Yesterday we met up with our daughter's partner's parents at Llansteffan Beach, and had a splendid walk along the sands. It was not without some moments of pondering though . . .
Above and below. This amazing beach "crop circle" was perfectly regular and appeared to have been done by a heavy rake. The incoming tide appeared not to have affected it overly as it has been there a couple of days apparently.
Who did it, and why, we can only conjecture . . .
Looking across the Towy Estuary over the Pembrey headland, and beyond, the rising land of the Gower peninsula.
The headland at the end of Scotts Bay.
Looking back towards the Gower again.
What a grand place to live - overlooking the beach at Scott's Bay.
Looking across to the more modern end of Ferryside.
A conundrum. This "standing stone" does not appear on the Sites and Monuments Record, and I can only assume was possibly something to do with marking the ferry crossing to Ferryside, which is almost directly opposite.
Looking up the Estuary towards Cwmbury.
Too lazy to look it up, but I think it's Sea Lavender. It's certainly "Sea" something or other!
