Looks a great journey Dhf..and the weather fantastic.

That last photo of the cliffs in your post after the Homer one really grabs my imagination..The rock shapes look like faces and something out The Lords of The Rings adventure

Thank you Mr Gurnard, I'm really pleased you can see them as I do, the old man to the left with a tall hat looks best I think,
with his grey beard and dark eye's, If you google Elegug stacks,(Elegug; Welsh for Guilimot by the way)
you'll find hundreds of really good shots of these sea stacks,
mainly all shot from the cliffs though, and not many from the sea, This was the best journey I've ever experienced along this stretch,
I've spent hours before now, tied up behind the old St Govan lightship (the last surviving manned LV) that sat just off the coast here,
with a relief vessel for Trinity maintanance guys working onboard, but it was imposible to actually see any detail from that distance,
I did however, hug this stretch a couple of years back whilst helming my last boat, but didn't notice as much as being a passenger,
so I'm delighted I had the opportunity, and managed to capture shots that I wanted almost 25 years ago.
Best regards

This section takes us past Manorbier, Lydstep head then across Caldey sound to little Caldey also known as St Margarets Isle,
There's also a RIB charter that runs from Tenby around Caldey.

Then on to Saundersfoot to catch the Celtic longboat race, and there we have it, the full extent of the South Pembrokeshire Coast.
What a fantastic cruise it was too.

RIBase
Some cracking' pics there DHF of a part of the country I definitely intend to visit next year and I know I shouldn't say this on a RIB forum but that Bristol Pilot Cutter under full sail looks the dogs wotsits. Together with the great 'J' class yachts the cutter is one of the most beautiful sailing vessels ever designed and extremely capable too, obviously.

Thanks for sharing.

Yep some great shots there Paul . As always the scenery never lets you down .

The mammals ( dolphin & porpoise ) were conspicuous by their absence , as were the fin whales which once again were spotted the week before , near The Smalls .

Perhaps we can do another before the year is out , taking in Ramsey Island & Sound , The Bishops & Clerks and all points north to Abergwaun.......

Cheers BB, Thats great to think some of my shots have attracted yours and hopfully others interest to visit the Pembrokeshire coast.
Yeah she's was a beauty cutter, there where lots of other fine craft about that day, but nothing as dodgy looking as than that little green one? in pic 1.
and that thing made it to the Scilly Isles apparently.
I forgot to throw in some sunset pics, so here's some looking over Skomer and St Brides Bay.
All the best

Hey Bern, Thanks for another fantastic cruise and the great opportunity to capture these shots, It is a shame we didn't see the Fin Whales,
but it was great to get back out to the Smalls, the Gannets,Shearwater, and the waves pushing over the reefs made a spectacular sight,
not to mention the LH itself, built in 1861 to replace the previous wooden structure built 1776,
its said the wooden structure suffered some rocking during heavy storms.
It would be great to accompany on a Nrth Pembs cruise Bern, I shall look forward to that.

Here's one last shot of the Smalls, Grassholm and Skokholm all in one shot, you need to open pic full size to see the Smalls though.
