- This morning saw us undecided. Should we stay or should we go now? (Theres a song in there somewhere...hands up if you know it.) To help us make up our minds we went for another walk on the spectacular beach. We headed to the left today, whereas yesterday we went right. After a few hundred yards we started to skirt around an area that looked quite rocky and slippery, until Jayne commented that ...
... consult the tide tables for the Milford to Dale section in particular! Most of the path is easily walkable in trainers though boots are better. Boots have better soles for the rugged parts and my trainers did get thoroughly sodden with dew from the grass on one or two of the more overgrown sections. That reminds me...I must throw those trainers in the bin now! Personally I am glad I didn't begin the path at St Dogmaels as it follows the road for the first few ...

We assist him as he scrambles under the bottom wire - fortunately the bottom wire is not barbed. Refreshed, we set off ...
... I have to concentrate on where I am putting my feet! The hedgerows are also high in parts, temporarily blocking the view out to sea. There are honey bees buzzing furiously in the hedgerows and blackberries are ripening up nicely on the brambles. After circumnavigating the inlet at Aber Bach we have a nice even walk around the headland until we begin to drop steeply at Pwllwaelod beach. Here, Ian is waiting. And so is a delicious ice cream named 'sinful' ...
