Friday started cool and a bit overcast, then turned bright and sunny around mid-day. It was perfect weather to walk the coast from Broad Haven to Newgale.
Note the tankers lurking offshore. They are bound for Milford Haven harbor, and have been sitting there since we arrived 3 days ago. We’re told that ships often sit just outside the harbor for days while their owners play the oil market: when the price is right, they steam into Milford Haven to unload; if the price goes up somewhere else, they steam away there. Lurking here lets them avoid Milford Haven’s harbor fees. Who knew?
Druidston Haven. The route took us near enough to Malador (known locally as The Telletubbies House) to get a closish look. Fascinating architecture. Looks to me like a modern Hobbit house.
The path was easy with some gentle rises coming out of Broad Haven. The route got upsy-downsy past Druidston, with some very steep bits.
Nolton Haven, which hosts a largish holiday park.
The local trail cat calls the Nolton Haven pub home, but spends its days accompanying ramblers. The humans were nonplussed, bu the cat wasn’t bothered.
Newgale’s “hale-and-ride” bus stop is conveniently located at the local pub.
We enjoyed a fine dinner at Broad Haven’s Sunshine Italian, with its very fine view of the setting sun.

I love the idea of having a fixed location from which to take photos. And the hobbit house is cool, too.
Is Welsh as hard on the ears as it is on the eyes?
