Circling Porthclais

Wednesday was a spectacular day. The weather was warm and sunny and a gentle sea breeze ruffled the heather.  The Porthclais hike began and ended at the Porthclais Harbor where we left our car.  It followed the coast along the tip of the St David's peninsula. 

It seemed like everyone was out enjoying the spectacular weather.

In addition to a number of other hikers we saw young men cliff jumping,
kayakers, sailors, geese, songbirds, seabirds, beetles, lots of sheep and even one seal. Heather was blooming along with many other wildflowers. 

The hike took us along high cliffs where we watched our footing carefully.

At one point we could look back over the fields and see the town of St. David's with its square tower. 

It was a full six miles long and we were exhausted by the end. The guide suggested three hours for the hike, but we took a full six hours. Photography, snacks and rest stops kept our pace slow. But it was so beautiful we didn't mind.
