There has been lovely weather over the last few days. So I thought it would be a great opportunity to take a trip down to Pembrokeshire.
I decided to take my girlfriend and a last minute guest. Oh and my Cocker Spaniel dog Jack.
So off we went in the car down to West Wales to Pembrokeshire.
Bosherston Lily Ponds
Our first stop was Bosherston Lily Ponds. These three narrow valleys were flooded between 1780 and 1860 to create beautiful lakes. It is now an important nature reserve and very popular for walkers.
Broad Haven Beach
Halfway along this route is the lovely Broad Haven beach. Jack in particular enjoyed this. But if you every want to see a dog who is scared of the sea, then Jack is that dog.
St. Govan’s Head, Pembrokeshire
About a mile further along the road is St. Govan’s Head. A very scenic stretch of coastline. We didn’t walk down the steps to the Chapel, but did walk along the path to get a good view of the coast and Broad Haven.
With all this walking, my girlfriend and Jack were having a competition to see who was the most tired. But the dog won. He drank two full bowls of water and fell asleep as soon as he entered the car.
Stack Rock, Pembrokeshire
Stack Rock was the next place to visit. I thought had the most scenic views of the day and there were also thousands of noisy guillemots enjoying the sunshine on the rocks.
With the day drawing to a close, we had enough time to call into Amroth for a quick ice cream on the beach.
