Along the coast of Pembrokeshire lies an old slate quarry. Located at Abereiddy beach, a short walk along the cliff takes you around the headland where a man-made lagoon has been created from the quarrying of grey slate. The sand is an extraordinarily dark colour due to the slate which also creates a deeb blue tinge to the water.
Jack and I arrived much later than planned after the sat-nav decided to route us around the severn bridge in order to avoid the toll cost, but adding an extra hour and a half on to our journey. By the time we had booked in to a B&B and driven to Abereiddy it was about 6pm and a dark mist was rolling in making photos a challenge.
We walked around to the far side of the lagoon, passing ruined quarry buildings and slate-workers’ cottages, where the Red Bull Cliff Diving takes place. I sent the drone out to get some photos before the mist really submerged us and we left for the pub.
