Day 7: Neyland to Lindsway, 13 miles

Due to a technical hitch the blog has got a bit behind, but after a phone call from Liz tonight, here is the update - all errors and spelling mistakes are my own work! Shric

Saturday started early with a lift from John Reynolds of the Dale Sailing Company, down to Neyland Marina for a 9am start. We were offered a lift in the Dale Princess but Andy said it wouldn't have counted, which was a shame because we would have completed this stage in a fraction of the time with very little effort! Tea and toast were taken at the marina on a beautiful morning and it was a lovely walk despite the presence of the oil refineries. Pat had a close shave with a speeding car on the bend near Black Bridge. We stopped for lunch at Milford Haven whilst sitting on the Rath enjoying the views overlooking the haven. After lunch we pressed hard on to Sandy Haven before the tide came in and covered the stepping stones - we got there with just half an hour to spare! After a welcome cup of tea we continued walking to St Ishmaels where we arrived at 4pm with tired feet and a cold wind. There Di Ferris picked us up in the car and drove us home.
