The full itinerary - come and give us a cheer along the way...

We've finally got all of our plans in place for the walk, and with just a few days to go before we start, we're getting everything ready for our departure. Here's the plan, and where you can come and meet us, walk with us for a bit, and sponsor us of course along the way...

Day 1 - 18th September
A very early start at St Dogmaels for our first day as we're both getting lifts to the start point from our homes (both about an hour away). We plan to start walking at about 7am and to ease us in gently we're staying at the very lovely Golden Lion in Newport this evening...please feel free to come and join us for a drink in the bar :)

Day 2 - 19th September
On as far as Goodwick today, then the Strumble Shuttle to Pwll Deri Youth Hostel where we're staying the night.

Day 3 - 20th September
Then it's back to Goodwick in the to walk around Strumble Head, past Pwll Deri again and on to Trefin where we'll be overnighting at the Old School Hostel.  We'll be met here by the lovely Jo Milborrow, Skomer Warden who will be joining us for the next few days walking...

Day 4 - 21st September
From Trefin we press on to Whitesands bay where we'll be spending the night at the Youth Hostel -although we'll probably venture into St Davids in the evening so if you're up that way look out for three weary women and come and say hello.

Day 5 - 22nd September
A lovely walk today, not too far, from Whitesands around St David's head to Solva where we'll be joined for a meal by colleagues from the Wildlife Trust as a bit of a treat. 

Day 6 - 23rd September
Staying overnight at a B&B in Solva we'll be up early to start one of the longer days where we'll head through Newgale and the Havens to St Brides.  With Skomer in sight to remind us what we're doing this all for and some spectacular scenery on the way we're both looking forward to this stretch. This will also be the first of two nights in Lucy's home village of Marloes and where we say good bye to Jo who will be heading back to her duties on Skomer.   We'll probably be in the Lobster Pot this evening...

Day 7 - 24th September
Some of the locals have promised to join us today as we walk from St Brides around the Marloes and Dale peninsulars finishing up by crossing the Gann (as the tides will be low later on in the day) before being picked up and heading back to Marloes.

Day 8 - 25th September
Today we start the 'industrial' section and walk from Monk Haven past Sandy Haven and through Milford to Neyland where we'll be met by the lovely Kiri who works for the National Park and who is putting us up for the next couple of nights.

Day 9 - 26th September
Over the bridge this morning, through industry and estuary and on to West Angle Bay before another overnighter with Kiri.

Day 10 - 27th September
From West Angle we continue through some of the most beautiful parts of the park (thankfully we've managed to miss the MOD firing which is planned through most of September) and on to Broad Haven South where we'll be spending the evening.

Day 11 - 28th September
On to the metropolis that is Tenby this morning where we'll be celebrating being 'nearly there'  with a night in a comfy B&B and perhaps venturing out into the town (depending on how our feet are doing!).

Day 12 - 29th September
Our final day will be a very reasonable 8 miles from Tenby to Amroth where we'll be celebrating with a nice cup of tea and a sit down :)
