Travelsonabike2 Wales Saturday 13th-July-2019

Garry McGivern Travelsonabike2 is cycle touring in Wales on Saturday, 13th-July-2019. Llangadog to Fishguard. 67 miles. That’s the easy part done, now to start the tour!
I arrived in Fishguard at around 4pm and immediately went to book onto the first available ferry. Finding the ferry terminal completely deserted and closed I booked online.

Carmarthen castle, not quite as I’d expected!

There’s only two ferries a day, the overnight one that leaves just before midnight, or 1pm tomorrow.

Rather than hang around tomorrow morning and wasting a day I’ve booked on tonight’s crossing, which I’ll probably regret later! But I figured I’ll get to Ireland cycle for a few hours then stop early. The only trouble is, it might be more than a few hours cycling, I arrive at 4am!

After booking my passage I went down to the beach to watch a dragon boat race. I watched them set off into the sea expecting them to return after a short while, they didn’t! Apparently they race around the headland and finish in another bay!

And their off, never to be seen again!

After that I had a little ride around, before going to get some fish and chips to eat, which is where I’m sat at the moment! Only five hours to kill before my ferry leaves!

  1. Hi Garry! Those little ride arounds are what it’s all about. What a dismal looking castle. And the ferry: I bet it’s a cattle boat. Sorry to be so negative. What beats me is how you can process your blog in a tent
    When you get over there, give the Blarney stone a miss.

    1. The castle was a bit of let down, I think I had Caernarfon in my head!
      The ferry was pretty quiet, so not too bad.
      Modern technology Malcolm, that’s how it’s all done, and if can do it anybody can!
