End of the Earth.

Left: “I am with you always” in the sand.
Middle Top: Heading back to the bus stop from the beach.
Right Top: The graveyard outside a church. As promised, Mrs. Thornburgh.
Right Middle: Worm’s Head from one of the highest points on the hillside.
Right Bottom: Me on the beach in front of Worm’s Head.

I headed to the Gower once again today, deciding to climb the hills (Right Middle: You can see the hills on the left) and walk on the beach instead of going out to Worm’s Head like last time. Between a packed lunch at the top, taking jumping pictures with a self-timer, accidentally sliding down a very muddy part of the hillside, getting the tiniest and most “milk-y” milkshake I’ve ever had, and writing in the sand, it turned into a six-hour excursion. The Gower Peninsula always makes me feel like I’m at the end of the earth because it just drops off into endless sea.

If you’re curious, I climbed the hills and went all the way out to the town that is directly behind my head in the September 7 picture. It was such a good experience, but I was so tired at the end of the day that I wasn’t paying attention and stepped into some foul-smelling mud (who knows if it was just mud . . .) and fell asleep on the bus and missed my stop. Haha.

“And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” ~Matthew 28:20b

Love the photo of the cemetary. Any idea how old some of the headstones were?

I’m glad you like them. I looked at the dates, and there were some dating back to the early 1800s. But none much older, I don’t think.
