This year’s camping trip with our friends (mums and kids, plus 2 token dads), was to the Gower in Wales. We were camping right above Three Cliffs Bay which is stunning…but a painful walk back up from the beach even without all your camping gear.
There’s a choice of route down to the bay. We decided to go via the river and stepping stones which was lovely. Then it was a long slog over to near the water where we met the rest of our friends. When the tide comes in you can’t use the stepping stones but have to go back up a steeper route to the campsite. N and I went via the longer way as we went back earlier than the others. Let’s just say it didn’t feel easy at all and we needed several stops. For 2 days afterwards I could still need my calf muscles burning!
