7th March 2016 Coastal drive to Fishguard

The other large town in these parts is Fishguard, so we drove along the coastal road loosely following where the Strumble Shuttle bus service goes.

Some of the roads were extremely narrow, with ladies randomly parking their cars in the middle of the road!  The farmers are clearly working extremely hard at the moment and we passed many farms where new potatoes had just been harvested and were for sale.

Along the route, just before Fishguard we came across a National Trust spot called Garn Fawr and we were blessed with some spectacular views out to sea.

Five minutes drive later we were stood beside the Strumble Head Lighthouse, where there is plenty of free parking. The weather had been kind to us so we were treated to some excellent views.

If you don’t fancy a nerve-wracking drive along minor roads you can travel along the A487 most of the way, just heading off to the specific villages down shorter lanes.

Fishguard Harbour is quite pretty, again with free parking! They seem to put on quite a few festivals throughout the season so we’ll definitely be back.

About Dean

Angela and I decided that there was more to life than working hard to keep up the payments on the mortgage, to pay the gas, electric, phone bills etc. etc. SO............ In 2008 we sold our house, I initially took a year off (Unpaid) and Angela handed in her notice! We bought a motorhome and set off for a year of travelling! This was the best thing we had done in our lives (Apart from getting married) and we have no regrets. During the year I managed to secure a redundancy package which felt very strange. Almost sad as I had worked for the same company for 19 years (BT). It was always our plan to have a whole year off before thinking about the 'W' word. We began applying to the Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) for the position of Holiday site assistants in August 2009. After the interview, work experience and induction we were finally given a contract at the CCC site in Inverewe (Scotland). Our plan is to work through the summer in the UK then head to Europe to overwinter before coming back to work the following summer season. Hopefully these few words and our blog will inspire others to get off the hamsters wheel and see that there is more to live than having a house and material things. A cliche I know but this is not a rehearsal, life is too short!!! Since our first contract in Scotland we have worked a winter contract in Oxford (never again!) not Oxford but a winter contract. Hereford for two years, living in a yurt for one! And Cornwall. In between our working we have also travelled a bit. Hopefully this website will give you an insight into our alternative lifestyle. Get out there and live the dream!
