Beach stones at Whiteford Sands, Gower, South Wales, UK (1)

The wind-swept expanse of Whiteford Sands in Gower, South Wales, is the final resting place of many interesting objects that include beach stones, seashells, seashore creatures and driftwood. Here are some pictures of just a few of them that I recorded on recent trips.

  1. Don’t they have Olympics nowadays for people with faded aspirations, as well as other disabilities? If not, why not? Anyway, my ambitions never really came out of the chrysalis.

  2. They have Olympic events for all sorts of things don’t they – like synchronised ribbon twirling ang aquabatics? Maybe they will soon have synchronised and solo digital camera manipulation.

  3. Thank you, Steve. Whiteford is a great place – contantly changing too. Devoid of visitors most of the time. Spectacular when spring tides are out – just a narrow channel of water left in the middle of the wide sandy estuary. Amazing at high spring tides when water travels right up over the salt marshes on the Llanmadoc side of the dunes. Fantastic feeling walking around this site of special scientific interest with wild ponies and sheep for company. Always worth a visit.
