The Glorious Teifi River

It's been a lovely afternoon in the growing warmth of the west Wales sunshine.

I've been down in the so-called 'Somerfield' Car Park (it's now the Co-op) down alongside the Teifi River, fly-postering cars with flyers to remind everyone that the Car Park will be closed this coming Friday evening and Saturday for the annual Cardigan River & Food Festival.

As well as leaving the photographed flyers under the windscreen wipers of parked vehicles, I also put up posters to remind car park users of the same.

It was a glorious location to spend a few hours this afternoon with the view down the river and towards the estuary with the leisure boats bobbling along on the river and the village of St Dogmaels in the background. It's a picture of serenity that lightens the heart.

It reminds me just how lucky I am to live here on the western coast. As much as I enjoy my visits to the larger cities of Cardiff and London for example, there's nothing quite like coming home to the west.


  1. You are right, Mark.

    I was in Caerphilly for the week-end at the Big Cheese and also visited Cardiff Bay. The last time was about 15 years ago when we went to Harry Ramsden's with my ex-mother in law, before she left Cardiff. It was fantastic.

    But you cant beat West Wales...

    PS - I am sure the boats were bobbing about on the water? LOL

  2. Is that the car park that you get to from the road that comes out opposite the castle? I've parked in there a few times. Very nice.
