We went to Carew Castle which is about 40 minutes from here by car. Isn't it gorgeous? We ended up with 22 people and 6 dogs. Luckily, my allergies are better these days. I seem to be fine with dogs in the open air as long as we don't touch. I also don't hug people at the end of the day in case of doggie contamination. It has only happened once, but I would not like a repeat. Here is our favourite dog named Ruby. She comes on all the hikes. She is quite old and so has a travel bag for when she gets tired. I would like a travel bag like Ruby, but Spiderman says he is NOT carrying me around.

Here is the view of the millpond. Isn't it tranquil? We walked all the way around the millpond at a leisurely pace to accommodate everyone.

While we were having our picnic one of the greyhounds thought it was a tiny lapdog and decided to sit on Liz's lap. Glad it wasn't me!

After lunch, those who wanted to, had a more brisk walk around the millpond. Then we went back to the picnic area, nibbled a few more snacks and took one last look at the ruined castle.
It was a grand day out and a perfect start to the season of outings with the Carmarthen Vegans.
