Caldey Island – Wales

We recently spent a week in Tenby, Wales, a part of the country that I have never previously visited.  As the weather was particularly good it seemed like a wise idea to take a boat trip to Caldey Island.  One of Britain’s Holy Islands, it is inhabited by Cisterian Monks who have been resident since 1926.  The monks who farm the island are self sufficient  and produce and sell  an array of items including chocolate, perfumes and toiletries.  Transferring between boat and island by amphibious landing craft was a mode of disembarkation I have never experienced before!
