A Climb, a Walk and a Swing down Hazelbeach #CountryKids

After a morning at Withybush Woods, Dave wasn't ready to go home yet and suggested we go for a walk along Hazelbeach.  We came here recently when Danny was taking part in a Regatta but  we only stayed on the main beach.

Dave insists that we have done this walk before but I really can't remember it!  I think he must have brought his "other secret family" here and got mixed up!  The benefits of blogging are I will not forget about our recent visit!

Straight out of the car and the kids were climbing a tree!  Next to the carpark are toilets and a pub, The Ferry House Inn, very convenient!

I think Dave was determined to wear the kids (and me!) out by taking us on an uphill walk.

The main path along the walk is nice and safe with lovely coastal views.  We spotted a few rabbits along the way, much to the kids delight.

After a busy morning and a couple of hills Danny needed a rest so hitched a ride in Izzy's buggy.

There are plenty of benches to stop and rest or put your shoes back on too!

She put her shoe back on and it still wasn't comfortable so Danny helped her.

It looked lovely out on the waterway.

Danny, Izzy and I were really far behind the others and the pushchair!  Danny tried to give Izzy a piggy back to speed her up.

He was still too tired however and kept needing rest stops.

So I had to do piggy back duties and catch up with the rest of the crew.

What are they looking up at?

On the way to the beach we spotted a rope bridge, a perfect way to get the kids off the beach when it's time to go!

At last we were on the beach for a play (everyone) and a rest (for me!).

Dave and the kids had fun going through a tunnel from the top path onto the beach.

Pebble Shaker Hazelbeach, Pembrokeshire, Wales, walk, coastal path, beach, country kids

I finished my water bottle and Izzy started to fill it with pebbles to make a shaker.

Time to make music with her pebble shaker!

I was treated to lots of delights from the Shell Cafe, cups of tea, soup, cakes.  Lovely, thanks kids!

No one has spotted me about to climb up these rocks...

We had fun on the rope swing (ok I screamed to get off as soon as I could hear the branch creaking!).

Then time to walk home.  As most of the way there had seemed to be uphill, I expected most of the way back to be downhill, but no, there was still a fair bit of uphill!

Poor tired children having a rest again!

There are also plenty of blackberries and sloes to pick on this walk.   I normally just pass on sloes but may pick some next time and make Sloe Gin.  I have no idea if I will like it or not but it could be fun!
