Looking back: Dylan Thomas’ Boat House

In the present, the weather is still a seeming never ending succession of storms. Even now I can hear the wind buffeting the house…

But I found these pictures – taken late January, a bit back. I was working, travelling from West Wales to Birmingham, with only the prospect of a dismal hotel ahead. I passed the sign – “Dylan Thomas Boathouse”. So a quick u-turn and I explored the narrow roads, down the side of The Taf Estuary. The weather was so perfectly clear. The sun setting. And while the Boathouse itself was closed, here was the poet’s writing hut, perched above the bay. I peered through the glass into the hut. The bottles of beer to hand, jacket on the chair – he just stepped out…. a few decades ago.
