Penbre Area

Although “The Navigator” had cancelled today`s walk because of a grim weather forecast he phoned me at 0900 to tell me the Met. Office had made a mistake and a walk was on if I wanted to join in. Well, washing down paintwork as I had promised Mrs Bob, took a back seat and rushing around I was ready to go at 1000.

Route

We parked the car on the hill on the outskirts of Trimsaran where the rain was already easing and we headed on lanes and footpaths down towards Penbre Park including one along a long disused canal and a diverted NCN 4 cycle route – not one for road bikes.

A coffee break was taken near the Park and then onto the Millennium Coast Path to Burry Port.

We came across an odd directional sign post but realised this had to do with Amelia Earhart. Trepassey is the place in Newfoundland where she took off.

We found shelter from the wind behind the harbour lighthouse and then walked inland again on some lovely paths back to our start.
