On Sunday, we drove West into the beautiful Aeron Valley. To Aberaeron, a harbour town much loved by the poet Dylan Thomas who lived there locally for a while.
Aberaeron was built on a level area between the mountains and the sea.
A land formed during the last ice-age 10,000 years ago.
And in 1148 a castle was built there. It was a 12th century medieval fort on the sea-shore, near the village.
But it has long since been claimed by the sea.
Few traces remain today apart from some mounds of earth, the remains of the enclosure bank, most of the site having been eroded.
Aberaeron was beautiful and it was old and ancient and I loved it.
Until we meet again…
