Aberaeron to Llanrhystud 7.0 miles (11.3km) +181m -166m (13 May 2016)
I had obtained permission to park at the Llanrhystud Memorial Hall car park. From Llanrhysted the mini-bus took us to Aberaeron where we started last month. This time we were going to head north.
To begin with the path out of Aberaeron was flat and took us through Aberarth where we had a coffee stop.
During our coffee break someone asked how many kilometers we had walked. I did a quick calculation and concluded that in 350 meters we would have walked 1000 km. After our break I paced out 350 steps and declared that we had now walked 1000 km. Of course this is what I have walked and includes a little diversion at Chirk Castle and other deviations that others may not have walked. Anyway, it was a nice landmark to cross with only 663 km to go.
Just south of Llanon we had to walk along a rather uncomfortable mile of shingle beach but we came to a metal stair which took us to the top of the very eroded cliff and it was here that we had lunch.
We then walked through the small village of Llansantffraed and its amazing church which we took some time out to look round.
From here there was more cliff walking until we came to a series of Lime kilns on the edge of the beach.
A little further on we met a road which took us back into Llanrhystud.
Today was my 67th birthday, and for the second time Dorothy had bought me a cake, the last time was in 2009.
See 15-17 May 2009. We all had a slice with tea and coffee which made a nice end to the day.
