Another fantastic May Bank Holiday weekend. It seemed on the first night, that Jo’s chat with Mother Nature hadn’t worked as a fierce storm came across the camp site, ensuring everyone knew the status of their tents! But then, by 10am the next morning the sun had come out and dried up all the rain. (Though Kev still needed to do a trip to the laundrette)
The sun then just got better and better through the weekend – culminating in various amounts of sunburn and lots of stunning views and photos.
We made the most of the activities Pembrokeshire can offer. A walk along the coastal path stopping at very regular intervals for flowers, birds, seals and the occasional ‘is it a dolphin or is it a rock?’ Surfing / beach bumming and ice cream tasting were sampled by quite a few on Whitesands bay. A trip over to the RSPB reserve island gave great twitching opportunities including plastic puffins and stunning sea cliffs – apparently the highest in Wales (or UK? – certainly not a good place to go if you are recovering from concussion!). On the monday Craig lead a valiant team coasteering and they all returned unscathed. A group of us went climbing but I think we were outdone by the 5 year old learning to lead and the 2 mad soloers!
Just a shame we had to come home – thank you to Jo for a great trip and to all involved.
