Ynyslas Skies 5

Bees and Moths

Saturday morning was a lovely affair. Pretty chilly mind you with the temperature dropping overnight to 10ºC but the morning skies were huge with wispy clouds first thing. We’d put the moth trap out so once Morgan was up we had a quick look through the catch. There was nothing unusual but we haven’t had...

Pokémon Go is all the rage at the moment and we’ve jumped on the bandwagon with it. Mind you, we managed to tie it in with a full day of digital treasure hunting on Saturday. To start with we were trying to gain a geocaching souvenir by doing a geocache that had at least 10...

Aira Force

Although we didn’t finish day 3 of our canoe build until about 4pm, it was a nice day so we decided to drive to Aira Force on the far side of Ullswater for a little walk. We went via Pooley Bridge, the location if some serious flooding over winter and therefore of a temporary bridge to keep...

Geocache No. 700

This one almost slipped by unnoticed, but it has just come to my attention that the geocache that I did on top of Moel y Garn in a howling gale was geocache number 700 for us. At least it’ll be one I won’t forget in a hurry I guess. Not only were the conditions pretty...

Winter Returns – Moel y Garn

Well, the forecast was correct. After what was a lovely day on Good Friday, Saturday was a washout, a very windy washout as well. I still wasn’t feeling like a triathlete, but decided that I should probably go for a run or at least a walk up a hill. Anna and Morgan wanted to go...

Sunday Morning Social Ride

Seeing as I can’t swim at the moment and therefore don’t go to the pool after my early morning Sunday bike ride, I thought I’d try for a Sunday morning social ride instead. There are a few groups that ride around here on a Sunday morning so rather than leave the house at 5:30am and...

Geocaching Records – 2015

I think 2015 may have been our best year yet as far as geocaching records go. We’ve just finished the year off with two fairly quick and easy geocaches in a very wet and muddy Penglanowen Woods near Nanteos Mansion. None of the geocaches themselves were that notable but it’s a lovely little woodland than...
