My Walk this Week and a Site Migration

My walk this week is from Llansteffan in Carmarthenshire but I must also bring your attention to the movement of the StillWalks website.

Please read this!

Later this week I will be relaunching the StillWalks website and must ask all followers who wish to continue receiving their daily dose of images and sound from the StillWalks blog, to click the link on Thursday’s post and the following days to relocate with me to the new website. 

Thank you to all my existing and new followers.

Along with this relaunch we will be at The Waterside with publisher Management Learning Resources (MLRUK) to promote the new StillWalks package for organisations and individuals. That’s on 7th April from 10 – 12. Details and directions can be found here at The Waterside.

Now on to this week’s walk at Llansteffan. It wasn’t the brightest of days but it was not raining and the atmosphere was quite still. It’s a long time since I was last here but is a place I often think of as an excellent location for walking. It has a large beach, an exciting promontory with a great castle on top and wonderful views.

My Walk this Week 23 – Hill Walk

When I started out on my walk this week I though it promised to be a bright and sunny walk. The mist was already lifting from the valley and my expectations felt fairly well founded. This will be shown at one point to have been optimistic – keep watching through this week.

My photos start about half way up one of our local hills, Graig Fawr, but my full walk rises from a few metres above sea level to 276 metres (905 ft) at the trig point at the highest point.

The photo below, of the view over the Loughor estuary towards the Gower Peninsula, was taken from where the trees are in the first shot and includes the 11 arched railway bridge but not the intrusive red logo of Tesco which I had great pleasure in cropping out, though annoyance at having to do so.

The birds sounded as though they shared my optimism at the stage of my walk – listen below.

Rhosilli Bay

The turning point for my walk along the ridge of Rhosilli Down was a promontory at the western end from which a spectacular view across Rhosilli Bay towards Tenby which was well and truly hidden in the haze – a haze which was fast becoming mist.

It was a good spot to stop and eat my sandwiches and the sounds of wind and sea were only disturbed by a jet fighter on exercise against the horizon – listen to the sound clips below.
