Holiday in Wales - Tenby and Freshwater East

June 4th

We had breakfast on a sunny and calm morning before preparing Morag for the journey to our next camp site. We drove to Tenby to look at the town which I had rad was an attractive coastal resort. We were very impressed with Tenby, with its beaches, its multicoloured houses and the castle hill.
Tenby Harbour and Castle  Hill
We had a visit to the lifeboat station and the top of Castle Hill. For lunch we got a Pastie and a Toastie from a Harbourside snack bar. Then we went for a pint in one of the town pubs.

We drove from Tenby to Freshwater East in the afternoon. Freshwater East is a fully services Caravan Club site. We chose a hardstanding pitch near the toilet block and the dog walk. After setting up we walked down to the beach where Button had a great time running on the sands. The beach is long, about 3/4 mile, back by dunes and closed in at each end by impressive Old Red Sandstone rocks.
We ate our evening meal of pre-prepared chili=li and rice under the awning - once I had figured out how to put it up!

  1. We certainly had a lovely time on the beach. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the beaches in Tenby, but Button had a great time on the beach here at Freshwater East. She became a puppy again for a while :-) Lyn
