Welsh Walk Day 1- Fishguard to Newport
Wednesday 20th April. All trains were on time and I left Fishguard station at 1:25 with cloudless blue sky and hot sunshine. Enjoyable cliff walking soon started all a bit reminiscent of Cornwall but not as tough. I had targeted Newport which was a bit ambitious and I didn't arrive until 6:45 to camp on a pleasant private site near the harbour (parrog). I have now walked up into the town (about 10 mins) where I am about to experience Welsh cawl in the Royal Oak, and I am drinking paint of Red Dragon. I will report on the cawl later- I'm not sure exactly what it is at this stage. I have been told that the next section of this Coastal path is really tough so I intend to set a modest target for tomorrow.
