Pembrokeshire Coast Path – Day 6 

Date – 18 April 2017

Walked from – Marloes 

Walked to – Newgale

Distance walked – 16.5 miles

It’s been a good day – the universe must have heard my sulking yesterday and decided to issue a correction. 
The sun finally came out this morning (didn’t last all day but it made everything so pretty while it was visiting). I was mid-hot chocolate mid-morning break – a good thing in itself – when the news came in about a snap general election (if Parliament agrees to it tomorrow), which is very interesting, if scary. A very good friend I’ve known for 23 years and haven’t seen in four called to let me know he would be joining me on Thursday evening for a day and a half of the Coastal Path. I finally had my ‘easy walk’ – 16.5 miles when I was expecting 19.5 miles – and finished by 2.30pm. And when I got to my room behind the pub in Newgale (amazing beach there BTW, which I think the photo below makes clear), it had an en-suite bathroom. With an actual bath, and piping hot water. Essentially, today has catapulted itself into the all time top ten of walking days.

About silkakt

I love to explore countries on foot or by bicycle. An English woman, I moved to the south of Spain in September 2020 and I have dreams of encouraging more people to discover this amazing country by walking its various Camino routes. To date, I've walked the French Camino from St Jean in France, the Portuguese Camino from Lisbon (interior route, not coastal) and the Camino Primitivo from Oviedo. I have also walked a fair few long distance trails in the UK, including all of the National Trails in England and Wales, and a couple of long walks in beautiful Scotland.
