Foggy And Hangliding

30 Dec

Husb and I met up with some friends today for a good walk down at Rhossili, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and a short drive from where we live. I took a brown paper sketchbook and some conté crayons to have a bit of a scribble. It was windy, cold and damp which didn’t make it easy to draw en plein air, so I stopped after a quick sketch. We walked down the steep path to the beginning of the causeway to the islands, which were cut off by the tide and then clambered back up the hillside. It was really foggy when we arrived but it lifted and some people took to hangliding above the huge beach.

      Oh it’s gorgeous. It’s got everything. The land is mostly owned by the National Trust so there’s a shop there and a big car park. Vast beach to one side of the car park, Worm’s Head to the other and a strenuous walk up Rhossili Downs behind the village to ancient stone burial chambers. A pub, two nice cafes, a very old church, lovely place.

      It’s stunning. And the location has been in Doctor Who and Torchwood too.
