Solva, Pembrokeshire

Earlier this month I was in Solva, Pembrokeshire.  It is very relaxing to sit by the harbour to watch the boats come and go.  There are such splendid walks along the Pembrokeshire coastal path.  I have attached some photographs taken in and around the Solva area.

Solva is a delighful place to spend a holiday by the coast.

Caldey Island

I have visited Caldey Island many times and I have been inside the Cistercian Monastery on a guided tour.  (I have expressed my views in my post of 2008.)  I took the boat to Caldey, which cost me £11.  The weather was fine, ideal for photography.  I have attached some photographs and I'm pleased with them. It was a most enjoyable experience, but I still think that the monastic way of life is unnatural, flawed and wasteful. It is such a large building for a very small monastic community.
