The Pembrokeshire Coastline

I was completely taken aback with the raw beauty of the Welsh coastline, having only been to Cardiff for work Wales was a revelation to me. I'm a bit of a beach addict, which harks back to my childhood and spending the whole six week holiday mucking about with the family in Portugal. My parents live a fifteen minute drive from the coast making it easily accessible and where we spent entire days running into waves, building huge sandcastles and eating picnics under the shade of a parasol.

So imagine my utter delight at seeing the immense sandy beaches of Wales. Not having explored British beaches apart from Brighton until the last few years, I've since discovered the Norfolk coast which I love. I adored the enormity of the Welsh landscape, the endless sandy shores that evoked memories of my beloved Portuguese beaches. Just a shame the temperature was slightly lower! That didn't seem to deter the Welsh from stripping off and jumping in the sea, having said that Matilda and the husband were brave enough to go splashing around. I, on the other hand, preferred to watch, whilst the only thing my toes dipped into was my new book!

Needless to say I took hundreds of photos but here is Part one of my favourites taken at Newgale, Saundersfoot and Whitesands:
