An Hour Or So In Aberaeron

A sea side town on the coast of west Wales

Aberaeron is about halfway between the northern start of the Pembrokeshire Coast walk and Aberystwyth. This stop here is not my first visit to the seaside town of Aberaeron. A few years ago we rented a house by the sea for a week. It was then I was touched by the magic of Aberaeron. I think the locals have got it right with colourful houses, boats, a harbour, good places to eat and drink (Check out the Harbour Master Hotel.) Ice cream, fish and chips….. The list goes on…. For me the sun always shines here!


Not sure if it’s good or bad luck to see a single crow but this one hopped on the stone to pose for its photo!

If you have a few hours then a coast walk to New Quay is recommended for great views of Cardigan Bay. There are also boat trips to see the many Dolphins living in the bay.

I think this is a beacon to mark the harbour entrance at night.

The Van Plan

Buy a van, (Or two.) Convert to a motor home then explore the UK and Europe, reaching places on the map other van travellers can not reach while enjoying vanlife in comfort.
