St David's, Wales

Part 1
What a find this St David's in Wales was! Remember we very seldom book ahead when touring, same applied when we had the Harley's, so it can be hit and miss, which is half the fun. We tend to look for some suitable stopover from 3pm or when we've had enough driving for the day, whichever comes first.
Leaving the pub carpark near Hereford early Sunday morning, we travelled to the outskirts of Cardiff through beautiful Welsh countryside and then joined the M4 motorway going west towards the Welsh coast in Pembrokeshire. We aimed for Tenby which looked drab and then entered the postcode of Caerfai Bay campsite near St David's, an extra hour's drive.

A lovely level grassed area has Joan all smiles ....

.... with a view of the sea ....

The following morning saw us walking to St David's which is a mile away for a look around. A touristy village with many cafe's, pubs, arts and crafts shops, deli's and small supermarket. All neat and well presented - hmm!

Oh yes, and officially St David's is recognised as the smallest city in the UK, so ordained by the Queen in 1995, because any place with a cathedral is historically recognised as a city in the UK. For further reading:-
