    Castle & Cake perfection.

    August 18, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌬 16 °C

    What to do - dodgy forecast & a day to kill. Initial plans of going to Barafundel Bay seemed wildly optimistic especially when once we'd finished packing & headed off we were rewarded with rain. On the hoof planning opted for the fall back option of Pembroke Castle - surely a good option in the rain. Directions plugged into the phone & we set off. 5 or so miles from Pembroke, we were greeted with signs indicating the bridge across was a toll. Contemplated whether to stick with the plan or just head off. Parked up & realised that heading off from here would basically mean going back the way we came & starting the journey again. The toll was only 75p so we pushed on. So glad we did. Parking was cheap, castle was cheap (certainly compared to Warwick - seriously £27) We tagged onto a guided group which in terms of entertainment & knowledge was superb. The guide, Gareth, was a retired history teacher & he ckearly loved his new job. In terms of staying dry it wasn't so good but it was worth it to find out all the ingenious ways there were for killing people - kids must love this guy. The 75 min tour lasted 95 mins & we could've listened to his stories far longer. Had a little explore of some of the unique features on our own & then set off in search of food. Didn't have to look far - the cake shop was a suitable candidate. Never have I seen so many cake options. Both had soup to leave space, but hearty doesn't begin to describe the offerings so take away cake it had to be (ginger & lime drizzle; blackberry & apple) Back to the car to head off to Newport. Checked in & a slightly less successful tea for Liz - the burger was just too big for her tiny mouth. Major frustration. At least there was some tasty cake to look forward to.Read more

    Day 6 - The walk that never was

    January 15, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 39 °F

    We had planned to walk around the lakes at Bosherston but unfortunately they were flooded and so all the bridges were underwater. Instead we ate at the St Govan's Inn and then drove to Pembroke to walk around the Mill Pond below the castle. To end the day we played another visit to Manorbier.

    Near Pembroke

    February 5, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 3 °C

    Workshop tomorrow is right in the centre of Pembroke with no overnight parking for the van, so after checking out the location, have found a spot out of town to park up.

    Update... Birds chirping! Owls hooting! Everything!
