This walk was oh so long ago during the tentative re-opening after the first wave of COVID. We all thought that was it but how wrong we were.
Anyway, finally got round to writing this in the hope that I may be able to head west to the Welsh coast soooooooon.
Heading out east from a sleepy Cwm yr Eglwys we arrive at a pretty little beach where a family are busy preparing to set out in kayaks.
And as I can’t remember much from this walk (it was 10 months ago), all I can say is that we follow the cliff up high and then dip down twice to two inlets Aber Forest and Aber Rhigian.
Damian poses for a pic on a wooden bridge at the first inlet …….
And as we get closer to a village called Parrog we walk across another – quite unusual bridge.
Just before walking down into Newport Sands we walk past a series of jagged rocks which a gang of young people are enthusiastically using as diving/jumping rocks. It looks a bit dangerous but one would have to assume they know the terrain and what lurks where under the surface of the water. Damian indulges in a bit of mansplaining.
Down we go, following the path alongside the estuary……………………………………………..
Walking into Newport Sands I hear the sound of sobbing coming from a young boy who is being led out of the water. I have no idea what was happening before this but all the children look pretty cold.
This has been a short walk because we are due to drive back to London today. Little did we know that it would be a VERY LONG TIME before we could even think of coming back.
Distance: 3 miles
