A bit breezy and mostly cloudy today, but still dry so no complaints from us. We drove to Llansteffan, which is only across the river from Ferryside but is actually about 15 miles further in the car, as you have to drive up to Carmarthen to cross the river. The free car park is just behind the beach, the main part of which has a seasonal dog ban, but is a pretty beach with plenty of soft dry sand, as well as a huge area of wet sand at low tide.
After visiting the beach we walked up the hill to have a look at the castle, well it would be rude not to!
I guess I’m not very perceptive, but I never get the feeling of what the castle would have been like in the day, more a feeling of tranquility and as I’ve said before, I love the structure and shape of these ruins and how they interact with their surroundings.
From the castle we walked down the other side to Scott’s Bay, past a quirky garden sculpture on the way.
What a little gem of a beach and deserted!
We wandered around Wharley Point from where the delights of Laugharne Sands could be seen in the distance. Mind you visiting Laugharne Sands has to be done after 4 as the military use it during the day!
These rocks look quite surreal in their colouring don’t you think?
After a good play on our deserted beach we wandered back round to Llansteffan by the beach.
Two thoughts of the day:
The site is filling up again for the weekend, hopefully not too many little people!
Hey the local supermarket is selling White Grenache, my favourite wine for £3.99 – well!!!
