During the last mile of my previous walk my knee decided to call a halt to future walks! Although a scan in October last had shown a tear in a ligament it had not caused any problems until the Thursday before Easter when on the Bronwydd walk. A long story short is that I am now on a waiting list for an Arthroscopy operation. I really hope that will cure the problem.
Anyway with cabin fever making an appearance I thought a short stroll on the beach at Llansteffan would be fine both for me and the beach.
Despite the rain pouring down a few hardy souls were given the kit and off we set to pick up litter.
It was pleasing to see that although this is a popular beach there was not a huge amount of rubbish to collect.
Not sure why amongst my collection were two pair of underpants and a solo flip flop, but no doubt there is a story attached. I also found one of those instant Bar B Q foil things and why do people just leave burnt out pieces of wood when they light fires. LEAVE NO TRACE.
If you are walking in this area then a slight detour to visit the castle is worthwhile which has good views over the Tywi estuary towards Ferryside.
In the main seasons I can recommend the fish and chips sold at Florries located in the car park and the tea and cakes in the cafe just a few yards away.
Thankfully the knee behaved quite well with only one "ouch" when I stepped awkwardly on the bank.
Unfortunately these random notes may become even more random for a few months.
