We nipped out for another visit to a local Gower crag to get the kids on some easy routes, which they loved. I rather enjoyed myself too, despite the chilly wind on the belay.
Spring is here, the weather is good, so we're off out to the Gower for the first weekend of rock climbing of the year. There are a few family friendly crags, so we visit West Tor between Oxwich and Three Cliffs Bay, which is on the beach and has a handful of low difficulty routes. But the tide is coming in...
Another sunny day in South Wales. Tired from triathlon training but taking advantage of both the weather and the low tide we visit Port Eynon.
Rare, spring sun and warmness so we're out for more walking by the sea. Whitford Point on the Gower.
This week we're out on the cliffs at Southgate on the Gower. Great, spring weather for a change! The dolphins seem to like it too.
It's a bit breezy in South Wales so we hid in the woods.
I try to run this race every year, and this year I was testing myself, my legs and my hips to see if everything works.
Last weekend we went back to Pwlldu Bay and found some dolphins (or porpoise), and some more great views. We followed the coast path eastwards to Caswell and up into Bishopstone woods.
I managed to take a few days off work while the kids were on a half-term break so we popped across to London to see some dinosaurs, spacecraft and moon rock, and grabbed a few sneaky geocaches while we were there. On the way back we stopped in Cheltenham to see friends and family and went out to place the geocaching trackable that we found last week in an animal friendly location (as requested by the trackable owner) with a very large dog.
Last week we had a cracking outing, again to the far end of the Gower, up on Llanmadoc Hill. We followed a circuit across the hillside with some beautiful, hazy, February views.
