The Gower Peninsula and all it’s beaches await….

A little bit of rain during the night and first thing, but all was clear by the time we left Llandow and the sun was in full swing by the time we got to Gowerton. We were soon in and settled, so decided to enjoy a sunny walk from the site. Encouraged by the fact that the coastal path runs by the entrance, we decided to follow its lead. However the first mile or so was roadside along a little used lane with vast areas of marshland to one side of us. Then the path ran alongside parkland and past the remains of Loughor Castle.

A short way on from here was Loughor Bridge over the very tidal estuary and lucky for us, a small tidal beach (mostly sandy) with easy access to the river for Poppydog to cool down – as we were really very hot by now.

I was sort of tempted but not – I need clear waters! Pretty view of the mountains beyond the estuary.

On the way back we popped into this little church with a view.

Two thoughts of the day:

I really am very indecisive when it comes to choosing a pitch but I pulled it off this time!

Poppydog has already decided that the best action takes place on the other side of the van – which she can keep an eye on from the shade under the van!
