I had a busy weekend this weekend. On Friday I made the decision to hike Pen Y Fan for sunrise Saturday Morning. This involved leaving the house at 2am and arriving at the Storey Arms car park just after 3am and hiking up to the highest summit in South Wales in time for sunrise at 5:15am. I made it to the top ridge around 4am and sheltered from the wind while enjoying a cup of tea. While waiting for it to get a bit lighter, I noticed that I wasn’t alone and seen a dozen pairs of eyes watching me. It seems I had found a flock of sheep also sheltering from the wind.
Saturday was forecast as a good day to get out and enjoy the weather so I took Bug to Newport Bay in Pembrokeshire to walk a section of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. I parked in the Long Street car park and walked westward along the coast. I went in the afternoon and the light wasn’t the best for taking photos, but the weather was nice and warm for a good walk. There were plenty of people out and about in Newport and Bug luckily ignored most of them and their dogs. We walked and walked and eventually stumbled across a secluded beach with only two other people on it. I let Bug off the lead for a quick paddle then put him back on the lead while I had a snack. I didn’t want Bug pestering the old couple, or splashing them with water! After my snack Bug was back in the water fetching stones I had thrown for him. The water in Newport must be special because the rocks Bug brought back to me were always bigger than the last stone I threw!
The walk must have been a bit much for Bug as he’s spent pretty much all day sleeping 🙂
