My last stage of my coastal walk along the marsh road of North Gower.
In part one of this walk from Llanmadoc to Llanrhidian I walk along the edge of the salt marshes of north Gower coast and find a dark story from the Second World War.
My walk to Whiteford Point. This is seen by many as the wildest and most remote part of Gower, on its furthest northern tip.
Gower boasts two gems that most visitors never see. They are Three Chimneys, a set of sea arches, and a massive rock pool known as Blue Pool.
A circular walk across Rhossili Downs taking in the spectacular views of Rhossili Bay and Worms Head.
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.
