We've had a superb week in the very comfortable Gorge. The weather has mostly been sunny with northerly breeze. We managed a brilliant trip out to Ramsey and saw lots of interesting birds. Also did some spectacular cliff walks to St Davids Head and around Porthgain.2 v. good eating places there. Also enjoyed the Cwtch restaurant in St Davids.
