I should have posted these pictures ages ago. It has been a busy spring, between work, selfie benches and unseasonable weather followed by a fantastic start to June, I haven’t been out and about like normal. But don’t think Molly the french bulldog and I didn’t get out in April and May.
We still managed to do our famous Three Cliffs Bay Circular Walk, on a few occasions. These pictures are from the end of April.
The Spring weather wasn’t doing us any favors at all but Three Cliffs still looked great. Back to business as usual, we started off at Pennard and headed out around the golf course to Pennard Castle.
The tide was out so we could take the steep sand dune down to Three Cliffs Valley. It is a steep sandy decent made famous in the Darth Mannion extreme running challenge.
Taking the boardwalk down the valley, alongside the river to Three Cliffs Bay itself.
The biggest news from Three Cliffs is that it now has a lifeguard station after a drowning last year. This is a very dangerous beach to swim due to the strong river that continues to run even after the tide has come in. The station is very subtle and doesn’t impact on the UK’s first area of outstanding natural beauty. Can you spot the Lifeguard hut in this photo?
Once you have found the lifeguard hut, have a look for these passing planes I photographed from the valley too.
New lifeguards and passing airshow planes aside, it was definitely back to business as usual in our Gower walking.
As always Molly the French bulldog was first up the rocks…
…and first back on the sand.
Moving into Pobbles Bay we could see clearly all the way to Oxwich Bay.
We had the usual fetch in the rock pools.
Before inspecting the bluebells on the way home.
So that was Gower April 2016, business as usual. I promise to keep on top of posting in June, especially as we enter Summer sirf season, DimExcuses.
