Brandy Cove

Following on from yesterday.............

Yes it does lead to the beach, Brandy Cove in fact.
I'm not sure of the origins of the name but it certainly conjures up images of smugglers unloading barrels of brandy and carrying them up this lane to waiting carts who will take them into Swansea.

This little cave is on the way to the beach.

Was it a place to hide the contraband or it is really a Witches Cave?

Guess where this leads to?

You are walking on the Gower peninsular.

Cosmeston Lakes

These are the reed beds on one of the lakes.
Cosmeston Park is recreational park catering for many tastes.
Please check out the links for more information.
One of my favourites is the medieval village, and the tours of this are well worth it. You are accompanied by a medieval guide, who acts out the role as if he has no knowledge of the modern world. You can imagine how intrigued the kids are when he asks them how they got here and they have to describe what a car / bus is.

Tenby harbour

Posted by Picasa
Tenby is probably the major holiday resort in West Wales.
I have many fond memories of it, as quite a few friends and I worked here, in the hotels, during our school holidays.
The houses alongside the harbour are in the Nash style of architecture and are a big feature of the town.

Boats in the Bay

Posted by Picasa
Some more boats but this time in Cardiff Bay.
The lock gates have seen better days. This is the last area of the Bay that hasn't yet been renovated. When its done the walkway and cycle route will be complete, so you will be able to do a circular tour of the whole Bay area and the barrage.
