Laugharne's Brown Dylan perspective
It might have been the same as yesterday - gorgeous blue sunlit skies and flat calm seas - but it wasn't. The stormy, rain-heavy southerly winds hit the estuary from an early hour and persisted throughout the day. It rained, the wind howled and the clouds lay over the town like a choking, wet blanket.
