Saundersfoot to Tenby (Wales Coast Path)

Sunday 19th November

By the time we all arrived and parked our cars in Saundersfoot, everyone had packed up in preparation for the drive home to Bristol.

Of course, we were going to squeeze a walk in before then! A couple of options were available and I had signed up to co-lead a walk of around eight miles.

Manorbier to St. Florence (Wales Coast Path)

Saturday 18th November 2017

Saturday had come and, with it, the opportunity for another inland walk around one of Pembrokeshire’s many pockets…

However, a number of us were more enticed with the idea of a coastal walk, in spite of the commonly-known weather forecast.

The Hideaway

Thursday 16th – Sunday 19th November 2017

When I intended to join Brunel Walking Group for a long weekend in Pembrokeshire last month, I could’ve bear the thought of sharing a Youth Hostel – let alone any space – with anywhere between fifty and sixty people. I’d seen images of the YHA; it looked both modern and full of facilities. Maybe one day I’ll feel more comfortable in approaching such a situation.

I didn’t want to miss out on this weekend, as I have done for each of the previous four years. This left me with the decision to find my own accomodation, for which I eventually turned to the AirBnB website.

Llansteffan Circular Walk (Wales Coast Path)

Thursday 16th November 2017

I’d booked the day off work, plus a further three to follow. This Thursday was officially the start of my long-weekend away in Pembrokeshire – my first ever visit to this corner of Wales – and part of Brunel Walking Group’s annual “Christmas” Away Weekend.

Having booked my own accommodation away from the hustle and bustle of the Youth Hostel, I was travelling alone. Leaving my home in North Somerset by 9am that morning, I stood a good chance of reaching Carmarthenshire by midday.

#walk1000miles: November 2017

I’ve done it! As of last night, I’ve officially completed my #walk1000miles challenge and with one whole month to spare!

On the Wales Coast Path, last month.

At the end of October, I had 922.25 miles in the bag. Let’s take a look at how November 2017 went.

Rural Dolgellau

Saturday 27th May 2017

My first full day in Mid Wales; the morning after our arrival. Some didn’t turn up or even pitch their tents until close to midnight!

We awoke to the sound and chill of rain British Weather. Two walks were happening at the same time; both with early starts. Everyone was moving, I just wanted to slow down and breathe for a bit… So, I ended up spending the day intentionally alone.
