Day 2 Broadhaven to Solva Tuesday 4 April 2017

Leaving Helen and Ian behind we set off from the Anchor.

Conditions a little inclement to start but it soon brightens up.

Leaving Las Vegas actually leaving Broadhaven.

A famous Welsh sport, land swimming over rocks.

The only way is up

Yaz and the plastic population

It’s blowing a hoolie; even the horses are sheltering from the wind.

So why the long face?

Where all the gates have names-and the posts- and the benches…..

Onward towards Newgale.

Legs quite tired. What is this strange feature? The old man of Hoy- we seem to have gone off piste

And suddenly it’s typically tropical.

Before we stumble into tellitubbie land.

Before chancing upon Graham; he seems to be missing the curly thing on his head!

Day 1 Marloes to Broadhaven Monday 3 April 2017

An earlyish (is that a word?) start. On the road by 7.30 am to get from Kilgetty to Marloes by 8.30 am.

Find Grouty on the prowl with a full set of gadgets.

Leave the car in the Lobster Pot and we are off. Cool but bright blue skys.

Up out of Marloes and onto the cliff path; pretty straightforward- a pleasant undulating peramblulate with gentle ups and downs.

A bit windy though- luckily I don’t have hair issues!

And fortunately not a rodent in sight.

Nice looking place; apparently it’s a timeshare. St Brides castle.

A bridge over troubled water?

Or the 2 billy goats gruff?

Onward to Little Haven

A little hamlet with a big heart (or at least a big sign)

Oh no, not another kissing gate. Grouty, quick, where is that chapstick?

Woh, isn’t Wales wide!

850k worth of sea defences underway. Not sure all the locals are happy.

And finally the pub. A cosy pint in The Swan. Andy, the landlord, also not happy with the sea defences.

Mistake, let’s walk back to Marloes by the road. After an hour the rain kicks in- a damp tramp back to the Lobster Pot.

We get a warm welcome from Ian and Helen at the Anchor guesthouse in Little Haven on our return and some Welsh cakes. Unfortunately the miserable weather means we can’t enjoy the setting sun on our expansive joint balcony; we’ll have to wait a bit longer for a sunset.

We scrub up and give up on walking for the day; Paul the taxi driver takes us to the St Brides Inn in Little Haven. When offered payment he responds “Don’t worry, we’ll sort it when I pick you up!”. That doesn’t happen in London.

G and Ts, a nice meal and a glass or 2 of wine follow. Grouty swerved the cheese and we ring Paul and he ferries us to bed. Very welcome after 16 miles of tramping.
