A Boat trip to remember – Falcon Boats.

Ffion Rees Falcon Boats Pembrokeshire feature

Exploring Pembrokeshire’s coastline by boat is a “must do”.

Video Inside

Holidaymakers and locals can experience the wonderful offshore marine life and scenery from a variety of boat trip companies and this can be the highlight of many trips to the county.

Bouncing across the waves in a rigid inflatable boat, or RIB, is exhilarating, while gentling cruising around the cliffs and investigating the coves and caves is a magical experience. You can be so close to the seabirds and seals or porpoises while gaining a new insight into the fantastic coastal scenery and the vital importance of the wild unspoilt and protected waters.

Pembrokeshire Culture Club, a local Meetup group, were lucky to take a trip from St. Justinian’s with Falcon Boats around Ramsey Island

Coastal, Felt and Driftwood Artist – Designs inspired by the sea

Over six months ago I spent a busy day at the Christmas Fair in Pembroke Castle and met many varied and talented stallholders (this is a great annual event and I would suggest putting it in your diary now!) One particular stall drew me back several times and I was captivated by the work of Sue Powell – she manages to somehow to really capture the natural beauty, colours and wildness of the West Wales coast. After chatting with Sue, we agreed to keep in touch and to arrange an interview in the summer.

We joined Sue at her home, and spent an enjoyable afternoon watching her at work and finding out more about her life as an artist in West Wales. When I had first seen her pictures at the Pembroke Castle event, I had not realised they are from felted wool and also had no idea of the labour-intensive work and skill that goes into each unique felted picture and her driftwood art.

A Field Year – March

Spring comes to the Field

The month of March in Pembrokeshire, as in many places, can be a contrast  – definite signs of Spring, but still some grey days and early frosts. Here in North Pembrokeshire in 2017 there is a wonderful warm spell at the end of the month, but also several unusually crisp starts. Averaging about 9-11 C the rise in temperatures overall allowing the plants and fields to flourish.

For farmers, the longer days are very welcome as there is much to do at this time of year – lambing and calving is well under way, along with top-dressing and fertilising the fields. There is still plenty of slurry spreading, too.
