2023 Q2 Workcation/Wales Hike

I had the extreme pleasure of joining my friend Jim on a hike in honor of his late wife, Ann, on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path in Wales. We hiked through rain, sun, and fog. We saw rabbits, horses, sheep, and cows. We met a ton of wonderful hikers along the way. The path is 186 miles and Jim was doing the whole thing in 14 days. I joined for the first 27 miles from Amroth to Manobier and then to Bosherston. It was absolutely stunning and I cannot wait to go back to do more hiking along the coast of the U.K. When someone presents an opportunity to do something new and different, just say “yes”. It is almost always worth it and you will learn so much about yourself along the way. Below are some of my favorite photos from the hike.

Day 1 of the hike with Jim and David. We stayed in Tenby, Wales and took a taxi to the start of the coastal path in Amroth.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path goes all along the coast. It can be a tad scary in places where you walk very close to the edge of the coastal cliffs. The water was beautiful and the breeze made for a pleasant hike, despite some rain and fog.

The Welsh horses were absolutely my favorite. They are certainly used to hikers crossing their pastures.

It got a little steep along the way… In the fog, you definitely had to “mind the gap”.

Every corner we stopped and took it all in. We even had lunch overlooking a beach and the cliffs.

Every day, we finished the hike with a well-deserved pint. A big shoutout to Jim and David for sharing stories, memories of Ann, and photos along the way. Certainly, a record-book trip!
