Tenby Beach, low tide

Tenby Beach, low tide,
walking through clear reflections
of stone cliff houses

After crossing the channel from Rosslare in Wexford County, Ireland, we stop at Tenby in Pembrokshire County, Wales. A sign in Welsh says the name of the town is Dinbych-y-Pysgod, which means little fortress of the fish. This was once a seaside fort overlooking a little harbor on the southwest coast of Wales. A medieval town grew up around Tenby Castle, which is now in ruins, as is a small castle on St. Catherine's Island. Several miles of clean, sandy beaches lie on either side of a promontory, a popular holiday spot. We join the crowds strolling along the north beach, enjoying the feel of water and soft sand on bare feet.
