A Short Break in Tenby

This is the third short break Mum and I've been on together since Dad died, and as before, I thought I'd share some snaps with you. We visited this area of southwest Wales when I was a child and we both wanted to return. It's as delightful as ever: a quaint harbour town, beautiful sandy beaches, pastel buildings and medieval town walls. It looks stunning whatever the light or time of day. I took rather a lot of photos both on my DSLR and phone - yes, I've returned to Instagram too :)
We didn't use the car during our stay which made it very restful. We explored the town which, I'm pleased to say, didn't have too many of the big high street names; visited St.Catherine's Fort (which has recently been reopened and was once a zoo as well as a fort); and went on a boat trip to Caldey Island which is home to a small order of Cistercian monks (a stricter offshoot of the Benedictine order). Caldey Island is just twenty minutes from Tenby but a very different world: quiet, unspoilt and with a contemplative feel. Walking along the coast path, attending a chanted service in the Abbey Church and even queueing for refreshments were carried out calmly and unhurriedly. The island breathed simplicity, creating a presence of peace - a feeling I hope I can hold onto in the future.
Mum was so happy to have a break and I enjoyed spending precious time with her. Tenby is a lot busier in the school holidays, I'm sure. However, it was beginning to get more crowded and hectic as the weekend and Ironman Wales beckoned. A spectacular venue but not for the faint-hearted. It'd be fun to watch, though!

Thank you all for reading. I'll be back on Monday with some minimalist musings. Have a great weekend xo

  3. Claire,
    You've captured your visit with your Mum perfectly. Mine is moving down to St Ives in October, and I'm looking forward to exploring more of Cornwall with her.

  5. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: emutemple@gmail.com or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

  6. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email emutemple@gmail.com or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542
