Couple of photo gallery links for you.

Firstly our crack at the Five Peaks Challenge round Dursley and Uley. Not quite as gruelling as the more famous Three Peaks Challenge, but Andy wanted to test out his recently arthroscopied knee, so we though we'd better not tackle anything too hardcore. Ending up, inevitably, in the Old Spot for a few refreshing pints.

Secondly our trip to the Gower over Easter weekend. More specifically to the spectacular Hillend campsite near Llangennith (here, in fact) to test out our lavishly appointed new tent. And very nice too, if a bit unfeasibly huge for two people. Fact of the day: Gower was the first Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty to be designated in the UK (in 1956). Other outstanding things in the area include the fascinating Worm's Head peninsula, and also the Worm's Head Hotel spectacularly situated on the clifftop above. Not the world's greatest pub, to be honest, but it does have a garden out the back with fantastic views up Rhossili beach. On the other hand the King's Head in Llangennith undoubtedly is a great pub. Excellent food and also excellent Rhymney Bitter when we popped in on Easter Monday.
