Almost 80 miles. I could have done more.

GWAUN VALLEY

(viewed 1106 times)
And the famous ?Bessie?s? pub, The Dyffryn Arms, where your ale comes in a
jug (we didn?t partake, alas). Here we parted company. Jon headed back to
Pembroke, Bob to Fishguard, Steve and I climbed the 1:4 over the mountain to
his house at Dinas Cross. This one did for me. 3/4 of the way up, my sciatic
nerve was screaming at me.

Looking back over Cardigan after lunch, and later, overlooking Newport Bay.

PRESELIS

(viewed 447 times)
Mynachlogddu. This is where the bluestones which make up Stonehenge
originated. One local theory is a glacier took them and dumped them on
Salisbury Plain. Wouldn?t it be wonderful if the stones just happened to
land in the form we know as Stonehenge? Steve managed to sucker Jon into
walking over to read the sign by the standing stone, telling him it is
extremely old and sacred. It was actually brought down from the top by
Chinook Helicopter in 1989.

FIRST STOP

(viewed 360 times)
From Fishguard, a LONG climb up into the Preselis. The view was worth it. My
travelling companions are Steve, Jon and Bob.

A40

(viewed 349 times)
Nothing to see here. Took the main trunk road from Haverfordwest to
Fishguard, very boring, but very quick. I arrived in Fishguard with plenty
of time for a Full English followed by a coffee and a chat with the owner of
Pembrokeshire?s newest bike shop. I couldn?t blog live, because there?s
hardly anywhere in the Preselis to get a mobile signal. Also, we were moving
far too fast for that kind of thing.
