Tenby in Pembrokeshire is perhaps my favourite seaside holiday spot in the UK. It’s one of those places where you can choose central accommodation, park the car and walk to the beautiful beaches and some great restaurants. on this particular trip we took a boat across to Caldey Island. On the way we were presented with this picture. Good Memories.
Tenby colours never cease to amaze me. Walk down many of the streets in the “old” (or tourist oriented!) Tenby and the visitor will see the many shades of pink, blues and yellows which have been used to paint the buildings. It’s a pretty place to visit.
A sunrise walk on Tenby North Beach at low tide makes access to the harbour easy. The photo at the top of this page was taken soon after sunrise with the tide not fully out. The bright colours of the boats look great against the old stone buildings of the harbour and the coloured buildings above.
The colours of Tenby on the harbour are a classic photo on many a calendar. Here’s one I captured on my last visit, again taken soon after sunrise, but from a higher viewpoint.
If you haven’t read my previous posts, Tenby is a popular summer holiday destination in Pembrokeshire in Wales, UK.
We found a sunset Tenby street. Sometimes a holiday trip and photography collide. There we were walking down the street looking for a bite of dinner. And there was the sunset. The colours of the sunset complimented the street so well, this was a picture that just had to happen.
For the photography fans, yes it did take a bit of post-processing, but I like the shot anyway.
me to have a drink on the beach before heading for a fish and chips dinner. Tenby is on the Pembrokeshire coast of Wales.
Tenby is an interesting place. With early records traced to sometime in the 9th century, it was a walled town with a castle in the 13th century. The Victorians developed Tenby into a holiday resort. Boasting a couple of pretty good beaches it proved to be a great spot to enjoy some summer sunshine.
Despite a booking mix-up (our fault) we were made very welcome at the Clement Dale Guest House by Trevor and Ros Wood. Breakfasts – traditional English bacon and eggs were great! The guest house is well situated with South Beach a couple of blocks in one direction and the walled town a couple of blocks in the other. In fact the whole area was perfect for an early morning walk with the camera every morning.
Apart from some almost perfect summer weather, I will remember sitting in the dark in sight and sound of the sea, drinking wine and eating fish and chips from long established local chippy Fecci and Sons.
Thinking of a holiday, or just a few days getaway? Give Tenby a thought. It is a few hours drive away, but easily accessible by train from most of the UK.
