Went for a walk across Rhossili Down yesterday, and then back across the beach to the Worms Head Hotel ! What a stunning day it was..
As we (me and my good wife Laura) approached the top of the Downs we could see the Para-gliders & Hang gliders preparing for take off. It was a fantastic site, one which you just couldn’t stop looking at. It was intoxicating watching the control these guys had, literally floating inches from ground. In fact one guy spotted me taking photographs and slowly sidled down beside me (without touching down) and took a business card off me. This was off the scale on the cool ‘o’ meter.
By the time we had gotten down off the hill and walked across the beach, some of the gliders had started to land. So I got talking to a couple of them, and it turns out that they work at the Sky diving school in Swansea Airport. Turns out the jump plain was broken down, so the guys being tue adrenaline junkies, decided to go paragliding to get their fix !
Any how here’s a bunch of photo’s from our walk.
