 You know  I like visiting here, there and everywhere and keeping busy, busy, busy!  Last week in the pouring rain we went to Carmarthen and  took ‘a trip through Carmarthen’s creepy past’ on  the Creepy Carmarthen Town Tour led by  Nick. We met outside the Guildhall and spent the next two hours enchanted by Nick’s stories about the creepy  goings on in the town’s history. To add to the interest there was a sprinkling of magic to keep all engaged and engrossed.  A  really enjoyable experience for all locals and visitors.


A day out in Llandysul was next on the list to visit the Powerhouse where an excellent art exhibition was taking place. Llandysul is a lovely town with  a small range of interesting shops and cafés . 2015 august 196-1 2015 august 193-1 2015 august 134-1 Standing outside the Powerhouse  was  Dylan Thomas’s Touring  Writing Shed! The Shed has been on a nationwide tour and this was the very last day it was being exhibited. It might  end its days in St Fagans …who knows!  The Shed was brilliant and it was ‘dressed’ inside to look just the same as the ‘real’ shed in Laugharne . 2015 august 137-1 2015 august 138-1 The exhibition in the Powerhouse was  most enjoyable to view with a range of paintings in different media , crafts, stained glass and metal work…..the Steampunk Hare really caught my eye!

Through the Power house window there was a stunning view of the river Tiefi   being enjoyed by  canoeists of all ages and abilities…great fun to watch and maybe another activity to add to my bucket list!!
