As “The Navigator” had to visit a shed maker in near Pembroke the proposed walk was also to be in Pembrokeshire near Stacpole.
We parked in a small car park in Castle Dock Wood and set off uphill on a minor road and had a coffee break in the churchyard of St Twynnells.
From there we continued westwards hoping to cut south down to the coast at Stack Rocks but it became obvious from the explosions that Castlemartin range was in full use and as we approached the range we could see moving tanks in the distance.
At the viewing area there was a leaflet about a dedicated path which skirts the range, with worrying markers in the shape of a tank!
Our route was now south easterly into the village of Bosherton. We came across a worked out quarry where we had an afternoon cuppa. I was sure that I had taught canoeing in the lake here but today there was little water.
From the village of Bosherton we headed north along side the Lily Ponds back to the car.
As we walked along there were a number of sightings of herons who seemed to take little interest in us.
