OMG the weather is amazing let’s get outside and do everything.
It’s a frozen, sunny weekend morning and the surf will be good. Unfortunately everybody else thinks the same thing, so we’ll surf further along the beach where us surfing noobs can have a bit of space. It’s not so sheltered and a lot harder to get out to the waves here. Kim has a fear of the sea yet she’s started sea kayaking and surfing and wants to get over this fear.
Finally the winds have dropped for an amazing British bank holiday weekend so we’re back out in the kayaks for a couple of paddles around the cliffs of the Gower, looking at the climbing crags from another perspective.
We paddle from Port Eynon around Culver Hole, Paviland, Mewslade Bay and Giant’s Cave to Fall Bay, and then a couple of days later we go from Llangennith across to the Rhossili cliffs underneath all the climbers, cross to the Worm’s Head and out to it’s furthest point, watching the seals.
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?
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!
