April 4th: Allt-y-Goed Pembs. to Gwbert, Ceredigion

‘Old’ [in the best sense of the word] college friends, Geoff and Nora, took us to Allt-y-Goed where we started our walk under a rather threatening sky. The walk took us down narrow country lanes past old cottages and farmhouses to Poppit Sands where we walked a slightly wider road to St. Dogmaels. The coastal path took us past St Dogmaels church and the remains of the old abbey. The work that has been done on the site is outstanding. We had a quick word with Kevin who was repairing a wall. We also had a coffee in a nearby building where some of the archeological finds are displayed as well as local art and crafts. We have found people in Wales to be so friendly and Becky and Margaret were no exception.  Our walk continued through fields which led us down to Cardigan and across the Teifi river. Cardigan was a port from which many Welsh people sailed to the USA and Canada. We headed towards Gwbert through fields which overlooked the Teifi estuary which was dotted with clusters of boats. Across from Gwbert, Poppit Sands seemed a skip and a jump away rather than the 8 mile distance we had walked. A very good day!1 1a 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 12a 13 14 15 15a 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32

    What a lovely estuary walk you’ve enjoyed today, and summer is coming when fields are being chain harrowed.
    I have many memories of holidays on both sides of the “Teifi” but one very frightening experience. When a teenager (a long time ago)
    I was staying in a tent in Poppit Sands when with some other boys decided to show off to the girls and go swimming in the river about 1.00am in the dark, lost sight of the shore and our bearings. Managed not to panic, and did get back, but only just. I never did it again???
    All the Best. David & Diane.
