Looking out my window at the grey sky it's hard to believe that until a couple of weeks ago we were basking in the midst of an elusive 'Great British Summer'. Since I first arrived here from sunny New Zealand, I thought a this thing was just a myth or a strap-line that some advertising clever clogs had made up in the 50s to lure tourists to the grey island called Britain. Now I get it, it's actually a thing! I wanted to share some photos of sunny New Quay in Wales from a trip back in the very beginning of summer, when everyone thought it was still going to rain for months. No, I'm not confused. This is New Quay in Wales, not Newquay in Cornwall. Different places. We even saw dolphins (dolphins! who knew!) playing in the sea.
The fishing town on Cardigan Bay, West Wales, is filled with picturesque cottages, many a fish'n'chip joints and ice-cream counters. The town is believed to be the 'cliff-perched town at the far end of Wales' as immortalised by Dylan Thomas in 'Under Milk Wood'.
