Trip To Tenby | Part I


We whizzed along the country tracks, parked the car & (obviously) followed the smell of cake.
The trail lead us to a faultless factory line of five grannies, huddled in a fire station, making hundreds of Welsh cakes. Fresh from the griddle, they were tossed into a brown paper bag & dusted with sugar. 
It doesn't get more traditional than that! I got ten for £2 - warm, a little cake-y, a little scone-y, a little donut-y, these were absolutely delicious. 

We pattered down the colourful high street towards the (even more colourful) pastel infused beach front. 
After snaking through the shops & market stalls, we veered left down a dark alley past an old Tudor Merchant's House to the harbour. Where we took some polaroids, admired the lifeboat house & ate our Welsh cakes.

      We have been so lucky with the weather, I'm not sure if Wales is usually this sunny! You gotta try a Welsh cake!

  3. Isn't that the lifeboat house that got converted into a house on Grand Designes? I can see the glass balcony overlooking the ocean so I think I might be right! This looks like such a lovely, lovely place and those cakes look absolutely delicious! Great pictures, I really enjoyed them. xx
