Visiting Pembrokeshire (South Wales)

Saturday, 3 September 2011


My hubby had to go away for a couple of days for work to Pembrokeshire in Wales and asked me to go with him. It was over five hours of a drive which was what was holding me back at first but I was soon convinced; it meant spending time with my hubby and we hadn't been able to do that recently.

I was awed by the beauty of this place! I have been to a few different places in the UK, many of which were very beautiful but this was something else! I think it was the combination of the attitude of the people living there and the gorgeous surroundings. It is a very popular county in South Wales. The area I was in didn't have many shopping places, the town centre consisted of just a few shops on a small-ish street! But then, this place isn't famous for its' shopping, it is well known for its' beauty. I spent the first day just exploring a little bit and visited the dock. I guess I will just let the pictures do the talking; the scenery is breathtaking! 

In the evening we decided to venture out again and saw the sunset in, which was even more beautiful. I think I was most impressed by it because in London or Sheffield, I hadn't been in such picturesque surroundings. 

In the last picture, that is actually a person swimming in (pretty much) the middle of nowhere. I have no idea what he was doing but I was a little surprised to see him!

I had a chat with a few people (one in ASDA of all places!) and was surprised at the friendliness of everyone! The community there is so open and welcoming. A 20 year old girl approached me as we were looking at the boats and started talking to me about fishing, not that I had a clue. I found it so odd, but it was lovely to know that there are places in the UK where people still treat each other with respect and make conversation just for the hell of it!

All in all, I love this little place. I felt like I was on a much needed mini holiday and I know that if the opportunity ever arises, I will definitely be revisting!
