The Blog is back and we have a new puppy. We will be completing the Wales Coastal Path in Cleo’s memory and alongside us will be Bonnie the Havanese.
25th November 2020
Finally I have written up our 2nd walking weekend which completed the Meirionnydd Coast of the coast path. Only 6 walks in the whole section, but with the 2 hardest days of climbing on the whole path, and this weekend we did the 2nd of them.
Llanbedr to Fairbourne – 15.0 miles completed
Fairbourne to Tywyn – 16.0 miles completed
Tywyn to Aberdyfi – 4.5 miles completed
That’s it for this year – I reckon we have still got 254.5 miles to go next year!!
30th October 2020
Well in January we said we would finish the coastal path this year and we had big plans to get out at every opportunity. Then things changed, and the end of August saw our first opportunity to walk this year with 40 miles completed on Anglesey:
Holyhead to Trearddur Bay – 16.7 miles completed
Trearddur Bay to Four Mile Bridge – 9.2 miles completed
Four Mile Bridge to Aberffraw – 14.1 miles completed
We still have a second weekend of walking in September to write up, and then that is it for this year unfortunately with local lockdowns in place and then the nights drawing in.
Here is the complete list of all the walks, with links to all the ones completed – Here you can see the task that remains ahead of us to complete the coastal path this year 28 more walks to go and 342.7 miles to go, so it is going to take some effort to complete it within under 12 months!!
Here are the last walks we completed in 2019:

On Facebook we have set up a closed group with all the new walks as we do them, and we will transfer all the old photos across as well. The facebook group is called Walkies Bonnie and from here you can get access to all the photos on each walk rather than the highlights on here (capacity doesn’t allow for many photos on here). If you want to join the group then make a request.
We are also on Instagram and on Twitter @walkiescleo
