Gloom.

On some nights, the steelworks on the horizon in Port Talbot, light up the clouds with a fiery glow (like Mordor from the Lord of the Rings). It’s eerily beautiful, you can see flames reaching high into the sky. Last night, it was full aglow, quite something to look at and I was very much enjoying the view.

I was so busy staring, I very nearly collided into a man holding his small dog high on his head cursing my little evening day dream and accusing *Bonnie, (on the lead, by my side, looking as puzzled as myself) of wanting to eat his small furry thing.

I muttered an apology along the lines of “So sorry, miles away, lovely hat” and scurried away.

Cue a fox running across our path and I really wondered where I was, Mad Max or Swansea.

Swansea Angie.

Swansea in a pandemic, Mad Max is little too sensible right now.

*Being a big sized dog, she quite often gets accused of wanting to eat smaller dogs but she’s actually a huge fan of dogs smaller than herself as she can play Queen.

  1. When I used to walk with the dog down by the Esplanade on the Wirral, I used to like the oil refinery at Stanlow for the same reason, it’s huge flame burning in the darkness on the horizon… 😉
    And regarding your fox:
    “As a spirit animal, the fox is believed to reveal its true talents during times of uncertainty and great change. With its heightened sense of awareness and attentiveness, the fox is incredibly adaptable. In essence, the fox also represents mental responsiveness and is a great symbol of strength during times of change.”

  2. When I was young I lived in Brynmill and from my bedroom window I could see from Mumbles to Port Talbot and I remember lying in bed at night and seeing the works lighting up the sky.
    I’m pleased to know you can still see them .

  3. People don’t take the time to understand ‘dog language’. It isn’t hard to learn the difference between a dog who wants to play and one that wants to do some harm.
    Hang in there.
