The Sunniest Day of 2015 so far, Sunday February 8th.

After a mild start to winter, it has been cold. The end of January and the start of February has been a prolonged cold period with temperatures not tending to reach double figures in the day.

But this Sunday we had a glimpse of spring sun to come. A beautiful crisp day without a cloud in the sky. Molly the Frenchton and I took our usual circular walk to Three Cliffs and Pobbles that takes in Three Cliffs Valley from Pennard Castle.

Pennard Castle

Molly loves this walk, especially the sandy paths along the river.

Three Cliffs river is called the River Ilston and it has some textbook meanders along the bottom of the valley.

Looking back at this meandering river you can see Pennard Castle on the hill edge looking down on the valley.

Three Cliffs was looking majestic in the sun…

…as was Molly, showing her French Bulldog and Boston Terrier roots.

Am I the only one who thinks looking at Three Cliffs from Pobbles it looks like a lying dragon? From left to right the cliffs themselves are like crocodile nostrils going into a long nose and a head and eyes in the headland and the shoulders being the hill up from Pobbles to Pennard Cliffs?

Molly wasn’t up for much debate on the subject, preferring to focus on her ball in the sand.

Eventually she got tired out and had to lie down in the sand she had churned up.

It is still cold, but what a relief to see a hint of spring to come. Definitely the sunniest day this year, and what a day to get down the beach, DimExcuses.
