Day Twenty-eight

The theme for Becky’s  April Squares challenge is ‘top’ 

    1. On Top of the World – summit, crown, peak or uppermost part of something
    2. Under the Big Top – topping or covering (or if you’re really lucky circus)
    3. Room at the Top – first or highest in position
    4. Cherry on Top – something made even more wonderful by becoming square
    5. Top and Tail – or maybe you’d prefer to play around with word combinations such as top dog, top stitch, top full, top line, top fruit, top hat, top secret, top knot, top drawer and top dollar!
Top Row

This wonderful row of candy-coloured four storey Victorian townhouses (mainly holiday apartments, B&Bs or hotels) is situated at the beginning of the Esplanade above the rocky cliff and stairs that lead down to South Beach in Tenby, South Wales. What a commanding view they have of the monastic Island of Caldey and St Catherine’s Castle.

But be warned, this town gets extremely busy in the school holidays and parking is almost impossible to find. It’s the Welsh equivalent of St Ives, Cornwall and also boasts three fine beaches. Take a look for yourself by clicking the link above.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I have been up and down those steps in Tenby a few times. Steeper than they look here. My ex-wife had a bad time getting up them one hot afternoon, and stood halfway up for over 30 minutes!
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I didn’t try going up them! But Tenby is rather nice and we were tempted to make it our home until we realised how shockingly bad the parking is.

      1. We were staying in Fishguard, and went into Tenby a couple of times that week. I remember parking the car not far from those steps, which is why I went up and down them. But my wife said no to a third visit after almost expiring on the way up. 🙂
