On the last leg of our Pembrokeshire hike, we enjoy beautiful sunny weather. Low tide in the middle of the day reveals stunningly beautiful beaches.
St. Davids is the birthplace of the patron saint of Wales. Using this historical town as a base, we do several day hikes along the coastal path. Along one of the hikes, a robin lands right in front of me and allows me to photograph it.
On the first day of our Pembrokeshire coastal hike, we get blown off-course by a wicked storm, and our luggage fails to show up at our accommodations. The following days brought better hiking conditions. From the coastal path we watch a ferry coming from Ireland pull into port.
On the final leg of our West Coast Trail hike we climb ladders, we cross gullies on slippery logs, and we cross canyons by riding cablecars and by going across suspension bridges.
On the second leg of our West Coast Trail hike, we feast on freshly caught crab at Nitnat Narrows, and we celebrate our wedding anniversary with a wonderful beach hike in great weather.
On days one and two of our West Coast trail hike, we walk through rainforest with huge trees and along wave-beaten beaches. I fling Diana’s boot into the Klawana River.
On the third leg of our Jurassic Coast journey we get soaked in a sudden thunderstorm, we tour the local pubs of Abbotsbury with the town drunk in search of cash, and we watch a lightbulb explode violently in a haunted pub.
In the second part of our Jurassic Coast hike, we walk through a lush jungle, explore paleontology in Lyme Regis, and we get lost in the fog and end up at a tea room near West Bay.
In part 1 of our Jurassic Coast hike, we walk along cliffs of bright red Triassic sandstone. We stay at a posh Christian retreat, where we secretly pour ourselves a gin-and-tonic for happy hour.
My friend Darren and I hiked the Iceline Trail on a sunny September day.
