We have a visitor this week, and he wants to surf and see the Gower. We can help with that.
I’ve known him for 5 years or so, but I’ve no idea what he looks like.
Kim spent the winter getting strong for climbing and rediscovering her technical skills by bouldering and braving the cold Gower coastline when it stopped raining.
She has been struggling with the steeper climbs so far this year. But how does she do on slabs and less steep climbs?
A bank holiday weekend – what to do? What’s the tide doing?
Hiking, rock climbing and kayaking. All by or in the sea.
After Easter I took some time off work and had lots of time to do the things we like doing! The Gower was quiet again and we went cragging by the sea and kayaking in the sea before storm Hanna hit with her gale force winds.
Also, bluebells in the woods.
Not working. It’s great!
Paddling from Oxwich to Port Eynon and back in a perfect summer sea, passing the wreck of the Solor at low tide in Oxwich Bay that limped back here after being torpedoed by a u-boat in 1945.
Also climbing on packed Easter Rhossili sea cliffs in the sun. The Easter weather was perfect for a long weekend of adventures!
This is something we’ve been waiting for and working towards for a while – starting to explore the Gower coastline from the sea. What trouble can we get into in kayaks in the sea? Learning.
A dry week means some spring cragging outdoors by the sea. Let’s go somewhere new and try a couple of sport climbs that are supposed to be some of the best on the Gower.
I’m actually taking some time off work. For a few days. Kind of. And the sun is out on the Gower! Let’s go!
The weather’s not great but for some reason I though getting into the sea when the Gower was freezing might be an interesting idea. The sea is warmer than the air right now after all. Right?
The mid-life crisis has kicked in and we’re going to attempt to surf. It’s what you do if you live by the Gower – everyone around here surfs! Learning to surf, in Wales, in January. Nuts, surely?
