An Indian Summer’s afternoon in Wales

WITH the weather in Swansea today as pleasant as it was in southern Italy last week, The Current Mrs Feeney, The Daughter Who Left (But Returned) and I went for a walk this afternoon in Langland – one of the several bays on the outskirts of the city.

As it turned out, we weren’t alone.

    1. We are lucky to live on the edge of the Gower peninsula – the first part of Britain to be declared An Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty. While writing this, I’ve just made a resolution to photograph all of the peninsula – and post the pics on my blog.

      1. We have never explored that area of Wales, and look forward to experiencing it through your pictures. I like that idea, and may do the same for this area. I come from a small coastal town called Carmel-By-The-Sea, and it’s incredibly beautiful as well. My parents still live there, and we visit often. You’ve given me an idea for a few posts. Thank you!

      2. I am deeply and profoundly impressed! Bob Dylan allegedly slept in the house at the bottom of our street once. That’s about as close as I’ve got to fame. Oh, and I was in school with the Archbishop of Canterbury. Though he wasn’t the leader of the Church of England at the time 🙂
