Newgale

The 31 October and here we are walking in shirtsleeves. Today’s venue was a circular walk based on Newgale,  Pembrokeshire.

Route

I was surprised to see a reasonable surf breaking with a couple of surfer dudes out enjoying themselves. With the tide ebbing we walked onto the beach  to Pwll March and then cut up along a rather overgrown path to Pen Y Cwm.

We turned up a road past some houses and continued along a path which the further we went the wetter it became until we hit a minor road.

Here we turned south until the village of Roch was reached and where we had lunch in the village play area.

Suitably rested we continued on tarmac in a south westerly direction until we came to the coast at Nolton Haven and then north following the coast path back to Newgale.

Whilst in Roch I received a very curt text from my wife who was clearly not best pleased that I had treated myself to a slice of home made Christmas cake which she was keeping for a good friend. A similar incident took place a few years ago. I can report that the cake was delicious.
