River Taf Laugharne


The oil painting above is of the river Taf at Laugharne. We have often sailed and anchored in this estuary.
 The one thing about sailing is that every time it is different, different tides , different wind strength and direction... Its dealing with the unexpected like the engine cutting out just as you are approaching your mooring in a strong tidal flow amongst yachts ten times the value of yours. Yes an engine that has been perfectly behaved all day will decide to have a hissyfit just at the wrong time. I wonder what their gender is?
Anyway we tend to leave Laugharne on the incoming tide early morning generally a lovely time of day with the sun breaking through the mist.
Today we had a day off and went walking with Jac.
