Gower & Brecon

November 21st, 2012

Armed with T’Will’s pessimistic weather forecast we journeyed to deepest darkest South Wales last weekend in the hope of finding some dry rock and cloud free views. We left bright and early on Saturday morning and drove to the Brecon Beacon national park where we hiked up Pen Y Fan and Corn Du and saw some spectacular views from the top. It was very much four seasons in one day with sun, snow, rain and a lot of mud thrown in for good measure but a good day was had by all. After the usual night at the pub we arose early to catch the low tide down on the Gower Peninsula. The day promised glorious sunshine so the walkers were dropped off at Rhossili and raced against the tide to scramble across a tidal causeway over to Worm’s Head Island. After making it back to dry land safely, they did a cliff top walk to a rather good chippy in Port Eynon. The climbers did several good routes on the golden sands of Three Cliffs Bay and although our feet got a bit wet, we managed to make it back to the chippy in one piece. Many thanks to everyone who came along and who helped out!gower12_2gower12_1
