“Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 30 – ‘After’”

Flowers at St Non's AA

After the Mist

This post is in response to Hugh’s Views and News photo challenge with the subject of ‘After”

At the end of our lovely weekend in St David’s, Pembrokeshire, we woke, on the Sunday morning, to a thick mist outside the small hotel’s windows. It was still present, but clearing as we set out to gain access to the coastal footpath that would take us the mile or so to the seaward side of St David’s village and our eventual destination – the Cathedral.

Soon, we were at the point where you come off the sea path and are greeted by the old stone chapel of St Non, mother of St David.

St Non was said to have been raped by a local prince, giving rise to her pregnancy, which was marked by various signs as a holy one. St David was the result and the place of St David has been revered ever since.

It used to be the edict that two pilgrimages to St David’s were considered by the church to be the equivalent of one to Rome; three the equivalent of one to Jerusalem.

By the time we got to St Non’s Chapel, the mist had lifted.

  1. St David’s is a place on my ‘to visit’ list, Steve. Now that we are living in Swansea it shouldn’t be a problem getting there. The coastal path is one we have already discovered.
    Beautiful photo. Thank you for participating in this week’s challenge.
