To celebrate my wife’s birthday I had booked a short break at the Celtic Haven between Tenby and Manorbier Pembs. The weather forecast for Saturday was looking good and a walk to Manorbier along the coast was decided on.
Climbing up from the beach from Lydstep Bay we walked through a woodland thick with wild garlic.
This part of coastal path does have some steep up and downs but the promise of a cafe lunch kept Mrs Bob going.

Just as we stopped for banana break a sea mist suddenly appeared which spoiled the views although inland was fine.

Nearing Manorbier we passed a zawn, a narrow slot in the cliff and then a cromlech known as the Kings Quoit and examples of spring bursting out.

Turning into the bay, Manorbier castle came into view.It was closed due to a wedding taking place.
Anyway we were heading for the cafe “Beach Break” where we had a good lunch.
Suitably refreshed we headed back partly inland to avoid some but not all of the ups and downs. Not far from Lydstep a young family were walking in front of us when we heard one of them shout that they had seen a snake! They had indeed, an adder sunbathing just off the path. This was a first for my wife and has now probably put the aforementioned family off country walking!
Back at the cottage we had a well deserved cup of tea and then I went for a swim – not in the sea but a swimming pool and shortly after a two course meal in the restaurant. If “The Navigator” reads this he should realise that not all walks have to be through bogs and mud sitting in a damp field drinking from a flask! He won’t change.
