Jun 18, 2016 - live ammo and crazy horses!
I was out early this morning to catch some rugby at the local rugby clubhouse which is actually a pub in town centre. This is Wayne talking now just in case you thought maybe Donna was up EARLY to catch some rugby - NOT!!! Wales vs New Zealand was on a huge tv screen watched by me and a hundred of my new best buddies of all ages. It was fun to experience as an old gal behind me was yelling advice all game long and many others were "helping" the ref on every call. Of course the beer was flowing although a few of us wusses stuck to coffee as...Jump to full entry
Jun 16, 2016 - Our favourite so far.....
We hopped up for brecky at our B & B, which was served from 8:15am to 9am (a tad early don't you think?). Hit the streets with Donna snapping photo after photo as the buildings in Tenby and the seaside setting was absolutely beautiful. The fellow who led us to our hotel the night before was painting a condo just down from our hotel. As we walked by his co-worker asked if we were "the Canadians" and called James to let him know we were there. We thanked him again and had a nice chat with he and his partner before striking out to see the...Jump to full entry
Jun 15, 2016 - lost twice in one day!!!
14 June Tuesday was clean up day, laundry day and taking one last long wander through Prestatyn day. The Fearnley's were returning on Thursday so we wanted everything ready for their arrival back home. 15 June We met John & Sue and had a very nice visit before making our last walk through Prestatyn to board the train at 3pm. By 9:45pm we were in Tenby after a pleasant journey down the entire length of Wales. A small glitch when we discovered neither of us had written down the address of our Tenby hotel - big OOOOPPPS! You would think we...Jump to full entry
Jul 31, 2015 - Tenby
We thought we would have a quiet day and visit Tenby! It was a lovely sunny day. Tenby sits between two bays and was first mentioned in a 9th century bardic poem. The town was developed during the Normans in the 12th century along with the building of a castle and due to marauding Welsh a town wall. The town prospered between the 14th and 16th century as a major port for diverse range of foodstuffs and fine goods. Decline followed until the mid 19th century when the railway arrived and Tenby became a fashionable seaside resort. It was an...Jump to full entry

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND Here’s what the Lonely Planet – Great Britain chapter on Pembrokeshire has to say about Tenby: Pembrokeshire “The rugged Pembrokeshire coast is what you would imagine the world would look like if God was a geology teacher. There are knobbly hills of volcanic rock, long thin inlets scoured by glacial meltwater, and stratified limestone pushed up vertically and eroded into natural arches, blowholes and sea stacks. Stretches of towering red and grey cliff give way to perfect sandy beaches, only to resume around the headland...Jump to full entry
Jun 7, 2010 - Egypt part 2
Day 8 We had a carefree night with the felucca parked-up and toilet tent pitched close onshore. There was a certain excitement sleeping aboard, we could spot beautiful stars and the drums from the cruise ship provided some entertainment. That morning we took off for Luxor. The bus ride was a drag with jolting roads. Still the pool and showers at the hotel were discovered with much relief. The town of Luxor appears affluent and vibrant. Day 9 Today has been filled with a variety of transport- mini bus, boat, hot air balloon and donkey. What...Jump to full entry
May 18, 2010 - Terrific Tenby
The weekend gave me a unique opportunity to reunite with a high school friend, Irene. In many ways it seems like taking off where we left. The mission to pick up the rental car was stress-free and I was thrilled to drive a comfortable black Astra. At least I had enough room in the drivers seat- not so sure about the three lovely ladies in the back not to mention Shaun (Annie’s cousin) jammed in the front. So with NavMan at my side we found our way to the beautiful town of Tenby. It has a vibrant but relaxed feel about the town. The beaches...Jump to full entry
