Sunday photoblogging: Laugharne

by Chris Bertram on August 7, 2022

The town where Dylan Thomas lived and is buried (and where he possibly imagined as the setting for Under Milk Wood).

Laugharne: rain approaching

When I was eight my father took a five-year posting in Pendine (five miles away from Laugharne). By the time it ended I’d had some intense, Wordsworth- and Heaneyesque experiences of the Natural World, as well as discovering Love – the latter involving a girl whose (enviably sophisticated and bohemian) family lived in Laugharne. Returned to outer south London (and a single-sex school), I yearned to get back there – although return trips on holiday could only confirm that we didn’t, in fact, live there any more (and of course we never had lived in Laugharne).

My feelings about Laugharne are – still – complex! Still a beautiful place, though, while the weather keeps off.

Another fine photo–and I’m a Thomas fan too.
