The Witch's Cauldron

Today has been our last full day here, and we waited to see what the weather was like before deciding what to do. In the end, it was rather grey and threatening, so we postponed leaving for a walk until late morning, and it started to rain as we loaded up the car at 11am - typical! The plan was to drive to Moylegrove, just outside Cardigan, and walk along the coast path to the Witch's Cauldron, a collapsed sea cave. We hadn't expected the path to be along the tops of 40 metre high cliffs, which meant we kept Mishka on his lead and I trod very carefully with Lara on my back!
The photo above is one for the Geology graduates, especially those who were on the Liverpool University GPG course 1992-1995, it's just like those outcrops we saw that first Easter!

We kept an eye out for seals and dolphins, but to no avail, so it remains that we saw a seal's head on Monday at Dinas Head, and that's been it, but there's always next time!

As usual, we couldn't escape from letting Mishka run around on a deserted beach, and indeed there was one close by at Ceibwr. We did wind up poor Mishka though by throwing treats into the sea, a few metres from shore, to see if he'll go in and swim... he'd wade in as far as his chest, but then chicken out. That was until he was hit by a freak 2-foot wave at the wrong moment, which went over his head - he hardly went back in again after that, the poor lad!
