Ilkeston Cam On Holiday 2002 - South West Wales
Part 05 - Saundersfoot, Evening and Morning
The photos on this page were taken on Sunday 14th and Monday
It was our custom during our stay in Saundersfoot to walk from
the hotel after our evening meal to the harbour area of the village
and on Sunday we even made it onto the beach.
Walking along the northern arm of the harbour, we reached the
end just in time to see the day's catch being brought in. There
seemed an urgency about the harbour on this Sunday evening -
presumably it was to do with the state of the tide.
There was much activity among the smaller craft too as many of
the weekenders prepared to remove their boats from the water
and take them away until the following week.
We watched for a while as trailer-towing cars were reversed down
to the water's edge and small boats were winched out of the sea.
There was much to-ing and fro-ing in a small dinghy and we half
expected the "three men in a boat" to capsize but they
reached dry land safely.
Early the following morning we were again down in the (at this
time) sparsely populated village centre to buy a daily newspaper.
And that was before breakfast even!
Then it was back along the road towards Tenby to the hotel for
breakfast. Later in the day these streets would be full of fellow
holidaymakers but by then, we would be off exploring more of
Pembrokeshire. And where did we get to on Monday? I'll show you
in Part Six.
