Delightful Dyfi

If only Summer could be like this for more than just a few days. Sunday was another gorgeous day with wall to wall sunshine for the most part. it never really got warm though only making it to 14ºC but that didn’t stop us has a lovely day around the delightful Dyfi estuary.

Early Morning Bike Ride

I was up at 4am, so got some work on a website done before heading out for an early morning bike ride. True the the ‘Delightful Dyfi’ title of this post I went around the Dyfi estuary, first heading inland from Ynyslas to Machynlleth where I crossed the river and headed back to the sea at Aberdovey. It was pretty cold mind you at 3ºC when I set off so I was wearing winter kit on my top half. I only had shorts on though and forgot to put any overshoes on so my feet were soon feeling like blocks of ice.

I was only taking it easy too as my legs were tired after my 30 mile run/walk along the coast path the day before. I even stopped off at Picnic Island for a flapjack and to take a few photos of the Dyfi Estuary.

I could see our house just a couple of miles away from this vantage point, but to get there I had a 25 mile journey back around the Dyfi Estuary. At least it was warming up a little by now, but it was still only about 6ºC.

I was back home before 9am for a shower to warm up and a second breakfast. Closely followed by a third breakfast as I was feeling hungry.
