My husband is from Kidwelly and we went to his mother's grave with flowers for Mothers Day yesterday. We called in at the Gatehouse Cafe for drinks and cake on the way back, and went for a little walk by the castle.

here. This Gwenllian lived in Kidwelly Castle and is famous for leading the defense of the castle when her husband was away. The stone bears her name and the date 1136. Maybe I'll write about her too one day.
It was a grey spring day, and it started raining on the way home, but I found it quite atmospheric. Maybe we'll go back in the summer and I'll share some photos of the inside in the sunshine.
