South Wales 2017
South Wales is a place neither Sharon or Ren has explored properly. They passed through once a while back but this time they're going to take a proper look and spend a little time there. Let's hope it's as nice as everyone says it is.
Not Even Wales!
With a storm set to cause havoc across the UK is this day the best day to set out on a camping holiday? Maybe not.
Finally Sharon and Ren get themselves out of the house and onto the road. They've set out, but have they got everything?
Exploring Around Tywyn
Mid Wales provides an engaging, gorgeous and sometimes challenging landscape to explore. With all the sea, hills, mountains, valleys and single track lanes that go nowhere, our explorers are exploring.
Bracing Winds And Wobbly Hobbits
Between the rain and the beauty Sharon's riding is creating mixed emotions for her and Ren is getting giddy over a TV programme.
Exploring St Davids - On Foot
It is time to leave the bikes for just one day and set out on foot to explore the tiny city of St Davids. The city is small and pleasant, the cathedral is just sheer delight.
Exploring Around St Davids
In the land of a thousand coves Sharon and Ren are looking into a handful of them. There's a chance Ren's 500 might not be getting out of one of them though.
Is Tenby Really Utopia?
Tenby has been much lauded to both Sharon and Ren but now it's time to see if the reality will live up to the hype. Will Tenby be amazing or an amazing flop?
Exploring Around Tenby
Between the endless cute coves, splendid coastal resorts and curiosities there's time for some field repairs. The big worry now is the forthcoming weather.
Spoiled Rotten In Gower
Sharon is for once actually preying for rain and Ren is wondering if Sharon is going to kill him. What on earth is going on?
Exploring The Gower Peninsula
Considering the day was supposed to be a washout Sharon and Ren get to look around the Gower Peninsula in good conditions. There's only one problem with Sharon's perfect beach - the walk back.
New Friends And Llandovery
While the weather is very much against them Sharon and Ren enjoy the day with new friends and a lot of hot tea. They're heading a little North in South Wales.
Exploring The Brecon Beacons
After yesterday's deluge will the soggy campers get chance to dry out and actually see The Brecon Beacons? Sharon is bleating out some awful sheep puns too.
Epilogue - South Wales 2017
Once again another trip comes to an end and it is time to return to the reality of everyday life. Neither Sharon or Ren are ready for it to be over.

Just read about your South Wales trip and really enjoyed it, not least because it reminded me I when I took my dear old and sadly departed dog Bertie on Rossili beach and he seemed to be completely mesmerised by the vastness of it. At first he didn't know what to do and then he started running around in (more or less) figures of 8 then came and looked at me as if he was saying ""is that what you do?" That was about 15 years ago and we now have another Bertie. Btw our hot tip for a campsite in that part of the world is Eastern Slade Farm at Oxwich, run by a very nice lady called Kate - basic site with a tap and portaloos but only £10 per night. That is for a motorhome so it may be cheaper for a tent. Great views.

I can just imagine a dog seeing such a vast beach for the first time. It could run for hours and still not lose sight of you. It is one heck of a place.
I was watching an old Top Gear the other day and they were on Pendine Sands. I thought it would be fabulous to ride the bike on Pendine or Rhossili but alas I believe you need special permission from various authorities.
I've found the Eastern Slade Campsite's website. I'll add a link if for no other reason to remind myself to look this up as and when I'm next down there. Cheers Mike D

Yes but they're a bunch of prats.
Lookup "Babs" - powered by a 27 litre aero engine. Decapitated the driver sadly.

27 litre engine. I could put one in the 125 frame and probably go the same way as the original driver of "Babs".
