Dylan Thomas, Laugharne, Carmarthenshire

Of course we could not go to Laugharne without visiting The Boathouse where Dylan and Caitlin Thomas lived with their children. (You should be able to read the visitors' information board quite easily.)

The Boathouse is now a small cafe (which we filled completely with our group) and it also has various Dylan Thomas memorabilia and a small museum upstairs and the sitting room is laid out just as it might have been when he and the family lived there.

The view through the window of the Garage where Dylan Thomas would sit and write his many plays - memorably 'Under Milk Wood'. There is even some beer on the table.

What a truly inspirational place. It looks as if time has stood still in his room where he wrote. Lovely pictures.

Thanks very much Jo for your comments. It is a most inspring place and I want to return. With so many in the group I had to be torn away from the museum area of the cafe! as they all wanted to get on with the walk! Ann x
