But back to Uncle. Again Husband reminded me that some of the ashes would have been coffin. I would like to think that the cremation workers remove the body from the coffin before it's burned and return it to the undertakers (or whoever provides the coffin) for recycling. I would have no problem with that but I suppose some people might. Such a waste of trees. When I go I will be happy with a cardboard box. (Children of mine, please note!)
It was a lovely sunny day, the tide was in and the wind was light so I only had to paddle into the water a short way, which is just as well as it was stony-bottomed and I could easily have ended up in the water myself. (Husband had the camera ready just in case.)

On the way back I spotted a gate I'd not noticed before. It turned out to be the gate of the Jubilee Gardens.
Apparently the garden is a community project undertaken by Mumbles Community Council and the residents of Llanfair House, a local home providing supported care and accommodation for people with mental health issues.
