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 and we continue our search for every geocache hidden on the Gower. Tired from triathlon training but taking advantage of both the weather and the low tide we visit Port Eynon to chase a single geocache.
Rare, spring sun and warmness so we're out for more geocaching (well, out walking by the sea but we might as well grab this geocache that we seem to have missed). Whitford Point on the Gower.
This week we're out on the cliffs at Southgate on the Gower, trying to find a bunch of geocaches that would link up our collection of smiley faces on the geocaching map (marking found caches) on this part of the coast. Great, spring weather for a change! The dolphins seem to like it too.
Back to geocaching this weekend but it's a bit breezy in South Wales so we hid in the woods. We went hunting for some great caches, and found something unexpectedly creepy!
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.
We're trying to find all of the hidden geocaches on the Gower, so last weekend we went back to Pwlldu Bay and found some dolphins (or porpoise), some geocaches, 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 geocaching outing, again to the far end of the Gower, up on Llanmadoc Hill. We grabbed a bunch of caches on a circuit across the hillside with some beautiful, hazy, February views.
After getting most of the north west Gower geocaches, to link up our string of smiley found cache icons with the south coast we went to Rhossili and out to the Worm, Fall Bay, Mewslade Bay and the cliffs in between to hunt for four coastal caches with some of the best views in Wales.
