We awaked late that morning. Until 11am we didn't get the bike. We reached Tenby and did a short walk through its center. It's pretty, but has very old houses, a bit decadent.




We went to Pembroke to see its castle. Really good castle. We liked it a lot. And its cavern is unique!




We ate a hamburguer near the entrance, and we taste for the first time the fishy taste of the chips in UK. Didn't like it.

Our idea now was reaching Caernarfon, but the roads in Wales are very entertaining, not only because of their curves, but also because of their heavy traffic. It started to pour, also (and D-dry didn't its job).



As we saw we couldn't get to Caernarfon in a "UK-hour", we diverted to Harlech through Barmouth.




We found a terrible B&B in a miracle in Harlech, for only 69!. The accomodation in that village is very expensive, i suppose because of its golf resort. We had dinner in a Indian restaurant, and had some pints in two pubs. Our first ale pints and UK pubs (i don't know why, but there's no UK beer in Spain). After this day, we got the tradition to drink pints after every journey. Good idea indeed!
