Had to pop over to Swansea for some meetings. Now I had the choice of having an excellent lunch there with a bunch of very sombre and serious professors or take photographs in a wet windy cold damp place on the sea shore. Guess what I went for? Anyway, here are the photographs and here is the slideshow with more photos and with higher resolution.
I walked from the station, down to the breakwater on the right of the photograph and then down the beach and them up into the University of Wales and Swansea
A zigzag staircase
Signs on the beach and on the road. What on earth is Mumbles? Look on the right hand side sign. Anyway, its a place name in sunny Wales.
There is this slip bridge, well, the remains of it. There is an identical structure on the other side of the road. The slip bridge stood for 90 years to allow people to cross over the road and the famous Mumbles Railway but was taken down in 2004. I never got to see it.
Lovely ironmongery on the railings.
On the way back, the towers were no longer cloud covered. Typical sod’s law.
