WEEK 33 – Barmouth, Gwynedd to Aberystwyth, Ceridigion


35 miles walked

(total 1,783 miles walked)

I returned to Barmouth this week and only managed to walk 3 more days before calling it quits for this year. 

My walk around the enormous Cardigan Bay from North to Mid-Wales has been dominated by poor weather; very strong wind and heavy rain. It has been good to experience for myself just how extreme coastal weather can be and I have enjoyed it. However, I would like to be able to experience this area in better weather as well, so I can see the views and the wildlife. 

Loving this trip.

    Cannot wait for March the weather will be beautiful, you will enjoy the views, people will be around , the UK will just have woken from a long, and very stormy winter, and you will be rejuvenated. Merry Christmas Juice.

    Hi Luc. Very pleased you will be warm, dry and safe for the next few weeks. Greetings from Mexico, where there is no guarantee of dry weather – we got caught in an amazing tropical storm today, but at least the temperature was 28 degrees so probably more comfortable than Wales!
    See you at Xmas. Dxx

    Hi Lucy, We have been trying to keep up with your adventure, it sounds like you made a good call on going home for Christmas. The weather conditions have been tough these last few weeks, we walked 11 miles of the North Cornwall coast on 28th Nov it was a wet and wild experience to say the least. It was difficult to stand at times. Sounds like you won’t be in North Devon before April. Have a good restful Christmas, hopefully see you in the new Year. Merry Christmas. Pete

      Hi Pete. I think you’re right with your estimate of April for North Devon. It was the wind that made me decide it was too dangerous at times to walk alone along cliff paths. Not worth it…and the views weren’t as good as they could have been. I am enjoying being home but looking forward to walking again already! Merry Christmas.

    Hi there,
    Please could you email me regarding use of one of your images in a publication? It’s of Shandwick Bay – we would like to use in our next pull out guide on the Highlands. My email address is leanne@dogfriendly.co.uk

    Hi Lucy,

    Disappointed there are no more updates! Any idea when you are going to resume the challenge?

    Don’t forget that you are more than welcome to stay with Geoff in Dorchester and me in Bournemouth when you get round to this neck of the woods.

    Say Hi to Sally. No skiing for us this year as in the middle of trying to buy a house….

    Hope all going well.
