It was a cool cloudy start but the sun appeared soon after our 9:15 departure and it became hot again. We enjoyed a lovely run along the coast to Amroth where we popped into a seafront coffee shop. We parted company with the sea for an inland route to Laugharne, where we photographed the castle, boathouse and Brown’s hotel, where Dylan Thomas spent his royalties. This was the last we saw of the coast as we cut inland on the start of our homeward journey, to St Clears and on into Carmarthen, a horrible busy traffic clogged place, somewhere I never want to return. Signposting was poor but we eventually found our way onto the B4300 to Llandeilo, where we tried in vain to find a B&B, the lady in the Tourist Information telling us there was a shortage of accommodation. The town itself, pleasant enough in the daytime, was uninviting in the early evening with bored youths hanging around the streets or racing through in cars.

We opted to ride along the A40, quiet at this time of the day, to a campsite five miles out of town near Llangadog. It made for a late night but a nice site and a good choice.
