Fantasy Holidays I Will Probably Never Go On Part 5

August bank holiday in Pembrokeshire staying at the TYF Eco Hotel

Itinerary would go something like this:
Take the train from work to Fishguard via my favourite train line in the world, the Crewe to Betws-y-Coed line that runs through some of the best that Snowdonia has to offer. Dusk falls as we trundle along at an appropriate place with a packed tea of home made sandwiches and treats, watching rabbits run alongside the train.
Arrive at Wales' first certified organic hotel and hang out in the bar, or maybe pop to St. Davids for a pint of Merlin's Oak
Wake bright and early in the sunshine for a day of sit-on-top kayaking on the Pembrokeshire coast, followed by a little snorkeling and swimming in St. Bride's bay.
Return to St. Davids for dinner at The Shed, the best fish restaurant in Wales, apparently.
Sunday A morning's coasteering followed by fossil hunting and even more swimming in the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy, an abandoned quarry with the clearest water and the best jumps from sheer granite cliffs - pictures don't do it justice...

Barbecue in the garden of TYF.
Pop round the (admittedly rather twee looking) galleries of St Davids and buy some extremely expensive ceramics then fly home in our helicopter.
