Saturday Photohunt - Curvy

Swansea Bay ends on its west side with Mumbles Head. It’s thought that the village of Mumbles got its name from the French, mamelles, for breasts because of the appearance of the two small islands at the end of the headland. They’re very curvy.

We had a really nice holiday a few years ago, we stayed in a barn in Mumbles, it was February and the beaches were empty :0) Thanks for reminding me :0)

Winter's the best time really - none of those old tourists everywhere!

Great choice Liz although it gives me teh shudders to remember getting caught by teh tide while on a school field trip and wading across to land in waist deep water. Happy weekend

That's a really beautiful photo Liz and a great pick for the theme. There are some mountains in the USA called the Grand Teetons which means big tits in French.
I posted my photo at Welshcakes as well so leave a comment for her too will you? It has a Sicilian connection
