Tenby: St Catherine's Island

This is my first photo from Wales, which I visited last week. The photo was taken last Friday, on the last day of my holidays, which also was the day with the best weather. It shows the beach of the charming town of Tenby and St Catherine's Island in the background.

Tenby (Welsh: Dinbych-y-Pysgod, which means little town of the fishes/little fortress of the fish) is located in Pembrokeshire, south-west Wales.
St Catherine's Island (Welsh: Ynys Catrin) is a tidal island, linked to the town of Tenby at low tide, like here. It's home to a fort, which was built in 1870 to protect Pembroke Dock.
The water in the background is Carmarthen Bay, the land in the left hand background is Caldey Island. The flag in the foreground is the flag of Pembrokeshire.

Hope you like it. :-)
