Monday’s walk on 2nd December was to be based on Moylegrove and the local coast path.
The small village has a free car park, toilets and a board showing local walking routes.
We set off south west straight uphill on a minor road looking for the footpath down to the coast. The above route map does show a track to the farm but this is not on our older maps and we were a little taken aback to see a most unwelcome sign.
However our path was a little further on and led to the Witches Cauldron a huge collapsed cave. The tide was out which had trapped a large fish seen swimming around in the water below. When the tide is right it is possible to canoe into the cave.
After a coffee break we walked down to the cauldron and walked north. The sea was very calm and unusually there were a number of boats in the area including what looked like a navy warship.
Lunch was taken near Ciebwr Bay.
A decision was made to continue north along the coast and then turn inland following footpaths and bridleways back to Moylegrove.
Although we were now in December a blackberry bush clearly had its timing wrong as there was blossom and one green blackberry!
