Pembrokeshire Coast…

I've had this post in my head for about a week and finally got a short moment at the computer to share with you some of the wonderful scenes from our one week holiday on the Pembrokeshire Coast. 

We were very lucky with the good weather and it made it easy to keep busy in the great outdoors.  Our first day we walked from the campsite just outside St. David’s to the coastal path and were greeted with stunning scenes of the coast line.

During our week we visited Cardigan, home of the giant cardigan..but also home to my ancestors that travelled to New Brunswick in 1819 to build and settle Cardigan in Canada.  It was lovely to visit and take in the little shops along the high street.  We found a wonderful used book shop which had a great selection of books.  Not one of us left empty handed!

Another day took us to the seaside retreat of Porthgain.  This turned out to be a highlight of the week with a beautiful clear views out to sea.  We sat by the factory ruins and enjoyed a picnic lunch without a care in the world.

There was an art gallery there too, but unfortunately it was closed, but this Celtic piece sat outside and caught my eye…wouldn’t that Celtic design be fantastic in fabric!

The rest of the time we took to the beaches.  Broad Haven was my favourite of the three we visited with beach as far as the eye could see. 

I took my campervan bag where ever I went and even had a lady chase me down to compliment me on it…that was a treat!  I’ll have it with me tomorrow (Thursday) at the NEC for the Festival of Quilts so if you spy it, don’t be shy and come over and say hello :o)

Until next time...♥

Your photographs are beautiful Jane. Looks like gorgeous weather. Now wonder you're tanned! Can you swim in the sea there or is the water too cold?
