Spring is here and the longer light is coaxing the sunny days to come in behind it. I made the effort to get Molly the bulldog and I straight down Pobbles Bay, Gower after work today, and it paid off as we had the bay at high tide to ourselves.
There was little wind, some gentle clouds and a perfect spring evening to be enjoyed.
Arriving at high tide meant the view was fantastic…
…but no beach for us.
There are places you can go at Pobbles, if you know your cliff paths, but as always know your limitations and take care of yourselves. The cliffs and boulders Molly and I explore require agility and a lot of local knowledge.
But it does give you some very different views of Pobbles and Three Cliffs Bay.
The high tide and evening light really made the bay atmospheric for just Molly and I to take in on our own.
We caught the bay at a great light for when the tide was so high.
Molly was happy exploring the cliff paths.
The views really were fantastic.
But this was a quick visit, we were there and back in an hour and a half. Yet Molly still found the only muddy puddle.
Pennard gossip alert! On the way home I noticed someone is seriously doing up the Three Cliffs overlooking dream house Shirecombe.
Molly had her serious face on at accusations of being in muddy puddles, but apparently ‘it was a similar looking dog’…
So the lesson is, make the most of your spring evenings and score those empty Gower beaches to yourself, DimExcuses.
