After leaving Gelli Aur Country Park, we decided to take a detour via Pembrey Country Park, and its glorious eight-mile long beach, Cefn Sidan. I was utterly amazed by Pembrey Country Park. It has fantastic facilities, and it's absolutely gorgeous. The beach is incredible. It's vast, and so clean. I saw none of the litter that scars so many of Gower's beaches.
On the subject of Gower, Cefn Sidan offers fantastic views towards North Gower and Worm's Head. I could also see Cefn Bryn, Rhossili Down, plus Llanmadoc and Whiteford Sands.
Anyone have any idea what this puffy thing is? I thought it was some kind of shell, but when I prodded it, it was so brittle and fragile, it fell apart. Is it animal, vegetable or mineral?
Although these images don't show them, I could see hang-gliders in the distance, taking off from Rhossili Down.
Jake found plenty to amuse himself. I'll have to once more confess my ignorance about marine life because I have no idea what the thing he's playing with is called. It seems to be a clump of some kind of maritime plant-life. Whatever they're called, Jakey kept finding these strange, brain-like objects scattered around the beach, and took great delight in ripping them to shreds.
Shortly afterwards, the temperature started to drop, so we decided it was time to head home. Unfortunately, Jake started to limp again, so I carried him back to the car, anticipating a trip to the vet. He slept all the way home, and seems fine again, now. I'll keep an eye on him, and if he starts to limp again, I'll take him to the vet.
