the weather was definitely getting better so we went back to barafundle bay after crazy golfing

it’s amazing what difference a bit of sun makes.  and the coast round here is amazing

i might have boosted some of the colours on our holiday photos, but the sand really did look like this !

this was the view of the beach from the other side where a geocache was conveniently hidden

and whilst we were up there a boat parked up in the bay

there are plenty of worse places to park your boat i imagine

whilst jane and i huddled together in our warm hoodies, raincoats and boots, our girls threw off their shoes, and threw on their swimming costumes to shiver in the sea.

only in britain would you find people wearing skimpy sunbathing clothes alongside those more suitably dressed for winter wind and rain

pembroke08 day 2 was a windy day.  we went to stackpole quay and walked round to the magical barafundle beach.

to get to the beach you have to walk over the coastal path

despite the bright colours (i’ll admit i’ve souped them a bit in lightroom) it was right chilly

when you get there you have to go down a long set of steps to reach the beach, but it’s totally worth it.

this was the one day when we didn’t have my little hidey beach tent (i don’t like sand)
