still warm enough to be out in shirt sleeves -
something of a rare occurence this summer!
As we returned to our hotel we were treated to this view of the
coast across the harbour. Not only was the harbour full of boats
but spaces in the car park on the sea front opposite were also
at a premium.
The next day we visited Tenby. Although it turned into another
fine sunny day, we did have our doubts when mist started rolling
around the cliff tops at about 9.30am. It soon burned off however
and we made our way to Stackpole Quay.
