We enjoyed the walk through Laugharne, passing The Boathouse that Dylan Thomas made his home while writing some of his memorable poems.
Parts of the walk up to St Clears was very very mucky – so mucky that Lucy’s new boots were well christened and at one stage, a boot was sucked off her foot, and walking pole got stuck.
Lucy seeking to rescue stick and boots with her well manicured pink nails will stay with me a while. We shared a giggle as she hobbled out of the mud, boot in one hand, and one sock and one boot on her feet.
More mud was to followed and we gratefully staggered into the Santa Clara pub in St Clears, where the local builders, enjoying a swift pint before heading home had a great laugh at our expense.
Light refreshments later we jumped on the No 222 bus to Pendine, picked up cars and set off for our cottage in Laugharne, aptly called Milk Wood Cottage.
