Another day, another long walk….

Bright and early we are up, to our surprise the skies are clear its a picture perfect morning. Coffee and some fruit we head west along the path.
The views are amazing ! There is so much to take in we seem to be constantly stopping to look at something.
We walk the black cliffs, sections of fern and bracken for 90 minutes.  Faced with another section with 200 steps down and then up again.  We turn back to do it all again.
The iPhone is not the best camera ๐ŸŽฅ for capturing dolphins ๐Ÿฌ a few hundred metres away, so sorry about the picture. For 30 minutes of our return journey we follow the pod tracking along side us.
Of course Pam wanted to swim with the dolphins, however on finding the water was 15ยบ she decided against it.
You do need to stop and look at the view, rather that look around while you walk. The path is very close to the cliff edge in lots of places.

Back in the Hymer we pack up and say goodbye to this beautiful place and continue along the coast.

We stop at a small lay-by in Fishguard for a coffee. Couldn’t help but be inspired by this patch of poppies and other bits, happily enjoying a moment or two of Welsh sunlight.

St. Davids is the most westerly point in Wales. It a bit of a tourist trap. Tourist coaches line the main area dropping of people to wander aimlessly it seemed. We opted for a nice little carpark with a lovely view across the bay. We lunch and have a little rest after the long walk this morning.

From St. Davids we continue on towards Tenby.  Our cousin Anne has recommended the Pembrokeshire walks west of Tenby and we find a quiet spot for the night just out of Lydstep.

This picturesque spot was a great stepping off point for our next walk, its what wild camping is all about.
