Wanderlust and food.

Hello there,

I hope you are all happy and that life is treating you all well,

The last couple of days have been great fun, out for a drive with my partner and a picnic, what more could you ask for?

Yesterday was a bright but breezy day and we headed out to Solva, which is a small harbour town about half an hour away from us for our lunch, trusty egg and cress pitta breads, crisps and pop, I know we haven’t grown up but it makes us very happy, as do the dogs who love to play on the beach. We don’t have a dog anymore and we do miss it on days like that, but with us being here there and everywhere it isn’t the best to have a pet so we just enjoy watching them playing, digging and sniffing.

After a wander along the beach and taking a few photos on the way, we decided to then head on the Newgale, which is the local surfer beach.  I do not surf but I love the waves there, it is a wide bay and they crash in with quite a force.

This photo is a beauty of a boat at Solva, I would love to see it bobbing around the harbour.

Today we went to Abercastle, which is on the way to Fishguard and had a lovely time watching the fishermen bringing in the lobster pots and the crabs, sadly we had no cash on us to purchase any, not that I could have dressed either of them, I am very squeamish! The clouds came over this morning and it has been a bit drizzly but we did manage to pop out for a walk in between showers up the folly in the feature photo, it looks more impressive that is actually is but hey it is a lovely feature at the quiet harbour.

We feel that this place could be better for the film we are shooting in October as it less touristy and it has a rather nice Lime pit that could be used instead of the cave at Broad Haven as the tide doesn’t get that high, we don’t need to decide until the week before as all are close.

Before I go a quick recipe that I found the other day on Pinterest,

Roast garlic and cauliflower soup

Serves 2/3


1head of cauliflower

4 large cloves of garlic

Stock cube


Seasoning and water.


Heat the oven to 200*

Cut the cauliflower into florets and put onto a baking tray

Place the garlic on the tray as well, peeled.

Drizzle with a little oil and season

Bake until the cauliflower is cooked through and browned

transfer into a large heavy-based saucepan and add the stock cube and water, enough to cover.

Bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes, take off the heat and blend using a hand blender until smooth.

Serve with crusty bread.


Now it may not look very appetising .. but it is Roast Cauliflower and Garlic soup well worth a look for, very warming and flavoursome.

Better go and edit a few more photographs before dinner..

Have a lovely evening, take care, keep smiling
