Damp again over night through to the morning but then clearing up with a fair bit of sunshine in the afternoon. Today we returned to Newport to get a proper look at the beach. Parking up in the same place as yesterday, we this time crossed the bridge over the river. We took the footpath […]

Another grey day, a bit of damp in the air but not enough to stop our travels. A bit of a long drive today as we had to pick up where we left off from St David’s, from where we got as far as Fishguard and Lower Town. Our first port of call was Pwllgwaelod, […]

Well our time in Pembrokeshire has drawn to a close and at the minute it is up there with Cornwall for beaches but as they say ‘the world is young’, so let’s see. A miserable start to the day, but it dried up for us to pack away and get on the move. The journey […]

Wet again through the night, but dried up quite quickly this morning and though mostly cloudy the sun made an appearance as the day progressed. We didn’t wish to venture far today, so just popped a couple of miles down the road to Carew Castle. The scenic walk around the castle wasn’t very long so […]

I know we need rain but if it could just rain over night we would all be happy, but it has rained here from Friday night through to lunchtime today, which to be honest is just not acceptable! Yesterday we walked for the shortest time and distance I could get away with (Poppydog!) but today […]

A very heavy shower caught us on our morning walk and how! However, as is the way, it stopped raining as we got back and though quite cloudy stayed dry for the rest of the day, with the odd bit of sunshine too! Today we planned to visit Ginst Point and Laugharne (pronounced Larn – […]

A lovely sunny day for us today, definitely cooler, especially in the breeze, but a great day for walking. Today we headed for Freshwater West, a lovely long sandy beach, very busy for about 200m either side of the main car park, the rest of it though, relatively quiet. This is quite a remote beach […]

Oh yes, after a damp start to the day, the sun came out again around lunchtime and stayed with us for the rest of the day. We parked up at Stack Rocks car park (free), which involves a couple of miles drive down a single lane track across Merrion Artillery Range (this lane and carpark […]

A bit damp overnight and this morning and it is certainly a bit cooler, but though mostly cloudy the rest of the day was fine with sun making an appearance around 5pm. A good walking day, so we parked up at the NT car park at Broad Haven (the Stackpole one) and set off in […]

Cloudy day all day today but still pleasantly warm and dry. We thought we would carry on where we left off yesterday and complete this section of the Pembrokeshire coastline, so we drove to Dale again, parking as before. It was still very busy, with lots of people out on the water and drinking and […]
