Photos of Tenby and Pembrokeshire

 

Paulette

Taffy

I have lived in the South Wales Valleys since I was born, A friend of mine bought me a camera for my birthday a few years ago, a Canon Powershot and I haven’t let the dust settle on it yet.

I bought an old touring caravan a few years ago and sited it at a caravan park  just outside the Tenby area, only 5min walk across the field straight onto the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which leads me down to Lydstep beach which is perfect as I have a border collie dog called Taffy which drags me everywhere and has accompanied me on my travels. That,s when I started to explore the Tenby and Pembrokeshire coastal paths leading me to unknown beaches and beautiful, picturesque scenery, I get great pleasure in sharing my photos and I hope you enjoy them as I do value your opinion.

Also Queen Victoria said that she
would only use the Coal from

was because it gave intense
heat and yet produced little smoke.

Caldey Monastery.
The present monks of Caldey
are Cistercians, a stricter
contemplative offshoot
of the Benedictine Order.
A group of monks came from
Scourmont Abbey, Chimay, 
Belgium in 1929 establishing
what is known as a “daughter house”.
In acknowledgement of their
Celtic predecessors, they adopted
St Samson, an early abbot of
Caldey, as their patron saint and rededicated the monastery as the Abbey of Our Lady and St Samson. Their new foundation also received the strong Cistercian tradition which had existed in Wales before the Reformation.
