Pembrokeshire - a short bike ride and Carn Penberry.

After picking up Eilidh from Baden-Baden and returning from our European trip, we had a few days at home before meeting the rest of the family near St Davids in Pembrokeshire. Most of the week was spent socialising, with a huge family meal at the Cwtch in St Davids one evening, and various social meals with some or all of them during the rest of the week.
Some of the teenagers went coasteering, the younger ones went horse-riding at Nolton Stables and along the beach, and a lot of time was spent in or near the sea. Wetsuits, dinghies and bodyboards all played their part. 

Most of the family were on the camp site at Pencarnan.  Esther and family were at Ynys Barry Cottages near Porthgain, and we were a short distance away at a cottage on Treleidr farm. 

We had a short bike ride to Esther's cottage, and met some of the others for time on the beach.
5.5 miles each way, along a pretty quiet road.

One afternoon we climbed Carn Penberry, a bit of an ordeal with gorse and uneven paths.
