The community cafe in Tre’rddôl is open this time, as we start our short walk to join a few dots left hanging from last time we were here in August 2019. A lot has happened since then…….
Leaving the car in the carpark we turn left up the main road until we reach a Wales Coast Path sign pointing right up a minor road and then a path through woods and open fields. The terrain is flat and the sun is shining – it’s a good start to our 5 days planned walking in what we think will be mostly in the rain.
After a mile or two the landscape to the right of us opens up to an extensive peat bog know as Cross Fochno, which is apparently one of the largest and finest remaining raised peat bogs in Britain. The bog, known as Borth Bog by the locals, forms part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve.
At one point our path intersects with another trail starting in Borth and ending at Devils Bridge.

I know I have been there because it is spectacular, but can’t for the life of me remember with whom or when – maybe on a school trip. Anyway, it’s not for us today.
Soon we begin to see the the very long row of houses that lines Borth seafront – it’s what I remember from childhood holidays, along with the stoney beach. We cross the railway line, up a side street and here we are.
To watch the sun go down with a pint of lager.
