A few weekends ago my sister Jo, Rebecca, Izzy and I went on an adventure to Lindsway Bay, St Ishmaels in Pembrokeshire (Danny and Caitlyn were playing with friends). I love heading west to explore the beaches of Dale, Marloes and St Ishmaels.
We parked near St Ishmaels Sports and Social Club (Sat Nav Postcode: SA62 3SY).
From here we walked though the park and along the coastal path at the end of the sport’s field.
Izzy had a rest in the spectators stand, she’s feeling the heat as the sun had warmed the metal.
We turned right at the end of the cricket pitch and walked along the path in the crop field heading towards the view of the sea.
The spring/summer coastal hedgerow flowers are bright and beautiful. I love walks at this time of the year (yes i know I say that during every season!). I think whichever season we’re in is always my favourite with exception to the end of a very long winter!
The wonder of nature! This is a lovely flower to draw and paint.
At the end of the crop field we turned left to head to Lindsway Bay. The yellow rapeseed fields look stunning against the blue sky.
A speckled wood butterfly kindly perched still in the sun for a photo.
Lady’s Glove, Foxglove. Passing Foxglove always brings me back to my childhood, “Never touch the foxglove- it’s poisonous.” This of course always increased my interest in them.
We love Oxeye Daises. So simple, bright and cheerful. When I first went to university I chose a blue and yellow colour theme for my bedroom and everything was decorated with sunflowers and daisies.
They’re perfect for wearing in your hair too!
A blue damselfly.
Izzy always walks barefoot when she can!
Then we reached Lindsway Bay.
Steep steps lead down to the beach so it is not accessible to all.
The tide was in on this occasion so there was not a lot of room or time to explore the beach.
Always colour coordinate your bucket with the daisies.
Even the sight of the refinery cannot spoil this beautiful view.
I love this photo of Izzy, she is smiling at her Aunty Jo Jo.
Big sister, doo doo, do, do do, do doo.
We followed the path back to the crop field.
Across the cricket field, checking if we liked butter with buttercups. Izzy said to me “You like vegan butter” which is very true.
Then back to St Ishmaels Park where we promised the kids they could have a play.
It’s one of my favourite parks as it’s small and quiet with lots for the kids to do.
As well as the playground equipment there is plenty of seating and beautiful gardens including a sensory garden. It’s a very peaceful place to sit while the kids play.
The bathers are always on during summer- ever ready for a wild swim!
These girls love climbing and swinging.
There is also a public toilet just around the corner from the park. St Ishmaels Sports and Social Club is nearby for refreshments and food. A short walk or drive away there is also The Brook Inn, a family friendly pub.
We enjoy days out in nearby Monkhaven, West Dale and Mill Bay too. You can also read about a previous visit to Lindsway Bay.
