The Walk

All set at Whitesands Bay
After the superb weather of yesterday, today's was just a little disappointing. We parked at Whitesands Bay, posed for the obligatory mug shot, and then set off along the coast path following the path we took in June (when it rained). Soon we spotted the first seals of this holiday.

Ahh...seals n pups
It was pretty blustery round St David's Head and we were soon heading down and away from it and looking forward (and up) to Penberry - an impressive hill that was right in our path.
Penberry ahead
On the way we found a convenient wall which sheltered us from the strong breeze and had our coffee then set off to climb over Penberry - not quite up to the summit, but a good long pull up the hill. It was with relief that we paused for a moment to re-group as we looked back at St Davids Head.

"There they are" Sue spies more seals
Now we had a good long steady downhill stretch and along the cliff tops, stopping every once in a while for more seals and their pups before we arrive at Abereiddy.
