But most of all, the dying days of summer lend a wistful retrospection that I find so conducive to appreciating landscape. Like tunes, I find that the best walks are in the minor key.
So it was my good luck that last week's visit to South Wales gave me an opportunity to further my quest to walk every section of the National Trust's 200 miles of Welsh coast. And appropriately enough, both of them are featured in our Great Welsh Walk, which runs until the end of October.

The second walk was in Pembrokeshire's wonderful Cleddau woods, near the picturesque village of Lawrenny. This walk had the benefit of starting and finishing at one of the cosiest of cosy autumn cafes, the Quayside Tearoom at Lawrenny Quay. I had been told that it was one of the best in the county, and I was not disappointed.
