Llanfynydd and the Cothi Valley

With “The Navigator” whale watching in the Azores it was left to Alan Richards, well, a walk from his book, to guide us on a walk in the Llanfynydd area of Carmarthenshire.


Paul and I were joined by a new retiree, Chris and his dog Daisy the latter who behaved impeccably, and the former who is still in need of training.

Despite remembering to recharge my camera it spent all day on the Welsh dresser at home.  So any photos which may appear below are through the kindness of Chris and Paul.

The route gave some excellent views of the Cothi Valley and in the far distance we could make out Carmarthen Fans and further still Pen y Fan and Corn Ddu.

Under foot the going was quite muddy in places, with one path described by Mr Richards as also being a waterway, he was not wrong.
