I am indulging in the past again, I’m taking you back to 2007 when I had Megan my oldest daughter living with us in the UK, she was 17 which can be a tricky age for mums and daughters to get along and we had our moments as most other mums will admit but this holiday was actually one of my favourites.
Favourite because Megan and I got along really well with no arguing but also because of the enchanting village of Tenby in South Wales.
We had a four night break on a park in the area which was walking distance to the beach which of course was our first adventure once the beds had been made and the luggage put in it’s place.
The beach is vast and a great place to walk with the village of Tenby on the cliff above.
You climb up the stairs in the cliff and reach the start of the village above.
We walked through and were delighted with the old town, it’s incredibly quaint and picturesque.
We stopped off for refreshments at the Lifeboat Tavern and then ventured on down to the colourful harbour.
The harbour is beautiful and is built between the old medieval old town and Castle Hill. It is also home to the lifeboat stations, both old and new. There’s a small sandy beach and you can hire sail boats to have some fun in.
During our stay in Tenby we drove along the beautiful coast of Pembrokeshire and found loads of interesting places.
The photo at the top is of Megan and I in front of Pembroke Castle the birthplace of Henry VIII. Sadly that time we didn’t enter so I would really love to return one day and go in to have a look. Pembroke is a gorgeous town to walk around too so if you do go allow plenty of time to visit.
There are plenty of beaches to visit and some with great long stretches of sand to walk before reaching the water’s edge. Paul took his kayak with him and he and Megan bought some wetsuits and spent ages out in the sea whilst I took the photos.
One day we set off and went as far as St David’s Cathedral, just incase there is someone who doesn’t know, St David is the patron saint of Wales and there has been a place of worship on this spot since the 6th century. It is a fascinating site with the ruins to one side and the rebuilt cathedral to the other.
But it was the coast that brought out the laughter as we walked along the cliff edge, or lay on it pretending to fall or be pushed as it may be.
There are lots of walks and places to climb for the excellent views out to sea.
And as I said at the beginning this was one of my favourite holidays with Megan before she moved back to Italy. I have loved reliving it and I hope you did too.
It’s all about travel, you can link up with an old post, or write one about a place you have been but haven’t written yet or link up with a recent travel post. I look forward to reading and sharing your post.
