March 29th: St Govan’s Chapel to Broomhill Burrows

Kudos to BBC weather! So far, they have been very accurate with their 17forecasting. Today for example they forecasted rain for Pembroke until 10am or so and by 10:30 it was indeed over! We were able to walk through the Castlemartin military range as Pete ‘the Birdman’ had told us. The cliff scenery between Huntsman’s Leap [google the story!] and the Elegug Stacks within the range was fantastic and somewhat frightening. The photos don’t do the scale of the sheer drops and ‘sinkholes’ justice. We saw a variety of birds including cormorants, gannets and even puffins [confirmed by another hiker in the area]. As we left the coastal military range we passed the Kings Royal Hussars tank regiment with engines running. Once again we met interesting and friendly people including Shaun, Martin, Andrew and Ray near the Elegug Stacks. Later, we found a wonderful ‘nonprofit’ café in Castlemartin where we were happy to stop and meet James [the manager], Wendy and Rhiannon. The stew was excellent and prices reasonable. As we left the café we were joined by Rodney from Velindre, Cards, who has been walking the paths of Cardiganshire and Pembs.
