A Tasty Sampler.

3 11 2012

Left Top: Helena and Me at Little Haven, a small town only accessible by narrow roads.
Left Bottom: St. David’s Cathedral (you couldn’t take pictures inside).
Middle Top: The coastal roads were so narrow and wind-y but the speed limit reached 60 mph!
Right Top: Helena and I had an amazing lunch at a deserted, little place called “The Sampler”. My sandwich/toastie had Brie and chutney (I don’t know how to describe the taste) in it, which was SO delicious!
Right Bottom: My favorite scene of the day at Whitesands beach, where we put on wellies and went out in the sea. The sky was stunningly dramatic.

Helena took me out in the morning around North Pembrokeshire and we covered a lot of gorgeous coastline before the rain (and hail) set in during the afternoon. We got to a few shops and quite a few great photography points (much appreciated by me), and had a fantastic lunch and some fudge for desert. St. David’s Cathedral was interesting because it was one of the few cathedrals to not be built on top of a hill (so that incoming ships could not see it). Everything was wonderful, and we came back midafternoon for quiche and the movie October Baby.

On the wall of The Sampler was a bunch of old, framed cross-stitches. A verse on one of them started:


Why do we mourn departing friends/Or shake at deaths alarms/Tis but the voice that Jesus sends/To call them to his arms
