Pembrey Country Park

Posted on by Jason

On Easter weekend we took a trip down to South Wales to visit Marie’s family and decided to have an afternoon in Pembrey Country Park. I’d suggest if you go you don’t bother with the 64 mile walk which starts there – especially with 2 kids…

It’s a fabulous old place between Carmarthenshire and the town of Llanelli consisting of 500 acres of parkland and old railway lines, World War II bunkers and pill boxes many of which are still accessible. There’s also a ski slope with a toboggan run, adventure play areas and mountain bike trails. Definitely worth spending a day down there if you get a chance and you can camp over too. Not for me though – I prefer a hotel!

I took a few pictures as always. All these with the Sigma 50mm which had been giving us a little issue and so I wanted to give it a good test. It’s focusing seems to be wandering a little and while it stayed perfect for most of the time we were there, it went off on one after a couple of hours, so it’s gone to Sigma for some TLC. Hopefully it will be back to it’s best on it’s return. Here’s the pics.

That’s it! I liked the black and whites in the tunnels and Marie with trees as ears (yes I did do that on purpose).
