Pembrey Park Labrador Dog Walk

Stick throwing OlympicsSo this week has been pretty eventful in that my work has meant that I have not been out

walking the Labradors as often as I would have liked and have had to rely on Jan to take up the slack when I have not been around.  From this week however as part of my fitness regime, I am going to look to go out road walking in the evenings if need be with just one of the pack to get the fresh air that I need.

Being stuck in front of a computer screen for twelve plus hours a day is not good for anyone and the break of taking the dogs out is what I need to keep my sanity.  That aside we did have a lovely walk yesterday down Pembrey National Park.

I can recommend the place to anyone, we got there at around 8 am yesterday and because of this the gates to the park were unmanned so make sure you have change for the machine as the barrier stops entry but at cost of £2 for the day it is nothing when you consider what is on offer.

So chilled outI will write another post about Pembrey National Park itself as it has such a wealth of things to offer on top of the 8 miles of beaches.  It was lovely to get out yesterday morning, we made sure that we took food and drink for both the dogs and us even though there are cafes within the park all we needed was a bench to eat our food on.

There wasn’t as many people as we expected down the beach area and only came across a couple of people but then it was before 9 am so I am guessing that it would be a different story by mid day.  That aside we did meet quite a few people on bikes with their children who were very accommodating with the dogs as some places they zoom up behind you not caring as to whether they are going to startle you.  These are the same people who get upset when they are overtaken closely by cars on the main road so being considerate is a

The dogs really did enjoy the sea with Charlie “The Ginge” jumping through the waves and taking any opportunity to just lie down in the water.  I don’t know what it is with him no matter where we go if there is the chance to lie down in the water he will do so.  Perhaps it is just a naughty streak in him where he just loves getting wet.

By the end of the journey, we managed to clock up nearly five miles according to the on my phone but it didn’t want to produce a map of our journey which I will look to include with my next walking post.

 

Have a good one

Mat, Jan & the Woofers
