PwllGwaelod to Ceibwr Bay...
Another terrible forecast, F5-F6, again from the South West & again I decide to give it a go.
I set off at 08:30AM & was going well, I evan headland hopped straight past Newport Bay. After that the situation went downhill rapidly with the high wind creating messy sea's.
Nearing Ceibwr I spotted what I'm sure was a Basking Shark. I didn't see both fins as you usually do with a Basking Shark but it stayed on the surface moving slowly. I wasn't stopping for a closer look however as the sea was quite rough & holding my concentration.
The cliffs are shear on this part of the coast & the only exit point between Newport sands & Poppit in Cardigan is Ceibwr Bay. I had no idea how far Poppit was as I don't have a map of this area so with the sea getting rougher I decide to pull in & make camp at Ceibwr Bay.
The rain is now pounding down as I write this & I'm sat in a lime kiln next to my tent. I've made a makeshift seat from some rocks & the view from the kiln is much better than being sealed in my tent.
Should keep the cabin fever away...
