Swansea Ramblers Walk
Dylan Thomas' 99th Birthday
26th October 2013
Leader: Zetta Flew
To celebrate Dylan's 99th Birthday on the 27th, we went for a stroll in and around Laugharne. The Dylan Centenary gears up in 2014 and we'll be walking there again in 2014 but to mark this birthday, we went out along the Dylan Birthday walk then over to his grave to pay our respects.
Afterwards we went to Browns for refreshments and to sing happy birthday - not to Dylan but to one of our group who we believe will NOT be 100 this time!
Swansea Ramblers offer a range of walks for most abilities.
Try an easy walk of 2-3 hours or our longer strenuous mountain walks for the experienced walker.
Maybe you'd like to explore walking for the first time with a friendly group of people?
- Come with Swansea Ramblers!
If you'd like to try a Swansea walk then do come along and find out what the great outdoors is all about.
It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.
You'll be very welcome to join us for three free walks.

Setting off for the Dylan Birthday Walk
Information boards describe history of Laugharne
Everyone is enjoying the stroll
The views here are fantastic!
Heading west to circle around to Laugharne
Up onto the hillside
Got to go over the hill and down into Broadway
Zetta tried to recruit some new walkers
In Broadway we found Roche Castle
Then it was over to Dylan's grave
Where the rain came down again
Over another hill and down into Delacorse
Heading for the boathouse
Then the writing shed
Good job the tide was out!
Back along the coast path
