South from Borth on the coastal path

We’ve done this one before, eight years ago (it hasn’t changed much! See Down the coast – Borth to Aber). We’re taking the train: a day return to Aberystwyth, but we’ll get out at Borth and complete the journey to the railway’s terminus on foot, along the coastal path with wonderful views of Cardigan Bay. Closer to hand, there are several little gatherings of splendid parasol mushrooms, and in the air are numerous gulls and one or two red kites. Unusually, we’re above them occasionally – this isn’t a level path. At highest, we’re about 350ft above sea level, but the numerous ups and downs make for 1,300ft of ascent in total. Nor is it a long path – a little over six miles between the two railway stations, which means we don’t need to hurry to catch the train home again. Just as well – the next one is two hours later…
