Swansea Ramblers Walk


Swansea to Mumbles

19th April 2014

Leader: Helen Gough




Helen took us from the Civic Centre in Swansea for a walk along the beach.  This Swansea walk stopped off in Blackpill for coffee at The Junction before resuming our stroll along the Swansea foreshore.  Sunny again today but a bit fresh in the breeze.  Twenty of us enjoyed a relaxing stroll in fine weather and when we reached Oystermouth, some of us ended up in Verdi's for drinks and a pizza!  A few of us caught the Mumbles land train back to Blackpill and walked back from there.  If you'd like to try a walk then do come along and find out what all this Swansea Walking in the great outdoors is all about.  It won't cost you anything to come along and see if walking is for you.  If you get the bug and want to walk or stroll regularly then you can also become a member.  Just ask us about the walks we do when you join us for a Swansea Walk.
