Pobbles Evening High Tide. 17th June 2016.

Pobbles Evening High Tide

I love these long light evenings as we approach the summer solstice. It gives me and Molly, the french bulldog plenty of time to get an evening walk down to Pobbles Bay, Gower.

Pobbles Bay High Tide

There is nothing as good as summer evening at the beach on high tide. And Pobbles Bay has to be one of the best beaches visit on a summer evening. Molly and I often get the beach to ourselves, but I am being to think that the Griffiths family live there as they have been there the last couple of times I have visited Pobbles.

Surf Pobbles

They were even in surfing last night! It is rare to get a surfable wave at Pobbles, but last night there was a cracking fun swell on the push of high tide, squeezing in between the rocks.

Now, if the Griffths are there, then that means that the other Molly will be there too. This Molly is a rescue staffie and that means double Molly trouble as the pair of dogs made the most of the surf.

The DimExcuses Molly was quick to point out though she was happy to share the sand, technically it is her beach.

Pobbles Bay is adjacent to Three Cliffs Bay, so it is easy to get up on the spine of Three Cliffs itself to get some fantastic photos of the iconic cliffs at high tide.

It is a great place to just sit down, chill out and appreciate the rugged beauty of the Gower coast.

The view is equally spectacular looking out at the waves coming into Pobbles Bay.

Pobbles Waves

It looked like a lot of fun riding those summer evening waves.

Molly is always one to appreciate a bit of surf.

Having found our evening sun and surf fix at high tide, it was time for Molly and I to head home, so I will leave you with one last picture of the Jewel of Gower, Three Cliffs Bay.

Spectacular, DimExcuses.

Summer Finally Arrives in Gower. Pobbles Bay, 10th June 2015.

After a poor start to June summer has finally shown up. Sharon, Molly and I are on annual leave so we were lucky enough to get down Pobbles Bay, which was shining in the sun and enjoying a little surf on high tide. It was very different to when I took photos the last time I was here on high tide, which was on a spring evening.

Molly was enjoying the sun and climbing all over rocks, having a good look at the sea. The water was spectacularly clear.

Molly on the Rocks

She has no fear on the limestone cliffs…

…and is equally at home in the sea.

Whatever it takes to get her ball.

Another successful fetch.

The west cliffs of Pobbles Bay give you a very different perspective on the famous three cliffs of Three Cliffs Bay.

She spotted these to kayakers making the most of the high tide in the sun. What a spectacular place for a paddle under the three cliffs.

Molly and I got a quick AONB selfie.

 Sharon and her mum were also soaking up the sun.

Pobbles Bay is spectacular on high tide, but it is amazing with a few waves and the sun too.

Almost enough to make you jump in for a swim.

It has taken me a couple of days to write this as I have been out enjoying the sun, but today the drizzle is back, but I am sure the sun will make another appearence this June and when it does we will be out and about again, DimExcuses.
