Swansea Ramblers Walk


Southgate Evening Walk

31st July 2014

Leader: Andrew Morgan




The summer sunshine that had been with us for weeks today disappeared into heavy showers on and off all day.  The rain magically stopped as we drove into the car park at Southgate and it stayed dry throughout this Gower walk.  Thirteen of us enjoyed an evening Gower stroll and thought of the others who hadn't turned up because of the rain in Swansea!  A Gower walk in the evening is a lovely way to finish the day and unwind after work.  Some of us then went back to Bishopston for a Social in the Joiners Arms.  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.
