Strumbling about the north Pembrokeshire coast

50 months ago
Ynys Onnen and Ynys Meicel, Strumble Head
There were some doubts about the weather prospects for this bank holiday Saturday, but the Met Office produced excellent advice: go south rather than north, and stick to the coast, so Strumble Head it was. Despite the bank holiday, there was still plenty of parking space by the lighthouse when we arrived, and the weather was glorious. The route followed all the narrow inlets of Pembrokeshire's fractal coast Photo Photo, but we turned inland Photo at Carregwastad Point...

Across the Cairnsmore of Fleet National Nature Reserve
Ever since seeing them from the ridge during a cold February walk with a friend on Cairnsmore of Fleet in 2009 Photo, a group of 8 unGeographed squares in the valleys to the east had been winking at me. Id rather assumed (wrongly) that they must have been protected by some sort of access restrictions into the National Nature Reserve, but a call to the warden at the Dromore Visitor Centre confirmed that those sorts of archaic conditions genuinely only affect us poor souls in England...
