Day 035 : Burry Port – Kidwelly

Today I take a circular walk through a country park overlooking Cardigan Bayb_034_116_Llanelli_AmeliaEarhart_PlaqueWalking through Burry Port I come across a blue plaque for Amelia Earhart commemorating her landing when she was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic.

I entered Pembrey Country Park which boasts of golden sands, camping and caravanning, ski slope and wildlife trails. There were many people around enjoying themselves, but as I got further into the forest towards the headland, I felt like the only person out there.b_035_135_Pembrey_SkiSlopeAs I left the forest I heard the roar of engines racing and the continue squeal of brakes. Pembrey has a motor racing circuit, now the home of Welsh Moter Racing. The noise seemed quite close, but I could not see the circuit.

I did see an airfield though, probably used for light aircraft. Maybe it is used to fly in drivers and spectators on race day.b_035_128_BurryPort_HarbourI finished my walk in Kidwelly and made my way back to the car.
