and back

That was a lovely little break, mainly spent going around gardens (Colby Woodland Garden on Friday and the National Botanic on Sunday, not forgetting the Hywel Dda Gardens and Interpretive Centre) and towns (Narberth and Tenby) and eating curry in unlikely places with unusual implements.

The National Botanic Garden of Wales has really come on over the last few years, by the way.

Another minor point: Whitland is an great place – it’s like time stopped in the 1970’s, in a good way. Two butchers in the High Street, a bank with no ATM, and a pub with middle-aged gents watching the racing while people pop in and out for a chat. I think they preserved it back then and only get it out of storage every once in a while, like Brigadoon. The place even smelled slightly of mothballs.
