The second part of my long walk along the Gower coast path from the Knave to Worms Head and Rhossili.
Port Eynon is my favourite Gower place to visit in summer because it always has plenty of space on the beach, a shallow sea which warms up in the British sun and a wonderful gift shop full of the sort of junk that is absolutely necessary on a beach holiday (kites, snorkels, body boards, flip-flops, rock, postcards), a surf shop, ice cream kiosks and best of all not one but two fish & chip shops.
I visit the church of St Illtyd and Oxwich Head. The Gower, although beautiful is full of natural hazards and some supernatural ones too.
This part of my walk sees me breaking all my rules. But that’s OK. The thinking goes, if you are paralyzed by anxiety and a fear of failure: “Just do it, badly.” So I did it badly today but I did it.
Three Cliffs Bay never fails to disappoint. It does not matter how many times I see it. It is particularly spectacular at high tide in the morning light. It is probably the one beach I have visited most often and certainly painted most often, on the Gower coast.
My walk along the Gower coast line visits Pwll Du and Hunts Bay, two secluded places on the South Gower coast.
My journey on the Gower coastal path continues at Caswell Bay and then on the Brandy Cove.
Photos, words and paintings inspired by my Gower coastal walk from Limeslade, Langland Bay and ending at Caswell Bay.
The Gower Peninsula juts out westwards into the Bristol Chanel. Its about 17 miles in length and 8 miles width at its widest point. I am planning to walk around its coastline, approximately 38 miles in length, maybe a bit less. I am starting at Mumbles.
I am delighted to have been featured in April’s edition of Welsh Coastal Magazine as part of their ongoing series “Inspirations” on contemporary artists in Wales.
