After a walk on Amroth Beach we settled at one of the many picnic tables outside Temple Bar Inn for lunch. This pub is directly across the road from the beach, so you have great views if you sit outside as we did. The dogs helped themselves to water from the dog bowl under the table and my aunt and I headed inside to order. The baguettes on offer (cheese and ham) looked quite big so we decided to share one between us and ordered a second one for my uncle. Ordering took a while as it was the beginning of the season, and the staff weren’t all fully trained and one of the coffee machines was on the blink. However, the bread was nice and fresh, and the ham and cheese were very tasty. There was no decaf coffee so I had to settle for a hot chocolate, not that that’s a bad thing.
I have no photos of the food – only photos of the dogs looking longingly at us. You see, my uncle thought he’d forgotten the dogs’ biscuits so there was no lunch for them. They were happy with the bits of baguette they were given then my aunt went back inside and bought each of them a doggy ice cream. Later that afternoon they also each got a doggy biscuit from a café. A couple of weeks later, after we had returned from our trip, my uncle found the dog biscuits. He hadn’t forgotten them; he’d just hidden them so well he forgot they were there. The poor dogs could smell them though – no wonder they spent the rest of the holiday whenever they were in the boot of the car trying to dig their way to them.
