As it was Bank Holiday Monday it seemed sensible to avoid the honey pots of the coast and popular hills and so The Navigator decided on a small hill close to Swansea, Kilvey Hill.
We parked near the White rock heritage site and then headed up through the woods and up onto the top of Kilvey Hill. Here we had good views down onto Swansea and across Swansea Bay to the Mumbles lighthouse and eastwards towards Port Talbot and the steelworks.
Following a coffee break we continued east and downhill towards our lunch stop at the visitor centre of Crymlin Bog.
It was lane work from here through Port Tenant and St Thomas, stopping regularly to collect blackberries. Just past St Thomas our walk took us into the marina area of Swansea, onto the beach for coffee and then back to the car.
