The Itinerary Days 5 - 9

The rest of the itinerary has started to come together now - just need to finalise a few overnight stays...

Brilliant news also that Skomer Warden Jo is hoping to join us for a day or two of our journey :)

So here's the plan for days 5-9:

Day 5 Whitesands - Solva (13.5 miles)

Around St David's head and down to Solva where we'll be meeting up with staff and volunteers from Lockley Lodge and the Welsh Wildlife Centre for some moral support (and a few drinks!).  Jo should hopefully be joining us today and walking towards home on Skomer with us tomorrow.

Day 6 Solva - St Brides (18 miles)

A long day down through St Bride's bay but past the beautiful beaches at Newgale and the Havens. Likely to feel like the home stretch for Lucy (no such luck!) - who will be looking forward to a night or two in her own bed in Marloes!  We're planning to leave the coastal path at St Brides and take the short walk across the fields to Marloes where we'll spend the night.

Day 7 St Brides - The Gann (18ish miles)

Back to St Brides this morning for a very familiar walk around the Marloes and Dale peninsulas, looking out towards Skomer and passing Lockley Lodge as we head around the point then onwards to West Dale, St Ann's Head and back round to Dale village.  As the tides will be low in the afternoon we're going to press on from Dale and cross the Crab Bridge at The Gann while it's accessible and finishing up at Monk Haven.

Day 8 Monk Haven - Cleddau Bridge (16ish miles)

Starting at Monk Haven this morning we'll pass Sandy Haven and on to the most industrialised part of our walk past Gelliswick and through Milford Haven.  Onwards then to Neyland and the Bridge.  Staying the night in Neyland (thanks to Kiri from the PCNPA!).
Day 9 Neyland - West Angle Bay (16 miles)

After crossing the bridge we'll head through Pembroke Dock and around as far as West Angle Bay today, spending the night in Angle before heading on to some of the most beautiful sections of the path in South Pembs...

The final few days to follow...
