Day 033 : Rhossili – Crofty

Today I will see a contrast between the sandy beaches of the South and West Gower  and the salt marshes of North Gower.b_033_070_Rhossili_BayI am looking forward to the 3 mile walk along the sands of Rhossili Bay, but before that I start with a por of tea and fruit scone at the Bistro overlooking the beach.

There are lots of shells, driftwood, rope, netting even tyres as I walk along the beach. After rounding Llangennith Burrows I get treated to another beach walk along Broughton Bayb_033_075_Rhossili_Bay_Beach_DriftwoodOff Whiteford Point out in the middle of the estuary, there is a cast iron lighthouse, the only one left in Britain.

As I walk along the salt marshes near Llanrhidian, I meet up and chat with Larry and Andrea who were sat enjoying the view. They insisted that I sat sat down with them and offered me a Snickers bar, coffee and even sandwiches. They were very insistant so I accepted the Snickers bar, which was rock hard and the coffee. What they did not know was that I did not have my own flask of coffee that day, as I had run out the day before, so it was very much appreciated, so thanks.b_033_085_Crofty_PoniesThe walk into Crofty was along open roads with wild ponies grazing on the salt marshes.
