Gower Peninsula

Like you were a bird - Explored

After studying hard these last couple of months, I’m planning to devote more time to activities that I enjoy in 2011, starting with photography. Firstly I’ll be investing in a better SLR camera + lenses (hopefully the January sales will prove fruitful), and then will book a short break to a place where I’ve always wanted to visit – The Gower. A few people have mentioned The Gower is absolutely beautiful and perfect for a short break; combining two things I love – walking & nature photography.

After browsing Gower photos on Flickr (these two stunning photos were taken by Geoff Mock, click on photos for a larger view), I can see why it appeals to a photographer. The Gower (Penrhyn Gwyr) is a peninsula on the south west coast of Wales, and in 1956 was designated an area of outstanding natural beauty – it’s not hard to see why!

You will love the Gower.
You must go to Three Cliffs & Rhossili But make sure you also get to Pwll Du. it’s harder to reach but is very beautiful. there’s also a lovely walk down through Bishopston Valley to get to the beach, starting at the Joiners arms pub.
have fun.
Pay a visit to the Three Cliffs cafe at Southgate (lovely homemade food) and make sure you go to Verdi’s in Mumbles for a toasted teacake or one of their fab ice-creams.
