Wild Family Fun

Tales of living, working and enjoying life in the outdoors

Looking Back

It’s been a while since my last post but, by making use of some free time over Christmas, I was able to get some memories and photographs in order.

My last post was about our decision how to spend our family holiday. We decided on being adventurous and chose to visit St Davids in Pembroke. I’ve been there many times with my work, but had never been there with my family.

We chose a quiet campsite called Porth Clais which is situated about 10 minutes out-of-town and is very close to, (if not almost ON), the cliff edge. I wouldn’t like to call it a basic campsite but, at £7 for adults and £3 for children, you get clean and warm showers, toilets, places to wash dishes etc, as well as a good area for washing your wetsuits. Porth Clais also offers a lot more services at reception which always come in handy for when those “important” items get forgot!

The journey down was great, but the reaction from my husband and daughter when we reached our destination was amazing. The long stretch of beautiful beaches, little unique coffee shops, etc, were all met with very happy faces.

This time, putting up tents was easy. We’ve both realised that using each other’s strengths and weaknesses are paramount, (so I took the lead). When our ‘home’ was ready, I took my family to my favourite place, the walk down to the harbour. As you can see from the pictures, its beautiful and is truly one of my most favourite places to be.

So, for the week we were there, we had one very gorgeous sunny beach day with ice creams and body boarding. Leisurely sitting in coffee shops drinking lattes and eating slabs of rustic, home-made chocolate cake. Oh yes, and delicious, freshly cooked fish and chips in the town centre. Then catching crawly-crabs with a cheap line thrown from the harbour wall. My favourite activity was when my daughter jumped from the harbour wall into the sea… a very proud parent moment.

It was a fantastic holiday. Both my husband and daughter, (on separate occasions), wanted to move down to St Davids, as they loved it that much.

So from the nervous decision-making from my husband and me chosing a camping holiday we came away at the and of a relaxing week both agreeing that we had made the best decision and we are already planning when we can go back.
