Weekly photo challenge – sunset

If only I had seen the photo challenge topic a couple of days earlier – as we have had some lovely sunsets in London this week, with some very warm weather, for this time of year!

I don’t have very many sunset photos, but I do have this one, taken in Swansea, overlooking the docks, and close to the Marina, where we have had many happy family holidays, and where my Dad used to work as a young man. Swansea is a place of many memories, and a place I love. My Dad grew up there, lived there during the war, and my parents returned to Swansea about 15 years ago. My Dad passed away three years this month, and as we approach the anniversary of his death, I am looking forward to returning to visit my Mum who still lives at Blackpill (halfway along Swansea bay).
