It was decided to do the most strenuous walk on Saturday in reverse, ie back to the hotel, and the shorter walk also ending at the hotel on Sunday.
Parrog to Goodwick: 13.0 miles (21.0km) +575m -488m (14 September 2014)
From the Fishguard Bay Hotel in Goodwick the bus took us to Parrog near Newport. This walk was extremely strenuous with many ups and downs and a long detour around around Dinas Island (although it’s not) but the views were stunning when we got to Dinads Head. Some of the party decided not to take this option and cut straight across. The Wales Coast Path allows both routes.
We arrived back at the hotel at about 5pm very tired and looking forward to a long soak.
Garn Fawr to Goodwick: 8.7 miles (14.0km) +514m -515m (15 September 2014)
On Sunday the bus took us to western side of Garn Fawr so we didn’t have to start with the difficult climb we finished with last May.
Although shorter than Saturday it was equally demanding as we walked over Strumble Head past the lighthouse. We were all very pleased when we finally got back to the hotel, very tired and ready for a rest.
Total for the Weekend: 21.7 miles
Total around Wales: 318.8 miles
