|The view of Tenby from my parking spot|
One of my favorite spots in
Tenby is a lovely old seaside town with remnants of its Medieval walls, sandy beaches (I had been told in
that Tenby had the best beaches),
colorful buildings and wonderful shopping, along with some gorgeous coastal
views. As always, I wished I had more time to spend there. Cardiff

I couldn’t believe my good fortune that morning when I found a parking spot along the water. I pulled in, made sure there were no No Parking signs, and not finding any, went on my merry way to explore.

I spent the morning on
a short boat ride from Tenby, wishing I had more time there too. I detoured off
the path, wandering through the ruins of the old priory, visited the chocolate
shop where the aroma alone was to die for, and walked along the bluffs around
the lighthouse. I was charmed by the sign on the old church door of St. David’s
regarding swallows nesting inside and I saw seals that morning, sunning themselves on the rocks down below me as I walked along the grassy hills, their loud cries demanding
attention. The views were stunning and I did not want to leave. Caldey Island

The sun was warm that afternoon as I strolled through Tenby, in and out of shops, finding souvenirs for my family back home.
I had thought myself fortunate indeed that morning when I found my parking spot but what do you think I found on my windshield when I returned? A parking ticket! I had been so dazzled by the view and my good fortune that I had looked everywhere but down. There on the pavement at my feet was printed the Tenant Parking Only sign. Ah well. My apologies to anyone I may have put out that day – it wasn’t intentional. And my thanks for the use of your spot. I thoroughly enjoyed my day in your beautiful town. I'll be more careful next time.
