Llansteffan walk part II
I'm afraid this will be a rather sketchy post as I have been awake half the night and out all day (doing the driving too), so I am feeling a bit whacked now. Anyway, this is the turn-around area - Wharley Point.
The entire beach looked like this - lots of little Cockle shells (empty ones) littered all over the beach. This area is vast at low tide and is and has been for a long time, the place where people come to pick cockles to sell in the town (and further afield too these days).
The top tower of Llansteffan Castle is just in sight. I chose, rather than walk back along the beach again, to walk along the little bit of coast path. The photo below shows what it looks like - not too muddy, I was glad to see.
Leaves of Lords & Ladies (Wild Arum Lily) which have been showing their faces for the last few weeks in sheltered spots.
Above: the photo which I had as the Header until ten minutes ago when I chose another view. I always feel a pang when I remove one of my Header photos as they are always my favourite photo until I take one as good (or better).
Above the footpath everything is very overgrown, but an absolute haven for wildlife of course.
The new header photo, only smaller!
Looking out to sea - well, looking out to wet mud really! These are the Cockle Beds (when the season's right). The sea is really out a loooooooooooong way.
Finally some information board photos for you. I hope you can read them OK.
I'll be back after a - hopefully better - night's sleep.
