Today’s tale of the scale was once again a pleasant sight with me touching base at 16st 9lbs – a 1lb down on last week and a continuation of the 1lb yo-yo weight pattern!
I decided to stick with my decision of not training today in order to recharge my batteries and I must be honest – I feel a darn site better for it. I’ll be glad to get back in the saddle tomorrow though, for what is a planned easy session of around 10 miles or so.
So with some spare time on my hands, I mowed the lawn and chopped up some wood we had stored up – which incidentally is now free (it you come and collect it) to anyone who wants to get a bonfire sorted for November 5th! I left Mrs DDWT and DDWT Junior have the dubious honour of going to Tesco’s on a Sunday, which is always a bad move as EVERYONE seems to be in Tesco’s on a Sunday.
The afternoon was spent in much more pleasant surroundings with us going down to Swansea Bay and Mumbles for a spin in the car and walk on the beach. I took quite a few snaps (as usual) and thought I’d share a few of them with you.
The Swansea to Cork ferry in full flow…..
The lighthouse at Mumbles Head, which (when googled) revealed that it was built 1794 to guide ships into Swansea Bay and was originally lit by coal braziers, then by oil lanterns. The lighthouse was automated in 1934.
The new grandstand at St. Helen’s rugby ground – famous for many a great rugby and cricketing occasion. Those of you who remember the old grandstand will be sad to think that so many sporting memories symbolised by it have now gone.
