March 12th: Port Talbot to Black Pill [well, close to!]

March 12th: Walked from Port Talbot to close to Black Pill.  Beautiful day to walk andRichardLewis guided by David Smith of Neath – Port Talbot Ramblers! Photos include gravestone of Richard Lewis in Port Talbot, Dylan Thomas statue in Swansea, a rescue dog in training on Swansea’s Tawe River, our guide David meeting his brother on the walk [quite accidentally], and ‘bumping’ into Ken Smith again. We met Ken on the coastal path last week. He is 82 and was riding his bike this time!

P.S. re: Richard Lewis ‘Many of us know of him as Dic Penderyn, the martyr of the Merthyr Riots. When executed in Cardiff, his final words were, “O Arglwydd. Dyma gamwedd.” Oh Lord. This is an injustice.” You can read more of his story on the web’. Comment courtesy of Huw T Williams.

Start point tomorrow will be at the parking lot at the junction of Sketty Lane and Hwy 4067! Finish point will be at the parking lot close to the coastal path in Southgate.

    Thanks for the photo of Richard Lewis’ gravestone. Many of us know of him as Dic Penderyn, the martyr of the Merthyr Riots. When executed in Cardiff, his final words were, “O Arglwydd. Dyma gamwedd.” Oh Lord. This is an injustice.” You can read more of his story on the web.
    Well done, Mona and David, on your excellent progress.
