On the Dylan Thomas trail to the seaside

This morning we left the rolling green hills and tall hedgerows of inland Wales and drive to the seaside town Laugharne, when the poet and playwright Dylan Marlais Thomas lived in a boatshed and wrote in a nearby shed. David’s great-great grandfather, Rev Gwilym Marles Thomas (see yesterday’s post) was Dylan Thomas’ great uncle, which makes David a third cousin twice removed or something to the bard. When we visited the boatshed and mentioned this relationship, the staff took our photo for their website. Dylan Thomas was born 100 years ago and there is a lot of interest in him. We felt quite proud to have such a connection, albeit it remote.20140607-083039-30639570.jpg
