Echoes Of Wonder.

Source

Yesterday we went to a small and quaint seaside town called Tenby in South wales and only around 30 miles from where we live. Tenby is so popular with visitors to Wales and also just like us with the Welsh themselves.

My first photos are from a quaint nook with a couple of beautiful craft shops called Pandora's Shop.

My song choice for today is Ceidwad Y Goleudy (Keeper Of the Lighthouse) by Bryn Vaughan.

I hope you enjoy our day as much as we did.

As we can read on the sign apparently here in The Coach and Horse being Tenby's oldest pub the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas got so drunk here that he left his manuscript for Under Milkwood on the bar.

Wondrous heritage

The life of sea farers true

Salt sprayed memories.

This beautiful and quaint church is called St Julian’s and was built in 1878 for the fishermen in Tenby. Inside it can seat about 75 and the sense of serenity fills each nook and cranny.

Hundreds of visitors worldwide have visited St Julian’s. In the Visitors book they hail from Australia, The USA, Canada and all over Europe as well of course from many all over the UK.

So many comments on the peace and serenity found in this true haven.

Weekly Sunday services are held at 4 pm all year round and I am determined to return one Sunday to attend one of these services.

Many weddings are also held here with a license only held since 2009.

Back in 2011 a Wedding Blessing was filmed here for the TV programme 'Don’t Tell The Bride’ and was broadcasted in October 2011.

I can't get over how beautiful Wales is. You have so much history and beautiful scenery available to you, Eddy. If I recall, didn't you write a hub showing the pastel painted houses that an artist duplicated on a wall somewhere? They look so familiar to me.

What a great tour today, Eddy. Thank you. We loved Tenby when we visited many years ago, too. Was that life-boat house in the first photo the one that we saw on television here in Australia? It was transformed into a home with some difficulty as the building materials could only be taken there by crane at low tide.

I never knew that Wales was such a beautiful place. The colors of the homes are lovely, the old church quite dreamy and the stained glass windows are very, very beautiful. To think, you have all of this plus a lovely, lovely beach. These are true riches.

Tenby is a very nice seaside town Eddy; very picturesque as your photos - especially those of the multicoloured houses and the harbour - amply demonstrate. I've been there once or twice but not for many years. If ever I am down that way again, I will have to bring my camera too!

I notice one other correspondent mentioned the lifeboat stations, but I wonder if everyone in other countries who saw the photos of the red roofed building on the ramp and the grey building on wooden stilts beyond, really appreciate their significance?

Good collection of photos Eddy - just one of many great and historic towns in a very attractive part of the country. Voted up. Alun.
