Last Friday a friend and I decided
to take a walk
round Bosherston Lily Ponds.
I haven't been there for some time....
and knew that I couldn't walk far...
but really wanted to go
while the lilies are at their best!
The lily ponds are
a series of flooded limestone valleys
and are beautiful to walk around
at all times of the year
It takes about an hour or so
to walk right around at a reasonable pace.
Half way round there is a beautiful bay -
Broad Haven South
it is a job to tear yourself away
from the soft sand and rolling sand dunes
that I cannot manage to walk that far
at the moment.......
but will probably visit it from the other side
We take the narrow path
across the first pond
and enjoy looking at the lilies and wildlife around us
There was just so much to see.....
The swan and then baby moorhen!
We climbed the path up beside the pond
and stopped to look
at the profusion of wild flowers
We reached the top and looked around
Our eyes were caught
by something moving in the water
...a pair of otters!
It was difficult being quick enough to take a photo!
The Moor hen
and her chick..hopping along the lily pads!
Looks as if she's decided to join him
I only managed to do about a quarter of the walk
but so enjoyed it
and wanted to share it with you!
