As has been the case with all of our trips to the beach this week, the tide was out. We walked along the breakwater of the harbour past the cute little lighthouse which had a plaque stating that it had been restored in 1996.
We then went down onto the beach for a spot of rock pooling.
There weren't many pools but we did find several crabs.
Some of the crabs were bigger than others!
There were lots of barnacles on the rocks ....
... and lots of shells.
Back up by the harbour we came across a memorial marking the spot where Amelia Earhart came ashore in 1928 as the first woman to have flown across the Atlantic Ocean. On this occasion she was only a passenger and it wasn't until 1932 that she became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic but her visit in 1928 put Burry Port in the map. (Shame someones dog had relived itself against the memorial!)
There was also the original large wooden buoy beside the harbour which the sea plane 'Friendship' which Amelia landed in was moored.
