The “Navigator” gave me a limited choice for today’s walk, Laugharne or Pendine, I chose the latter. The forecast looked a little marginal with rain forecast to 0900 then dull with rain again at 1600.
Chris phoned at 0730 with rain pouring down but I gave him short shrift and said the walk was on, especially as I had just made my sandwiches.
We had a full house today including the lovely laid back Daisy and we left for Pendine and found some free parking and set off uphill heading north west and away from the coast.
Route ( the gubbins failed to record a short part back down to Pendine)
The route took us towards and onto Marros Mountain and then south down to the coast at Telpyn Point.
We descended to Marros Sands where we spotted our first naturists of the season. We averted our gaze and walked down towards the sea to look for evidence of the petrified forest
Our way forward was now a long slog upwards followed by a steep descent and another steep uphill climb before the never ending Pendine Sands came into view.
As forecast, the rain did make some attempt but was just enough to cool us down as we climbed the aforementioned hill but soon petered out. Back in Carmarthen we heard later that there had been thunder and a huge downpour. Luckily for us the Devil looks after us!
