Dale, Pembrokeshire

Dale is an unspoilt village in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The traditional activities of agriculture and fishing still take place and have been joined by tourism as a major aspect of the area.
Yesterday (Valentine's Day) our U3A Walking Group set off in some rather misty weather!
Our walk is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast path and took us up to the headland
looking towards Milford Haven docks where vast tankers load up
with LPG and oil.
The coastal fields are already ploughed, ready for some spring planting (don't know what in this exposed place) and the soil is looking rich, dark and healthy.

When we reached the halfway point our romantic leader produced a heart-shaped box of chocolates for everyone to share (bless!)
Naturally no-one refused!
We all had a jolly, happy walk and ended with drinks and lunch at ...
The Griffin Inn, on the harbour front in Dale Village.
Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day.

That looked a lot of fun with chocolates too ! We had lovely holidays in Pembrokshire when I was young.
