Another wonderfully sunny day saw us yet again admiring this route at its very best.
Out at St David's Head a homing pigeon befriended us. Soon afterwards, after passing through orchid meadows, we came upon a tame kestrel. Nearby, after we'd passed through a corridor of tormentil, cowslips, birds foot trefoil, primroses and bluebells, we watched as a gannet caught its lunch. Spectacular. A buzzard glided overhead whilst choughs and oystercatchers argued in the bay far below. Black redstarts cackled at us from their viewpoints in the gorse. We failed however to spot any seals.
Meanwhile, the burning sun blasted us from an azure sky. Much sun tan cream was required. Miss Application ruled ok - everyone has red bits.
A great black-backed gull toured the coast line. We watched through a haze of bluebells as it glided past the spectacular cliffs.
Lunch was taken near Aberdinas, then we eschewed Abereiddy in favour of Traeth Llyfn (pictured) where the two Sues and Liz enjoyed a swim.
The Shed at Porthgain provided a fitting end to the day by way of Cornish style cream teas for everyone. Then an old school bus appeared to deliver us back to Treleddyd-fawr, where we later reassembled for an evening of international cuisine and debate.
What fun! About 18 km in not much less than 8 hours was today's impressive tally.
