A Trip to the Seaside
Photography by John Ball - 12.30pm, 28 May 1998 (with Agfa ePhoto307 digital camera)
I headed west in the morning and spent a pleasant two hours wandering round the coastal town of Tenby. My pictures feature some traditional British seaside activities.

Above: Evening boat cruises are advertised in this busy corner of Tenby, near the jetty.

Footnote: I'd like to compliment Tenby's residents and holiday-makers on their honesty. During my walk round Tenby, I lost my car keys! I discovered the loss when I returned to my car so I had no idea where or when the keys had fallen from my pocket. I went to the local Police Station to report the loss. The constable on duty smiled and immediately brought out the missing keys from under his desk. They'd been handed in 15 minutes earlier by someone who'd found them on the beach!! :o)
