St Brides Bay 8/9 August 09

The motorhome is up and running again so we did not much of an excuse to head off in it. So when I got an invite to paddle part of the Pembrokeshire coast around St Brides Bay we were off like a shot.

We stayed on a campsite just outside Little Haven. It is an old market garden nursery/small holding, all the polytunnels have gone and each pitch is divided from the next by a big escallonia hedge which makes them all them very private, we loved it.

I was spoilt and managed to get in two paddles instead of the planned one.

First, on the Saturday we headed out of Martins Haven and this time turned right, away from Skomer.

The divers were out in force, most diving from boats along the coastline.

We did not land at Marloes beach, a young girl had been stung my a jelly fish there earlier in the week.

The coastline does not have really large cliffs but the rock formations are very interesting.

I took a few pictures before the battery went on the camera. Phil has taken quite a few on his camera so I will have to finish this once he sends them on to me.

We handrailed the coast and popped into St. Brides for a food stop and to look at the old church.

From St Brides we paddled out to Stack rocks.

The wind and tide were in sync for once and it was not before we arrived at Little Haven.
