Both the “Navigator” and myself are now back from our respective holidays and it was time to venture forth again. We still had bad memories of our last walk which was a mud and bramble fest, not to mention the incident with my camera! Hopefully this walk would be less horrendous.
We parked up at Patch which is on the north side of the Teifi estuary and headed north across fields (just a little muddy) and quiet lanes to Mwnt.

This can be a good spot to see dolphins but they stayed hidden today nor did the the rough sea help.
We joined the coast path here and headed back to the car.
When the Welsh coast path was opened there was unfortunately a dispute with one landowner and the area immediately overlooking Cardigan Island is off limits. You can of course pay a fee to visit the Farm Park.
The “Navigator” had been studying the weather forecast for our Monday walk and it seemed that if we headed for Aberaeron and walked to Llanon we may be lucky and indeed we were.
We parked on the south side of Aberaeron harbour with nearly all the boats parked up on dry land for the winter, clearly fair weather sailors.
Many of the houses in the town are brightly painted which was a contrast to the cloudy day, albeit the views towards the Lleyn were reasonably clear.
This part of the coast was new to me although I have often driven past it.
Our plan was to walk to Llanon and make use of our bus passes back to the car hopefully missing the rain which was due to arrive about 1400.

A lot of the path was muddy made worse by sharing it with cattle.
As we entered Llanon a bus arrived full of old folk just like us.
