Thanks Delicagirl, great idea but a little close to home for us. We often pop down that area we both love that whole coastline, Amroth, Saundersfoot and Tenby. daiboy

fair enough

Do you know about Kete ? http://www.visitpembrokeshire.com/explore-pembrokeshire/gazing-at-the-stars/

Almost at the end of a dead end lane, there is a wonderful carpark close to "The Vomit" part of the coastal footpath - which gives a lovely view over to the island (whose name escapes me) where you can bird-watching. Kete also has an interesting World War Two history - training for radar operators was done here, and 400 folks worked here. The trainee radar-spotters were given their radar equipment, and a Walls Ice-cream bicycle to install it on, which enabled them to drive round the Pembrokeshire countryside learning how to spot aircraft and submarines.... The bicyles were commandeered by the War Office due to a shortage of petrol at the time !!! There are wonderful pictures of this "Dads Army type activity" in the NT carpark. There is also the old lighthouse and some lovely walks to be had along the coast where there are the remains of a lot of military buildings.

The sunsets here are gorgeous.....

Thanks - i have sat many a time watching the sun set in this beautiful, but isolated spot. If the weather is kind there is a boat taking bird watchers over to the island but i dont know if it runs this late in the year....
