But according to the landscape it can't be Fishguard.
Not that I am an expert on Fishguard but having been there I can't remember this situation.

My first actual trip in 1966, went with Ma, Sis and our new Triumph 2000 (craned on and off obviously) from Fishguard to Cork before touring the South and West then meeting up with Pa who was spending the summer running day trips around Dublin Bay on the Western Lady 3. As rough a trip as I've ever experienced, fortunately it didn't put me off.
