Fifty years ago this month, I left home and set off for Aberystwyth. There I met Jenny and made many friends who I’ve kept in touch with at Christmas time, but we’ve never planned a get together until this year. The pictures of the participants are private. However I couldn’t let the “moment” pass without referencing it here with pictures of the harbour and what used to be the Central Hotel where I learnt just how special malt whiskies are. A real disappointment it is no longer a licensed bar, just a coffee bar! One thing that wasn’t disappointment however was the weather. Fifty years ago we had 28 days of non-stop rain – and that sort of coloured my opinion of Aber’s weather for life. For our weekend this year we had three days (Thu-Sat) of lovely sunshine.
