Carew Castle and Broad Haven Pembrokeshire Holiday pt3 16th June 2014


Its a bit dull this morning, so we have decided to visit Carew Castle for a walk around the lake, before going to Broad Haven beach this afternoon when its forecast to be sunny :)



We have walked around the lake and are now passing the castle , Dogs cant be taken into the castle itself so we have to make do with this walk.


                      Chester jumped up on the wall and nearly went over the other side   haha
                                                   Jan grabbed him just in time :D


                              Its brightening up now, blue appearing in between the clouds :)


                                              A Lovely coloured fern growing in the wall.


 We have had lunch back in the caravan and have now driven down to Broad Haven , which is quite near Bosherton lily ponds which we will take a look at later this week hopefully.       Having negotiated the very narrow lanes we park up and get this first view of the beach , really beautiful and deserted!    



                                                    Straight down onto the beach



                                         Didnt take long for them to get wet did it!  lol




                                  they are having loads of fun now , great to watch :)


                                                                    A  Flying Chester



                                         Go on Mol  fetch it but watch that big wave!!!!!   Toooo Late



                                       O Dear Mol, did that wave get you???    hahahaha



              She is getting more bold now going straight out for the ball without fear, well Almost !





Time to come off the beach now , we have food in the car and then go for a walk around the headland i think.



We are now walking around the headland , a glorious evening again for a walk and the dogs will soon be dry :)


Its a stunning coastline , and we are walking through an army firing range   , good job they are not shooting :)




                                                 Beautiful Mollster with great view behind





                                                   Chester just doesn't pose like Mollster!  


                         A last pic for the day looking towards Stackpole head  in the distance .



                Tomorrow i have to get up really early as i am going to Skommer to see the Puffins :)

Pembrokeshire Holiday june 2014 PT1

Its Friday morning and Jan and i with the Terrible Twosome are on our way to Pembrokeshire for 10 days .  we are going to a caravan site not too far from Tenby. I have never been to this part of the country before and hopefully weather permitting might be able to go over to Skomer to see the Puffins.   Any how after over four and half hours drive we have arrived at the campsite and set up the caravan and the two awnings , one for the dogs :)
The weather is warm and sunny so since the dogs have been in their cages all day in the car we will take them down to the nearest beach at Penally which is part of Tenby South beach .  parking at the railway station the path goes through the sand dunes and an army rifle range , hope they don't shoot Chester  lol



 Having walked the entire length of beach we are almost in Tenby , so dogs on leads as we get near the dog ban area of the beach .   its high tide now so will be a bit more sand to play on on the way back later .


                           Heading up into the town , its really nice here in the evening sun.


Looking back at the length of beach we have just walked, and!  need to walk back  Arghhh    its been a long day and feeling a bit knackered already   Ooops lol


 We have come to the harbour , its very busy in the narrow streets , Mol is not happy in crowds :(


 After visiting a chippy we are on our way back to the beach , its a long walk back to the car :(
                                 a big cabbage palm makes it feel quite tropical here :)


             What a lovely first evening here , and the forecast is looking quite good all week :)


                                      Back to the car at last , Mollster is looking tired, Not!



 The following morning we are going shopping first for food , the Terrible twosome are waiting patiently to get going 


We are now on Freshwater East beach  , there are very few people here for a Saturday , a theme for the whole week actually.    the dogs are having a great time :)


                                   The sky is stunning blue now , and its getting very warm






                                            The sea is getting quite warm for june :)



 After walking the length of the beach and giving the  Beasts a good soaking i have noticed people walking up a path high up onto the headland, so we decide, or rather i persuade Jan that is where we should walk :)                 The path is quite easy actually and the view from up here is superb.


 We don't walk to far, Jan is tired  Lol      i walk around a bit further and take this image before turning back






 The path continues through the sand dunes nature reserve where i spot loads of marsh orchids and a load of rabbits, luckily Mol is on her lead by this point .            a final image with the flowers making a nice foreground :)



                     the end of a really nice first full day on the Pembrokeshire coast
