After buying a new tent from Halfords a few weeks back, we finally decided to go camping last weekend in Aberaeron, Ceredigion.
Aeron Coast Caravan Park in Aberaeron was our chosen destination. After getting the tent up pretty quickly before dark we ventured to the Harbourmaster hotel for a couple of real ales.
Aberaeron is a lovely little town. It has a lovely harbour with the surrounding houses painted in bright and differing colours.
The nearby coastline shoreline is formed from pebbles. Although we noticed small bits of sand in places.
We had a look around some of Aberaeron’s shops. A lot of which seemed to sell honey and even honey ice-cream.
On the Saturday morning, we decided to pay a visit to Devil’s Bridge. The village is best known for its famous bridge, or should I say bridges? In fact, there are three separate bridges and each one is built on top of the other! The original bridge was built between built between 1075–1200. The second bridge was built in 1753 and the final bridge in 1901.
The village and bridge get its name from a legend that says that the bridge was built by the devil in return for the soul of the first life to cross the bridge. But the Devil was tricked by a woman who threw food onto the bridge for her dog to eat. Therefore becoming the first life to cross the bridge.
There is a woodland trail that takes you around the valley for views of the bridge.
It was back to Aberaeron then to watch the FA Cup Final. It was during the game that we were rocked by the news that Swansea City player Besian Idrizaj had passed away. He was only 22.
