How green is my valley & coast? Three Cliffs, Gower July 2016.

Basically very green. A wet July has given us unlimited water and long days for plants to grow, as anyone with a “constantly needing cutting” lawn will tell you. I had to do a double take going through these photos before posting them. Everything was that green! Three Cliffs Bay was glowing green, not the normal sun faded pastel colours of a normal July. The vegetation is thriving in these wet, warm long days of July 2016.

Molly the Frenchton and I took our famous Three Cliffs walking loop, starting at Pennard and heading out around the golf course to Pennard Castle.

Pennard Castle is perched high above Three Cliffs Valley and this gives you a fantastic view of the famous bay.

Pennard Castle

There are loads of cows grazing the paths around Three Cliffs Bay and Pobbles Bay at the moment so make sure you get your dog on a lead when you pass this livestock. I had Molly back on her lead whenever I saw the cows, which was fortunate, seeing what we encountered later on.

Three Cliffs Cows

There are two choices when doing the circular walk from Three Cliffs to Pobbles Bay. Firstly you can follow the boardwalk around the dunes and cliffs. You can walk that boardwalk anytime. The other option is to drop down into the valley. This second option is tide dependent and involves a steep decent. It is a steep sandy slope made famous in the Darth Manion Beach & Swamp Run Challenge. Here is a picture of the path as it winds through the woods.

Pennard Castle path to Three Cliffs Valley

Once in Three Cliffs Valley it is a short walk to Three Cliffs Bay itself. Molly had decided that she was a rock climber.

DimExcuses Three Cliffs

We barely made it through the cave in Three Cliffs that leads to Pobbles Bay. We just got through as the sea was cutting the two bays off from each other (I said it was tide dependent). Molly had a dip in the incoming tide, which had a nice little wave coming in.

Molly Three Cliffs

Pobbles Bay has some fantastic limestone rock outcrops to discover.

Incoming tide at Pobbles Bay Gower

Molly was having a good look at this Pobbles Bay limestone.

Here is the whole of Pobbles Bay, cliffs topped with rich green grass, as the tide comes into this popular Gower beach.

Pobbles Bay July 2016

We added an extra bit onto our normal loop and climbed out of Pobbles onto Pennard Cliffs, walking around to Southgate. This gave a different perspective looking from Pobbles towards Three Cliffs Bay. You can see Pennard Cliffs without going to Three Cliffs by walking a loop from the National Trust car park in Southgate.

Gower July 2016

One thing did surprise me seeing the two Gower bays from the top of Pennard Cliffs, the tide comes much further into Three Cliffs Bay than it does in Pobbles Bay. I had never noticed that before.

Pobbles and Three Cliffs Bay Gower July 2016

As we followed the cliff path I saw another cow and put Molly back on her lead. Good thing I did, because I then noticed a load of afterbirth on the path as we approached the cow. She had just given birth to this calf!

Cow and new born calf, Gower July 2016

What a fantastic thing to see! But I kept Molly on a tight lead, as even a little dog can be a threat to such a young calf, and Mum would not stand for that. A cow can be a big and dangerous animal if a dog is threatening its young. We gave them the respect and distance needed that so that all parties were happy with the encounter. In summary, Gower is super green at the moment, cows are grazing the cliffs and dunes, and you should always keep your dog on lead around livestock, DimExcuses.

Three Cliffs Bay Circular Walk from National Trust Car Park.

Three Cliffs Bay

Three Cliffs Bay has to be at the top of any must see beach list. Possibly only topped in Gower by Rhossili Bay, which has once again been named as TripAdvisor best beach in Wales this month. Three Cliffs Bay is often featured in this blog and Molly the French Bulldog and I have a regular walk there via Pennard Castle.

Pennard Cliffs Bulldog

As regularly as Three Cliffs Bay is featured in this blog it is rare to see it from this angle. This is due to me joining the National Trust since it bought Rhossili Bay Car Park.

Low tide Three Cliffs

Being a member of the National Trust entitles you to use all their car parks for free. Not only do the National Trust have that great car park in Rhossili they also have a car park on Pennard Cliffs to the east of Three Cliffs right in the middle of the South Gower Coast.

Spot the bulldog

The National Trust Car Park on Pennard Cliffs is a great base for walking and exploring the Gower, with Hunts Bay really close by and Pwll Du Bay an option for someone looking for a longer walk. But its greatest attraction is that it is the easiest way to see Three Cliffs Bay by taking a short flat walk along Pennard Cliffs. Molly loves it on those cliffs, try and spot the small french bulldog in the above picture.

Molly on Pennard Cliffs

The cliffs are unfenced and have quite serious drops to the sea below so it maybe a good idea to keep children and more unpredictable dogs well away from the cliff edge. Luckily there are plenty of safe paths in land from the cliff edge to get you safely above Pobbles Bay and looking out across Three Cliffs Bay itself. As part of our ongoing #StormWatch Molly and I noted that the storm sand erosion at the mouth of Pobbles Bay is still very evident with it being of almost entirely exposed pebbles. This is causing some access problems as I noted when we last visited Pobbles Bay.

Storm Erosion Pobbles Bay

Now at this point you can just turn around and retrace your steps back along the flat Pennard Cliffs or you can drop down into Pobbles Bay and get onto the beach, but remember that what goes down must eventually climb back up. Undeterred by that Molly and I were straight down there with our feet in the sand.

Beach Bulldog

You can see all of Pobbles Bay and adjoining Three Cliffs Bay once you are on the beach. To make this a nice circular walk back to the National Trust Car Park you can walk up from Pobbles Bay to Pennard Golf Club and back through the village of Southgate. You can see the route we took on Strava here.

Three Cliffs Circular Walk

It is a great walk with fantastic views of Three Cliffs Bay. It is a good winter walk that you can do in all weathers, watch the cliff edge in high winds though.  You should try it, DimExcuses.

Stormwatch. After the wind drops the surf rises up. Langland / Caswell 2nd January 2016.

StormWatch Langland

Rain, rain and more rain as storm after storm hits the UK and temperatures refuse to drop to anyway near average temperatures for this time of year. Coupled with high winds the weather has not been good for getting out and about in South Wales.  As always I have been on the StormWatch, especially on the DimExcuses Christmas Coastal Walk earlier in the week when I saw Caswell Bay had yet again got a bit of a hammering. Nothing like when Caswell  was devastated in January 2014,  thankfully the storm protection measures put in since then seem to be holding up.

DimExcuses Surf Langland

But yesterday (the second day in January 2016) was a respite from the recent storm generated wind and rain. Spotting a good few hours of decent weather Sharon, Molly and I headed down to Rotherslade Bay, to walk around to Langland and Caswell Bay. You can follow our route on Strava here.  Before we had even left the car, we could see that the massive storm swell was still here, but now with no wind to spoil those big peaks and they were coming into Langland in beautiful massive straight lines.

StormWatch Caswell

Caswell Bay was no different with plenty of surfers in the water due to the above average temperatures. There was a 10 degree air temperature which matched the 10 degree water temperature. The sun even came out for a bit and with no wind it felt more like 13 or 14 degrees.  The beach at Caswell looked more like late autumn or early spring with families playing games and having BBQs. There were people in short sleeves, some in shorts, and even some bare foot walkers dipping their toes in.

Mild Winter on Gower 2016

It really is quite worrying. I recall Halloween 2008 when it was barely over 2 degrees for that last week in October and the Halloween night itself. Or there was the freezing winter of 2010 when it did not go over zero degrees on Christmas Day, and it wasn’t until March that we got temperatures even approaching 9 degrees. This winter we have only seen one frost and temperatures barely left double figures throughout December.

Storm Surf Langland Gower

By mid afternoon the word was out, GowerLive was posting some impressive video and surfers were coming down in droves. Langland was looking really busy with a full line up scrabbling for their go at the straight lines. A great afternoon and the 7km walk was just what was needed for Molly the French Bulldog who has been going stir crazy in this poor weather. With more storms forecast we will be continuing to keep up our StormWatch, watch this space, DimExcuses.

A New Tradition, The DimExcuses Christmas Coastal Walk, December 2015.

Pwll Du, DimExcuses Christmas Walk

Happy new year! This is my forth year of blogging and sharing my enthusiasm for getting out and about in Wales and further a field.

Rotherslade Bay

Our DimExcuses Big Gower Walk in September is now a strong tradition, you can read about this year’s walk here. But I felt that we needed something similar for the winter holidays. Yet that brings challenges in terms of shorter days, wetter and colder weather. Challenges that Molly and Darren were happy to take on as we headed to our first Gower beach, Pwll Du.

Spot the Bulldog, Pwll Du

We chose the Monday Bank Holiday (28/12/15), and started where we finish the DimExcuses Big Gower Walk at the Joiners Arms in Bishopston, Gower. From there it is a short walk to Pwll Du Bay. Setting off at 2 pm we had about two and a half hours of light before the winter sun set.

The Usual DimExcuses Suspects, Pwll Du to Brandy Cove

The weather has been so wet lately that we had all got new waterproofs and planned for the worst. On the bright side this winter has been very mild. Very, very mild and very wet, from a climate change point of view it is extremely concerning. So far this winter we have had only one frost. From a DimExcuses walkers point of view at least it wasn’t going to be cold.

Darren & Paul, DimExcuses Christmas Walk

Miraculously the rain held off for the whole walk, but it was windy! A strong wind blowing the Christmas cobwebs away. Wind in our faces we went from Pwll Du, around to Brandy Cove.

Brandy Cove

From Brandy Cove we continued on the Wales Coast Path to Caswell Bay. At Caswell Bay it was clear that the recent winter storms had taken their toll with bricks from the sea front strewn across the beach entrance.

StormWatch Caswell

Caswell allowed us a quick comfort break, before we pressed on against the setting sun towards Langland and Rotherslade Bay.

Langland Bay DimExcuses

From Langland and Rotherslade there was just one last home stretch of the Wales Coastal Path to walk around to Limeslade and Bracelet Bay.

Rotherslade Bay DimExcuses

The light was now fading and we were relying on street lights as we finished the walk in the village of Mumbles. It was then just a case of finding a (bull) dog friendly pub and having a real ale and tall stories with friends old and new. The Park was happy to accommodate us and even lit the fireplace to warm up us weary walkers.

Laughs by the Pub Fire

A great success and now a new tradition, we will be undertaking the DimExcuses Christmas Coastal Walk again next year. You should come, DimExcuses.

The Usual Suspects. DimExcuses Big Gower Walk 2015.

DimExcuses Big Gower Walk

It has taken me a month to get these photos up. Every September we take the first Gower bus to Rhossili Bay, and then walk 19 miles on the South Gower coast to the finish in Bishopston. It is like a end of summer ritual, and it is great to see all the usual suspects on the bus each year.

Big Dogs

Starting in Rhossili the sun was low and Rhossili Down cast a long shadow across the bay. A lovely wave coming in too.

Morning Gower Sun

A quick toilet stop, and we head off across the fields towards Port Eynon, soaking up the morning dew in our running trainers. This distance is a bit far for hiking boots. Unless you are really used to your boots, blisters are inevitable. I also advise having two changes of socks.

DimExcuses Dire Wolves

The dew wasn’t a problem for Huw and Sarah in their Gortex Trail Shoes. They also brought their massive Dire Wolves straight out of Game of Thrones.

The Wolves

We were lucky with some lovely sun all day. By the time we powered in Port Eynon the sun had burned away the early morning mist.

Port Eynon bound

An essential full cooked breakfast stop at Port Eynon and then it was back onto the Wales Coast Path.

Wales Coast Path

Making our way to Oxwich Bay along the Gower Coast. It wasn’t long before we were in the Oxwich Bay Hotel, checking in with family and picking up some more walkers.

Oxwich

We waved good bye to Huw, Sarah and the Wolf Pack at Oxwich, and gained Tony and his dog Ness. Of course we also picked up Molly the French Bulldog.

Molly on the Big Gower Walk

It was only a matter of time before Molly was at the front, giving advice as we approached Three Cliffs Bay as she knows it so well.

DimExcuses Walk

This is a fantastic walk, and the huge Oxwich Bay section just has to be barefoot all the way in the Gower seawater.

Ade on the Gower Walk

That Oxwich Bay walk seems to go on forever.

Oxwich Bay Walk

The tide was out at Great Tor for once, so we were just able to splash around it and into Three Cliffs Bay itself.

Splashing around Great Tor, Gower

From Three Cliffs it was a short walk into Pobbles Bay. Molly never more at home than when she is in Pobbles Bay, but a herd of cows on Three Cliffs was a new one even for her!

Cows at Pobbles Bay, Gower

A quick liquid refreshment stop at the Southgate Club and then it was onto the final section of Pennard Cliffs and down into Pwll Du Bay.

Pennard Cliffs

By this point we have seen nearly all the South Gower Coast and its great Bays.

Wales Coast Path Pwll Du

We are a weary bunch at this point, before the final finishing leg.

DimExcuses Walk

But once out of Pwll Du, we arrive in Bishopston and the finish at the Joiners Arms. Good thing the Joiners is a micro brewery, because we deserve a pint of Three Cliffs Gold after nine hours and 19 miles walking.

DimExcuses Walk Finish, the Joiners Arms

Another year gone, another summer ended, the seventh Big Gower Walk completed. I expect to see you all there next year, DimExcuses.

The Keri Caves by Speed Boat. It is all Greek to me 7. Zante 2015.

Keri Caves Zante

It has taken some time , but this is my final post on my recent trip to Zante, Greece. I have already posted-

It is all Greek to me 1 – Zante Dawn

It is all Greek to me 2 – Jump in the Pool

It is all Greek to me 3 – Banana Beach

It is all Greek to me 4 – Pedalos and Planes

It is all Greek to me 5 – Things we saw in the Sea

It is all Greek to me 6 -Things we saw on the Reef

It was a great holiday, as you can see from the posts above, but I have left the best until last Keri Caves.

Kapetanios Bretania

One of the best ways you can see Keri Caves in Zante is by chartering a speedboat. We chartered two, one with a local pilot so we knew where to go, and one piloted by Mark Crimmings from our party (or as the official pilot called him Kapetanios Bretania).

The last journey of Katetanios Bretania

I was on the official pilot’s boat. He knew the caves so well, zooming in and then back throttling so that we stopped inches from the cave walls.

Cave Exploring

It was really thrilling and the caves are fantastic.

Keri Caves

The water is so blue against the white rocks.

Cave Zante

We anchored up on a shingle bank and explored those blue bays a bit more. The water is really salty which gives you great buoyancy but makes it difficult to dive deep because of the pressure of that denser water.

From the Keri Caves it was then a short speedboat trip to Turtle Island. It even looks like a turtle!

Once on Turtle Island, landing is a bit of a challenge, but we got there in the end.

Turtle Island Ahoy!

Forget the Caretta Caretta turtles on Turtle Island, it has a floating ice-cream van!

What a great way to end the DimExcuses Greek Odyssey with such a fantastic boat trip.  So there it is my final photos from Zante, Greece, basically it was all Greek to me, DimExcuses.

Who wants to do the 10k twice? Swansea Half Marathon 2015

Swansea Half Marathon

Me, Sharon and Molly are big fans of the Swansea Bay 10k. I even wrote a km by km guide to running the Swansea  Bay 10k that you can read here.  So I was quite excited to get down Swansea bay this Sunday (14/06/15) to see the second Swansea Half Marathon.

Swansea Half Marathon 2015

That is almost two 10K put together, 12 miles!  It takes in the whole of the Swansea Bay 10k route and a whole lot more.

Banana Man

Molly, Sharon and I where at our usual spot under the speed camera on the Mumbles road on the way down and running over to the Blackpill bridge to catch the runners on the way back.

I have been spectating there since 2008! You can read about the 2014 Swansea Bay 10k here, and the 2013 Swansea Bay 10k here.

Even though this was the Swansea Half Marathon there were lots of familiar faces from the blogs above and some new faces. Anwen Davies and the Superman T-Shirts team seemed in good spirits! There was a definite superhero theme this year.

Swansea University’s Chris Marshall was also making the jump up to half marathon with ease too.

Bad Days Make Good Photos. Three Cliffs & Pobbles, May 2015.

Sand Dune Molly

It has been miserable end to May, apparently caused by El Nino. Today was no exception, with a wet morning and a gusting hard onshore wind ensuring no one in wild west Wales was going to have a good day surfing.

Three Cliffs Bulldog

So Molly and I headed out to Gower for our usual loop of Three Cliffs Bay and Pobbles Bay.

Molly Three Cliffs

There was quite a swell coming in and that wind was whipping it up, making the Gower coast look wild and rugged.

Wild & Rugged Pobbles Bay

These pink flowers were bravely blooming on the cliff edge contrasting with the barren limestone. Just like the primeroses in April, the bulbells are now starting to wilt away, leaving these pink blooms to take the spotlight.

Pink Coast Flowers, Pobbles, Gower.

Molly was less interested in the flowers or surf, finding some smells to investigate. It was a case of talk to the bum because the face ain’t listening.

Speak to the bum, because the face ain't listening.

She was all over the cliffs like a mountain goat, surveying the incoming tide swelling Three Cliffs river and filling the valley.

High Tide Three Cliffs, Gower

It wasn’t long until this French Bulldog was distracted by a stick though.

Three Cliffs Stick

Some nice photos but it wasn’t as nice as it looked. That gusty wind was cold and annoying. My hat blew off twice. But you have to make the most of a bad day and get out and about, DimExcuses.

 

 

Rhossili Bay, Gower, DimExcuses Beach Guide.

Rhossili Bay, Gower, DimExcuses Beach Guide

Voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the World, Rhossili Bay is standing toe to toe with Three Cliffs Bay in the fight for the title of the best view in Gower.  This Welsh beach is an essential tourist visit.  The West Coast of the Gower Peninsular is one massive beach with miles of sand between the village of Rhossili in the South and the village of Llangenith in the North.

Walk Rhossili Bay

Rhossili and Llangenith are often considered separate beaches even though they join in the middle and are essentially the same bay.  This is because it is so difficult to get between the two villages. Rhossili is the culmination of the South Gower Road (make sure you turn off at Scurlage, or you will end up in Port Eynon), and Llangenith is the culmination of the North Gower Road.  You have to drive back into the middle of Gower to get between the two.

DimExcusesSurf

On foot getting between Rhossili and Llangenith is a forced march across the beach or a trek over Llanrhidian Down.  It is the remarkable contrast between the beach and Llanrhidian down that makes the spectacular view. I took all these pictures this Surftember (as I am calling it as we had great swell after great swell sculpted by off shore winds). This is probably the best I have seen Rhossili Bay with blue line after blue line of perfect surf coming in like corduroy.

Blue Lines Rhossili

Rhossili is often overlooked as a surf beach, because basically people are lazy! It is one hell of a trek down, and more importantly back up from that beach. Throw in a surfboard to carry and it is quite a challenge. Not a beach for carrying your Stand Up Paddle (SUP) board!

Rhossili Bay Path

The excuses start with claims that Rhossili will be half a foot smaller in terms of surf compared to Llangenith. I think this is a sacrifice worth making for a better shape wave and an escape from the hardcore paddle out Llangenith is famous for.

Surf Rhossili

What makes Rhossili fantastic is that it is a great day out for all the family. You can drive right to the top of the beach. This makes those views accessible to people of all ability and mobility. The coastguard station is a short flat walk and gives you great views of Worms Head.

Worms Head, Rhossili Bay

There is everything you need on the cliff without the tough trek to the beach. There is the Worms Head Hotel, a pub that does great food and has some local real ales for enjoying in the beer garden, or there is the Bay Bistro too if you are more latte than lager.

Bay Bistro

There is a public toilet and even showers for after you have surfed. Though the showers are always ice cold, they are a great facility to make sure you get all that sea salt off you and your wetsuit. Here are some more pictures.

So there you have it, the DimExcuses Beach Guide to my favorite surf beach and adopted local break, Rhossili Bay, Gower. Well worth a visit, DimExcuses.

Sun Runners. Swansea Bay 10K 2014.

Swansea Bay 10K

Swansea Bay 10K is one of the most rated road races in the UK. The venue, the organisation, the atmosphere and view combine with an almost horizontal course that make it a road and fun runners favorite. Add to that a big dollop of Sun and another glorious mild September day which we are having at the moment and you get a classic race to remember.

Swansea Bay 10K Jane & Stu

The Mumbles road was closed to accommodate the full field of 3000 runners, including Jane Richards and @stukulele. This guy was in front at 2km. I don’t know his name, look it up in the running mags, I document the ‘have a go heroes’.

Swansea Bay 10k race leader 2km

He was closely followed by this lot! Chris Kent is in there somewhere.

Swansea Bay 10K Pack

The pack included, what I am guessing is a beach wheelchair?

At 5km the runners leave Mumbles Road and run back in Swansea Bay itself on Swansea Promenade. Andrew Davies is running super fast these days, and has just come back from doing his first Ironman race. Luckily I saw his hat coming, usually he is moving too quick for a good photo.

Swansea Bay 10K Andrew Davies

Here is Mark Grosney running as a pace maker. Great to see pace makers as an addition to this race, invaluable for runners to make sure that they don’t go too fast, too early.

Chris Kent made sure he got in the forefront of this photo.

The race for me isn’t over until I see the Macmillan Mug guys. In today’s Sun their effort was even more Herculean than normal. Go guys, we love the mug.
