Swansea mid-winter tourist season.

Two-three solitary of us overnight visitors enjoying the beauty of the sunrise over the Hazards across the calm of Great Oyster Bay.

Quadruple the tourist accommodation there and eight-twelve of us on the sand at dawn.

The line up of the two bespoke viewing seats on the pier multiplied.

Put another way.

One coach of streaming tourists becomes three big buses parked in the tree framed architecture of Ross.

The narrow wandering footpath of the high street of Stanley needing a two people passing lane.

How is the charm of our treasure island to carry an oversized tourist overlay?
