Worm Head...

Trust the Welsh to come out with such a name. But hey, the place is known as the "land's end" so I guess the name will do. The wind at that place almost blew me off my feet. In fact the photo is taken only after several unsuccessful attempts.

There's this offshore isle that is only accessible during the hours of low tide... which is like a few hours. There's also a guard house right at the edge of the cliff to prevent people (like myself) from trying their luck...

Next up, we'll have my encounters in NY...

Worms Head is a corrupted modern version of its Viking name 'The Wurme' as given by the Vikings when they first came across this majestic twisted land mass bursting out of the sea. It simply means the dragon or serpent, nothing worm-like at all :-)

I love the Gower Peninsular, Rhossili is one of the most spectacular beach front I've been to!

forgot to mention, though the Worm's Head is the most westerly end of the Gower peninsular, the proper 'Land's End' is actually in Cornwall, another lovely place :-)
