Opened the flaps of my tent to be showered with ice which had frozen there during the frosty night. As I looked out onto the sunlit beach I saw six wild Welsh ponies enjoying themselves cantering up the beach, pretending they were on the Camargue.
A truly amazing moment. Can’t buy them.
Then it was a trek through my favourite things sand dunes. Then it was going into the marsh land that stretched all the way up the estuary. A diversion was going to put an extra 2 miles on the walk but this was more than compensated by a visit to the Cwm Ivy Cafe & Crafts good coffee good cake and good value.
Then it was walking across the marshes, watched by the wild ponies before camping just past Crosti.
