Wednesday June 7 - Pembroke Dock, Pembroke and Tenby

We caught the one coach train to Pembroke Dock first thing.  Not a great deal to see although the old station is now used by a restaurant/bar.  We took a look along the long closed branch which went down to the dockyard, looked at Milford Haven across the sound and had a cup of coffee. I remember visiting the dockyard to inform them that the railway was cancelling their siding agreement.
Pembroke Dock is literally the end of the line
Coming back to Pembroke we had two hours to walk around to the castle and then follow a pleasant footpath around a large pond with many water birds, swans, ducks, herons etc. before getting a drink at a bar close to the station,

We caught a two coach train back to Tenby and explored the eastern beach and the Lifeboat station before the rain came down.  The tide was out but came in very quickly to obscure a sand image which could be viewed from the upper road.

We had a coffee in the Tenby market.  There was a sign "I kiss better than I cook".  One of the ladies said "I cook pretty well, but don't ask for samples".
The rain came in again early afternoon.  About the only person who was not affected was a swimmer who was training lengths in the bay.
