Tenby and Happy New Year

We've been in Tenby, Wales, for the week. The weather was glorious and the view from the living room window was amazing.



From that same window we were able to watch the athletes training for today's Ironman Competition. It involves swimming, cycling and running. Not for the faint hearted!

It's a shame we couldn't stay to watch the swimming part of the competition as we would have had a 'front row' view but we needed to get home in time for the Jewish New Year which starts at sunset tonight. So I wish you all shana tova, a happy and healthy new year and share my usual helping of apple and honey with you.

    1. I wouldn't say it's easy to get there, Hilary. Took us almost two hours just to get from Swansea to Tenby. We went by train.

  4. Wales looks lovely. Glad you had such a nice time. And I think it counts as exercise if you watch training. I wish you and your family a very happy new year indeed. Blessing to all.

    1. I hate to break it to you, Joanne, but watching does not count as exercise!!

  5. What a lovely view! Tenby is part of my childhood memories. We went there every year from when I was 3 until I was 12. I just adored it. Thank you for the photo! It takes me right back there, and blessings to you and your family for the new year!

  6. What a lovely view-I can imagine being there. The ironman competitions were started in Hawaii by a husband and wife. Called ironman because men are supposedly stronger and fitter!. How silly. This reminds me that it was only in 1960 that the 800 metres for women was added to the Olympics-before that considered too unladylike. Longer distances added after that year. SHANAH TOVAH. Petra.
