Spring weekend away based at Lledrod (near Aberystwyth)

2 Apr 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Our group always has a weekend away at this time of year--March--and it is usually very well supported and this was the case again here.People are usually desperate to get away after a long winter.We always get people join us from other groups too which I really appreciate.Showing Wales off, to people who don't know the areas we choose, is fantastic.

Colin and John had suggested Lledrod for this one, based at a bed and breakfast there, Brynarth.

This proved to be a most excellent choice of venue.Most people ...

Ferryside in Carmarthenshire

15 Jan 2018 | West Wales, Women Groups

Our first adventure of 2018 turned into a sunny affair down at the seaside at Ferryside in Carmarthenshire.

15 people assembled ready to start the New Year off in style.

Part of this walk involved a stroll along the beach which could have been done at the beginning or the end.

As it was high tide, this decision was made for us and we started off inland with the beach stroll left to the very end of the walk.

From the start, we had great views, at first over to Llansteffan and as we climbed up through a field the views increased, to further down the Towy Estuary and further west towards Laugharne and Pendine....
