Stayed at New Quay Beach

The beach at New Quay is a half a mile walk away and is beautiful, my favourite beach so far. I managed to go for a swim in the sea this week, the sun was out and the sea not too cold. This was through sheer determination, being prepared and concurring my fear - loved it. Beach is about a mile long to walk each way.

Site news: Six campers taken half a day to take an awning down as high winds were expected, too many cooks, but funny to watch, the high winds have not materialised and I will not be around to see the next performance of putting up the awning (gazebo tent thingy) - so funny.

Went to a Nation Trust place on the way down: Llanerchaeron, which has a working farm, gardens, lake, woodland walks and a house - exit through the gift shop. There is a cycle route on an old railway line close by. I bought produce - coquettes, beans of some sort and apples from two hundred year trees.

Met a lovely couple in a church, he was a championship gardener, been on the telly and she was a writer - they have invited me for tea when I am in the Scottish Boarders, how lovely.

Next Kidwelly Quay, free to park up for the night, lovely bird and sand flats reserve, but did not stay as a bit remote. So moved onto the Breacon Beacons away from the coast. Spectacular scenery and drive over the Beacons really outstanding and very high - great views, did not stop to take photos sorry. I did stop at a waterfall - Henrhyd Falls which drops 90 feet - there is a photo of this.

Next onto Blackmill, Bridgend at a visit to Auntie Linda and Uncle Alan for a chat with some non virtual people - Lovely.

Very wind and rainy so delaying crossing the Estuary Bridge into Bristol until the wind dies down a bit.
