Today’s walk is a completely different environment to what has gone before. It’s a trip through woods, forests, glens and waterfalls.
I love the smell of wet woodlands. The wild garlic and the sweet carpet of pine needles. The trees sway and rustle as the bright gentle breeze blows up from the valley below.
I start today with a walk around the town of Aberystwyth, First I take a look at the castle ruins and the Edwardian and Victorian houses along the harbour and sea front. It is a popular seaside resort with a grand pier and a cliff railway.
I walk up the Constitution hill by the cliff railway where you get a superb view back of Aberystwyth. The railway is supposed to be the longest in Britain. It also looks quite steep.
I walk from the village of Aberaeron with its small harbour to the university town of Aberystwyth.
I soon pass through the village of Aberarth. In victorian times it was a popular place for retired sea captains. I cross the bridge by the church and back out along the coast
I continue back on my walking challenge after a short return home to cast my vote in the general election.
My walk today is along the Ceredigion coastline between two Aber’s with some pretty places inbetween.
I start the day with a pleasant walk around Cardigan with its castle, shopping centre and market.
It’s a bit of a walk along the estuary with views across to Poppit Sands towards Gwbert. I skirt around the headland before reaching the coast again opposite Cardigan Island.
