Looking back on 2013
Oxwich bay is situated on the Gower in South Wales. I find its one of the best beaches to visit in the summer months as dogs are allowed on the beach at all times.
Our first visit this year was in the middle of June. This is late for us but due to our unusual weather this year as well as myself having bouts of illness we just hadn’t got here.
having parked the car right on the sea front we first called into the new cafe’/restaurant that had only been opened this year. It sits right by the beach and seating outside had a grand view of the beach. being a Friday there were not many folk around. Just how we liked it.
Our small group, my son, his girl friend and the dogs Spotty and Ruby, walked along the sand for about ten minutes before heading up into the sand dunes. Known as Oxwich Nature Reserve. it is a place of outstanding beauty and well worth a visit especially when the wild flowers are in bloom. There are rare plants too.
Once in the sand dunes Spotty, my dog, took the lead and everyone followed her up and down the slopes until we got back to the car and ate our first picnic of the year!
Here are the photos of the flowers found en route.
I cannot remember the names of all the flowers but maybe you do?
