Carmarthen
After a great home cooked bfast we down loaded our pic’s and updated our blog while doing this we saw a squirrel on the fence outside our lodge.
We went and explored Carmarthen, which is the oldest town in Wales - the Romans established a walled town here in 43 AD. Before that it was a Celtic tribal capital. The area is also said to the birth place of the wizard Merlin and nearby Llyn y Fan the home of the Lady of the Lake. It was also the site of the first Welsh Assembly before annexation (called the Act of Union) by England. Carmarthen also has the high percentage of Welsh language speakers in all of Wales. It is in fact the birth place of the Welsh nation. Such a long history makes it a very interesting area.
That night we had dinner and went to the club house and there was a lady singer on she was ok.
