sea and sieve

a glimpse | bishop’s palace, st davids

Bishop’s Palace at St Davids in Wales sits snug below a Norman cathedral, so low that the sea-view of this peninsular city disappears. I came across it while camping in Pembrokeshire last summer, but we didn’t go in because the price was a little high and we spotted a temptingly low exterior wall.

I don’t know anything of the history (paying the price for penny-pinching), and I’ve resisted finding out because ‘Bishop’s Palace’ makes it sound scandalously louche. The way the sunlight pours in through those intricate buttery arches only adds to the effect.

I’m peeking over the edge of blogging for the very first time, so I thought a view irreverently stolen over a wall might be a nice place to start.
