The Future King at Strumble Head, Pembrokeshire, Cymru

To view more of my landscapes go here...


From our friends over at


Strumble Head (Welsh: Pencaer) is a rocky headland of Pen Caer in north Pembrokeshire, Wales.


It gives its name to Strumble Head Lighthouse (on the island of Ynys Meicel) and Strumble VOR, a way point in many trans-atlantic flights.[1]


Strumble Head is one of the best sites in Britain to view cetaceans, particularly the porpoise which can be spotted in the tidal races around the headland with modest binoculars. Public cetacean watches are frequently organized by Sea Trust.[2] Seals can often be spotted in the waters beneath the light house. A wartime lookout post was converted for use by the public as a shelter from the wind for wildlife fans and was opened by Bill Oddie.[3]


A few hundred metres out to sea are two small uninhabited islands, Ynys Onnen and Carreg Onnen, which were put up for sale in 2004.[4]


A French shipwreck, possibly from the last invasion of Britain was found nearby in 2003.[5]


Isiah 9


1 Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who

were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of

Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he

will honor Galilee of the Gentiles, by the way of the sea,

along the Jordan-


2 The people walking in darkness

have seen a great light;

on those living in the land of the shadow of death [a]

a light has dawned.


3 You have enlarged the nation

and increased their joy;

they rejoice before you

as people rejoice at the harvest,

as men rejoice

when dividing the plunder.


4 For as in the day of Midian's defeat,

you have shattered

the yoke that burdens them,

the bar across their shoulders,

the rod of their oppressor.


5 Every warrior's boot used in battle

and every garment rolled in blood

will be destined for burning,

will be fuel for the fire.


6 For to us a child is born,

to us a son is given,

and the government will be on his shoulders.

And he will be called

Wonderful Counselor, [b] Mighty God,

Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.


7 Of the increase of his government and peace

there will be no end.

He will reign on David's throne

and over his kingdom,

establishing and upholding it

with justice and righteousness

from that time on and forever.

The zeal of the LORD Almighty

will accomplish this.
