Manorbier Castle, Church and Beach

Manorbier Church Pembrokeshire


Last week, Danny went to Shrinkle Haven to take part in the World Scouting Jota Joti 2014.  This stands for Jamboree on the air and Jamboree on the Internet.  He had the opportunity to communicate with Scouts Worldwide and was only slightly disappointed that his half- term of French lessons meant that he wasn't quite fluent enough to have a fluid conversation with his new French Scout friends that he met online!

While he was there we went to explore nearby Manorbier.

Manorbier by Diary of the Evans-Crittens

There is a good sized carpark, for which there is a charge during the months of March to November.  The carpark is perfectly situated for a full day at Manorbier, but sadly on this occasion we only had a couple of hours to spare before picking Danny up again.  When facing the beach from the car park, to your left you can see Manorbier Church.  It is quite a steep walk to the church but well worth visiting- it is so pretty and the views from there are stunning.  To your right is Manorbier Castle.  I can't wait to visit both of these places again soon.  There are also well maintained toilets in the carpark and an information point.

We decided to walk forwards towards the beach.  It was so windy!  Izzy was almost walking backwards, bless her!  Watch the video at the bottom of the post to get an idea of just how breezy it was.

Coffee and Croissant on Manorbier Beach, Pembrokeshire, Wales

In the mad rush to get Danny to his event in time (it always feels harder to leave the house on a Sunday!) I hadn't had breakfast or even time to make up a flask.  Dave picked me up a croissant and a coffee-to- go on the way, this was much appreciated!

Girls Climbing Rocks at Manorbier Beach, Pembrokeshire, Wales

Izzy is such a climber at the moment- she is really fast and good at it too.  As it's impossible to stop her from doing this and of course she wants to play with her older sisters, we teach her how to do this safely but my heart is in my mouth each time I see her climb higher.

Izzy also loves to snore and pretend to sleep.   In this photo she was pretending to sleep on the rocks- not the most comfortable of places!

There were some pretty good waves but the sea looked far too cold to invite me in without a wetsuit!

Here, Dave is playing "pebble rounders" with a stick.  I was  so (easily!) impressed by him hitting every pebble they threw to him. I miss a ball with a bat!

We then picked up Danny and all headed to Shrinkle Bay and Church Doors together for our picnic and more exploring but I'll put those photos into another post!
