My friend Ilse lived in the Bay. I used to go here a lot. A bit lifeless, the Bay. Not many boats. Had some red wine in St. Davids Hotel.

I have lived in Cardiff for 40 years, I miss the old lively community atmosphere of fishermen working on their boats at low tide, despite the unsightly mud banks. Then Cardiff Bay Development Corporation came to town. They constructed the Barrage to keep the water in which rid us of the mud but also of the community, who they drove out with their mooring prices and attracted all the yuppies and snobs, that came along expecting Marina Del-Ray, drinking their red wine while they looked down their noses at the locals. Shame, perhaps that's why it's now considered so lifeless.

@CardiffNightOwl sorry I had my red wine there. A friend invited me. I thought your comment was excellent though - and it is so true what you write! I am sure the community spirit has changed tremendously. I think I have read somewhere that the Barrage is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. What was the fishing like in the past? I miss the opportunity of seeing many fishermen anywhere in Wales these days. Fresh fish is not sold here it seems.
So now the water is in - what do they do?
What can be done in Cardiff Bay to make it better? I know a lot of it has been destroyed.I am sorry, Annette
