Spring Sunsets in Isolation. Pennard Cliffs March 2020.

Pennard Cliffs

It looks like we have a difficult time ahead, and it isn’t going to end soon. So while I have some time on my hands I am going to give the blog the attention it has long needed.

If you are looking to get your outside fix in these lockdown times maybe have a look down the rabbit hole of the adventures of my girlfriend Sharon and I as we post stuff and nonsense from Wild West Wales with our french bulldog cross Molly.

We headed out in isolation last Friday to get some final spring sunsets before holing up in the house of the foreseeable.

DimExcuses Three Cliffs

Three Cliffs never fails to impress. It is our favorite walk. This time we took the Pennard Cliffs route because we thought it would be the best way to ensure we didn’t meet anyone else and if we did we could easily keep a good distance between them and us.  Molly was obviously looking the other way.

So just as spring starts to spring into life we all find ourselves a bit stuck in. Hopefully this sunset will be enough to tide you over.

Pobbles Bay

Please take a look back on previous blog posts. Highlights include:

The Darth Mannion Beach and Swamp Challenge.

The DimExcuses End of Summer Walk.

Or a lot of surfing with the #Mentro21 Project.

Or you can follow me (DimExcuses) on twitter or instagram. Hopefully you will find something to amuse. But for now make sure you stay in and stay safe, there will be sunsets for us to find after all this, DimExcuses.

 

Take the High Road, Pobbles & Pennard Cliffs. 19th August 2017.

Sometimes you have to change your perspective on things. Usually a quick straight walk down Pobbles Bay, Gower is my go to quick walk for taking my dog Molly to the beach. But I fancied a change and a different view of Pobbles for once.

Pobbles is my favourite beach. You can read my DimExcuses Pobbles Beach Guide here. It is also a beach visited on my classic 5km Pennard Castle, Three Cliffs Bay and Pobbles circular walk. Sometimes it even gets surf!

This was one of those days when it had a surf-able swell. It has been a hit and miss summer, so we decided to make the most of this Sunny Saturday.

We did our usual walk down from Pennard, past Pennard Golf Club, but then climbed out of the bay up to the plateau of Pennard Cliffs to get a different view of the famous Three Cliffs.

Molly is as happy on the limestone rocks of Pobbles as she is on the beach.

Looking back you get a great view of the west side of Three Cliffs and Pobbles Bay in front of it. Just as to get to the top and onto Pennard Cliffs you can also see across to the greens of Pennard Golf Course. Molly stopped for a pose with course behind her…

..before a quick drop and roll.

Molly is always happiest on the Gower Coast. Total adventure french bulldog.

Once the cliffs were climbed we headed back through Southgate village to complete our Pobbles, Pennard Cliffs loop, and as we were passing the Southgate Club, it would be rude not to stop for a pint of Gower Power!

We are definitely making the most of this Gower summer, no matter what the weather, DimExcuses.
