Ilkeston Cam On Holiday 2002 - South West Wales
Part 06 - Lower Fishguard

The photos on this page were taken on Monday 15th July

Believe it or not but this narrow thoroughfare is the main road (A487) through Lower Fishguard to Newport and Cardigan. I hardly noticed the building on the right, "The Ship Inn" when we first reached the town as I was more intent on finding somewhere to park.

But before leaving Lower Fishguard we had ventured into the hostelry to sample a cup of their morning coffee. (Honest) The decor inside featured many black and white photographs of the town from many years ago and had a nautical theme - notice the netting and shells that adorned the ceiling.

Prior to our coffee break I had spent an enjoyable hour on the quay side. Whether it was the gorgeous weather, the setting, the friendly natives or a combination of all three I think I found this little corner of Pembrokeshire the most captivating of all the places we visited. For ten minutes or so I chatted to one of the locals as he waited to launch his boat. He too, had been charmed by the place when he had first visited. He had decided to put down some roots and buy a cottage and forty years later he still lives there.

I left the car park and walked the length of the quay side. The first point of interest was this cannon and the plaque next to it that recalled the filming of Dylan Thomas' "Under Milkwood" here in 1971. The film starred Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

The views and photo opportunities seemed endless and across the still waters of the harbour the boats bobbed ever so slightly in the morning sunshine.

I wandered on in front of this row of cottages and became immersed in the delightful setting.
