The Moorings River Towy

The above paintings is of the Pilglas Moorings on the river Towy looking seaward towards Ferryside. I particularly liked this little painting which sold at our recent exhibition. We used to keep our boat on moorings here and then sail off over the Carmarthen Bar, an interesting sandbank extending 2 miles out to sea with a navigable channel if you could find it. The number of shipwrecks is testimony to how dangerous it can be in bad weather.
