The Gallery: The World Around Us (Tenby)

image I wanted to share some pictures with you from my recent family holiday to Tenby in Wales.  On the way there we had to drive over the New Severn Bridge – I don’t know what it is about these structures but they never fail to amaze me, the work that has gone into them, the time it takes to build them.

 

We stayed at a resort called Lydstep Beach which is a static caravan park based around its own private bay.  Our caravan was right at the edge of the beach and this was the view we awoke to every morning.  Stunning isn’t it!

image A few miles down the road we found this gorgeous beach at Saundersfoot where we spent a lovely relaxing couple of hours whilst the children played in the sand.

And just because I loved the view so much, let’s see that gorgeous view from my caravan just a few more times!  These pictures were taken at about 8am.  The island which you can see opposite (on the right hand side) is called Caldey Island and is inhabited by Monks.  The Cistercian Monks of Caldey continue a tradition which began there in Celtic times.  More than a thousand years later they are still there living in peace and tranquility.  Boats visit the island regularly throughout the summer days so that you can visit and walk around the island.
