With another gorgeous day forecasted weather-wise out here on the west coast, I got out early to savour the sunrise before heading to Fort Rodd Hill & Fisguard Lighthouse. These sunrises and sunsets are at my doorstep but I prefer to walk closer to them. I am surprised at the number of people who are doing the same. I never have outright ownership on this trail at any time and I like it like that here.
Many many years ago I visited the Fisguard Lighthouse with a friend who then did an oil painting of it for me which has been hanging in my kitchen ever since. Those many many years I did not understand the phrase "remember to breathe", today I do and I did that today.
I spotted those two red chairs peeking out between the rocks so walked out to the edge to invest a few minutes.
I spent loads of time near the Lighthouse before touring around the Fort Rodd Hill grounds. At this time of year on weekdays, the buildings are closed. Down a short winding trail in the forest and through a rod iron gate, there are two more of those red chairs. Both sets today have grand vistas from them.
I had a late picnic on the grounds and watched the few people come and go and also the workers prepare the property for winter. Across the meadow I could see the O-Tentiks were already closed for the season.
It was time to head back to my home away from away and enjoy a short lounge about before going back out, crossing the street and aiming for a lengthy stroll along the walkway to the end of the breakwater at Ogden Point. By now the sun was getting low and I still had an hour walk back so hit the walkway and made my way home to where I feel at home and with a heart and soul full of sea salt air and vistas.
