V51-2 Penarth to Swansea

The channel into the Tawe lock at Swansea shows in this picture of the outer harbour:

In preparation for leaving, we had a look at the outer harbour at low water. We could see that from the lock you go to the orange buoy (leave it to port), then following the guidance we got coming in from the lock keeper: make for the red brick building – keeping a straight line from the orange buoy. When you get to the old ro-ro quay, make for the (slightly port-side of the) centre of the outer harbour.

We went to the waterfront museum. This has very good history displays of Welsh industry.

In the flamboyantly decorated Gigi Gao’s Favourite Authentic Chinese restaurant on the quayside of the Tawe Basin. Watch out the dishes are huge – share each between two!

Visited the Glynn Vivian Art Gallery situated opposite the Swansea College of Art. One artist shares my idea of old circuit boards as art!

I recommend this gallery.
