Wales Coast Path Day 12 Penclawdd - Burry Port

Today was a running day as we're both due to run the Manchester marathon in a few weeks. Our 16 mile run today ran around the Loughor estuary in spectacular sunshine. We followed the Millennium Coastal Path all the way to the splendid Flanagans cafe at North Dock where the views over the sandy estuary are gorgeous. We later creaked our way onto the little town of Burry Port before letting the train return us to Gowerton. A whole day done for 3 hours of pain! 

Wales Coast Path Day 11 Rhossili - Penclawdd

A murky day saw us leave the spectacular clifftop village of Rhossili and head north below the imposing Rhossili Down to the sand dunes, or burrows, of Llangennith and Broughton. Here we turned inland to begin our two day round of the Burry Inlet, or Loughour Estuary, that separates Gower from the Carmarthenshire coast. The former cockling village of Penclawdd, some 19 miles later, proved our end point for the day. The night was spent at Eastern Slade Bunkhouse, near Oxwich, a splendidly luxurious spot, excellent vale for money.


March in Mid Wales

March here began with unprecedented snow resulting in us being house-bound for four days! This is the River Wye with ice floating upon it.
