So many more favourite moments that I wanted to capture from our time in Pembrokeshire, Wales, so here's a final post to list all of those.
Favourite Walks: Of the miles and miles that we hiked on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, where there is something gorgeous to see on each section so you really can't go wrong, these were our most favourite of the favourites.
Cairfai to Whitesands - Huge long distance, glorious vistas, porpoises in the water below.
Cairfai to Solva - Encountering the horses, descending into the village into the cove.
Pwllgwaelod to Newport - Climbing to the highest point, following the coast line, descending into little coves, mix of terrain like woods and ferns.

When the bus arrived in Haverfordwest, on schedule. There's that moment when you do lots of pre-trip planning and you realize, "I hope all of this information like bus schedules is accurate, because we're kind of counting on it," and then it's sweet relief when it all comes together nicely.
At the end of our hike from Caerfai to Solva, we had a half hour before the bus back to our starting point, so we popped into The Ship for a half pint each. The bartender was nowhere to be found, so one of the regulars perched at the counter just moseyed around and served us himself.

Sleeping 10 hours every night after long, fresh air-filled hikes each day.
Souvenir tins and postcards.
Cups of tea and biscuits after returning from our long walks.
There's a little stone chapel built deep down in this cove. We hiked down and then climbed back up to wander along the clifftops, watching mountain climbers assemble their gear for the rock faces here.
