day 1 | 2 | three | Four

Day 1 had gone completely.

Day 2 can be problematic. I may hike in the other way from the hostel … but it surely was unlikely I’d discover a bus to get me again.

In the long run I made a decision to take an opportunity. If I couldn’t discover a bus, I’d backtrack the best way I got here. My turnaround time can be 3pm.

Instantly the surroundings was extra dramatic than something I’d seen to date. BIG cliffs.

This rugged, distant space is used for navy coaching. At one level I used to be compelled to stroll round a coaching camp.

Most of my day was strolling excessive cliffs.

The few coves had stairs. Most of them, in any case.

You possibly can see how the earth was flipped 90 levels sooner or later in geological historical past.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path (opened 1970) is a part of the longer Wales Coast Path. Many of those trails have a number of logos.

Although I’d been staying on the the Manorbier Youth Hostel (in Skrinkle), I lastly made it to the village of Manorbier.

I’d been trying ahead to see the fairly intact Manorbier Fort. It’s privately owned now, however public should purchase tea and entry.

Throughout the best way is the 12th century Norman Church.

Extra attention-grabbing to me was an historic dovecote. This was house to about 250 birds. Doves and pigeons laid 2 eggs about six instances a yr. Squabs (Four-6 weeks) had been an essential meals supply as had been the eggs.

I carried on. It was hazy all day, however didn’t rain.

I noticed many hikers.

Lastly. Clearwater East Seaside. It was right here I hoped to discover a bus.

I walked the sand dunes to city.

Dangerous information. The chap within the ice-cream truck instructed me buses after Oct 1st solely run as soon as a day every approach. The bus I wanted had previous about 2 hours earlier.

I ended my mountain climbing day right here. Had a chew to eat on the solely pub on the town. And retraced my steps, working many of the flat sections.

It was nonetheless a terrific mountain climbing day.
