To Burry Port, Carmarthenshire, go the friends and family of Evan Morgan, a Pontypridd amateur film-maker, member of Cardiff Cine Society and loyal subject of the newly crowned Queen. There, having created an encampment, they enjoy the sea air, cockling, fishing, singing and dancing (with music provided by an accordion player and an accomplished bottle-blower) and general larking about. They also visit Tenby and the Ferryside Regatta which includes coracles.
