Holiday 2016 ~ Going to the North

The next day, after we left the friendly Connaught Guest House and Pembroke we followed my planned route up north. Our next stop was St David's Cathedral in St Davids. Another amazing place to see, of course along with the Bishop's palace.

There is just something with Gothic architecture that draws me in like a moth to a flame. I cannot help it but to admire those magnificent buildings and the people from the past that had built them. What achievements with every single structure that still stands and defies the time.

Leaving St Davids we followed the road and as usual when we thought we were in our car for too long, we made a stop. Unfortunately I haven't remembered the name, but as it was already close to lunch time, we combined the stop with the break on the beach 
The only brave one in the water...
and a playground.
While Patrik played there I met a nice lady and we started to chat. Well, I think I don't need to tell you that my OH was not surprised seeing me talking with the people. I always do that. If people approach me I have no trouble with the conversation. 

The one thing I'm not going to forget was a poor waiter in a pub for whom I had a feeling that he would rather leave the premises than to serve us. He looked so scared and till this day I have no idea why.

Nevertheless it was an interesting experience and we drove forwards, making our next stop at Cilgerran Castle, where of course we had to take our pictures with the straw knight. 

After that the OH had decided had seen enough for a one morning. As Patrik is an early riser, we were usually first in the line for our breakfast, so the decision was mutual that we continue our journey onto Aberystwyth. 

I'm sure I don't need to explain how much trouble I had just to say the name of the city...
