We spent two days on the Gower Peninsula, and one of those we went down to Worm's Head. Worm's Head holds a special place in my husband's heart… Wales was where he had a pivotal period of time. He spent 7 weeks there, during which he grew 7 inches without changing his weight. He hung out with his older cousins and went from the short, fat, insecure kid, to a tall, broad, self-confident teenager. And Worm's Head, for him, holds a sense of power and connection.
When I was back there, 14 years ago, I asked him what he wanted me to bring him back. He asked for a cute little welsh girl and, failing that, a rock from Worm's Head. As it happened, a cute little part-welsh girl came back for him on the plane from England, but my mother also drove me out to Worm's Head, where I picked up a stone to bring back. It still sits on his desk.( Click here for our pictures from the Gower Peninsula )
