How the weather can change in a week. Last Monday, as I walked to Merthyr Mawr, the sun was high in the sky and it was very warm. Wednesday’s walk was in the rain and slightly cooler. On Friday, it was neither wet or cold, perfect weather for a walk but as you will see below, there were plenty of clouds over Ogmore Castle.
Lovely walk first thing this morning. At three miles I thought about climbing the ‘Big Dipper’ sand dune at Merthyr Mawr – decided it was a dune too far!
At four miles, Ogmore Castle in the sunshine
The Peacock was feeling brave as he came to say hello
A great start to the day!
On Wednesday, 27.5.2020 I completed my longest morning walk, during lockdown. At 6.58 miles my route took me down Gypsy Lane and on towards Merthyr Mawr. As I continued towards the Stepping Stones, the Castle looked good with the early morning blue sky.
The Horses we’re enjoying their morning water at the stepping stones.
The Peacock, as always, was guarding his keepers back lawn.
Today, Thursday 28.5.2020, I decided it was time to retrieve the bike from the garage. A 6.1 miles cycle to the stepping stones and a short detour to the sand dues too. I noticed there were quite a few cars parked along side the narrow road leading to Merthyr Mawr, more than during previous times over the last few weeks. Is lockdown coming to an end? Hopefully not before WAG say it is!!
I got there in the end!
But then fell in😂
So much safer to paddle on your knees!
A great afternoon at Margam Park.
It looked like it could be a great sunset but the cloud got in the way😬😂
Wonderful sky after sunset tonight.
Early morning (well about 10am) dip into the sea!
Different phases of the sunset last night. From the sun just above, on and just before falling below, the horizon.
Look what I found to play! Zafiris, the hotel owner, listened to my comments last year and his introduced a guitar to the dining room.
