Oneby, twoby, threeby . . . TENBY!!
A brisk gallop through the remaining photos which have been held up as I was unwell with that Galloping Tummy . . . . Anyway, here some cheerful and gorgeous yellow Vetch which grows in profusion on the rocks and cliffs.
At the base of the island a very geometric slab of rock has fallen out sometime in the past, giving a little keyhole view.
View of the island from the Bandstand.
Alexanders in their full glory.
Above and below: boats were chugging round the bays. The one above was taking a couple across to Caldey Island (which I've always wanted to visit).
Pellitory of the Wall. I think . . .
Rock Pigeons in their proper cliff top environment.
As you can see, wild flowers have gotten a hold in every nook and cranny.
Tenby was very well-protected in the past - these cannon are surrounding the promontery.
Isn't this sublime? Just EXACTLY the right blue too. Holiday home I would assume.
The view from the top.
Wild flowers again - mostly Ivy-Leaved Toadflax which loves warm walls.
Tame Foxgloves in a tub up in the town.
There used to be carriage rides around the town and this old stable was where the horse came to have his lunch-break. They don't appear to be doing them any more.
A lovely view through the alleyway to the Tudor Merchant's House and the bookshop you can no longer get through the door to explore inside as the owner's OCDness about books has piled too many too far out across the floor!
Finally, if I had to do town living, this is what I would go for. I could even cope with a courtyard garden (I would have so much colour in here). Isn't it lovely?
