The Wrekin

After a couple of Days with Steve and Biddy – first in Ironbridge and then at the Commonwealth Games, we spent another night at theirs and then had to head our separate ways. Anna was off to the Isle of Man to visit her Mum so I dropped her at the station so that she...

A Day at the Commonwealth Games

We had an exciting day at the Commonwealth Games on Thursday. We went with Steve and Biddy so spent Wednesday with them too so that we could then travel in to see some of the action on Thursday. Commonwealth Games Tickets We had originally thought of getting tickets for the cycling in the Velodrome. Fortunately...

An Afternoon in Ironbridge

We had a day at the Commonwealth Games earlier this week. It was Anna’s idea to go see some of the action. So, when she mentioned it I suggested we do so with Steve and Biddy as they live out that way and we don’t see them often enough. A quick message and they said...

Wild Windsurfing

It may not look like a summer’s day in August from the video clip below but the water was warm, the air temperature was warm and the wind was blowing. All of which led to a top notch windsurf session off the seafront. Maxed out on a 5.7m all the time. A 5.0m would have...

Record Breaking Honey Harvest

Beekeeping has always been an interesting hobby for us. We never had any intentions of making loads of honey and selling it for a profit. A good job really as Ynyslas isn’t the best place to keep bees and our honey harvest rarely produces much honey. If it were a money-making scheme we would have...

A Passing Front

We had a classic Frontal System pass over us earlier today (around 11am). After the hot temperatures and calm conditions it was suddenly all change. The temperature (seen as the green line in the chart above) suddenly dropped like a stone. It fell by over 10ºC in the space of half an hour. The Windspeed...

Scorchio 2022 – Day 3

We didn’t quite break the all time temperature high here yesterday. We got close though. The all time high was 33.7ºC and we ‘only’ made it to 33.4ºC on the Borth and Ynyslas Weather Station. That was hot enough for us. It’s always a little cooler by the sea of course and just inland from...

Scorchio 2022 – Day 2

Well, as forecast Sunday (yesterday) was indeed the hottest day of the year so far. The temperature on the Borth and Ynyslas Weather Station here in our back garden hit 28.2ºC at 2:01pm. Still quite a way off the all time high of 33.7ºC but today is meant to be hotter still and it is...
