Top Notch Summer Windsurfing at Ynyslas

Well, what a difference 24 hours makes. Tuesday was a glorious day with no wind, perfect temperatures in the low 20’s and wall to wall sunshine. I started it with a Surf Ski Paddle, went for a run, and then had another surf ski paddle. Wednesday was cooler, wet and very windy. That didn’t stop...

Morning Paddle to Aberdovey

What a gorgeous day yesterday. I couldn’t resist getting out early for a paddle on my surf ski. I started on the seafront across from our house. The conditions were perfect with the early morning sun warming things up and a super calm sea. Just a small swell running. I headed north to Aberdovey and meandered...

Mis-behaving Bees

Just a quick update on the bees. If you remember last time I was quite pleased that both hives had re-queened. One seemed to be doing really well. The other wasn’t so great and I found the queen camped out under the mesh floor. I put her back in and hoped that maybe she had been out on...

Beehaving in the Garden

‘Beehaving’? If you remember from my last post about the bees they had been ‘mis-beehaving’. I had performed an artificial split only for the half without the queen to be a little lax in creating a queen cell while the haf with the queen swarmed anyway leaving no queen cell behind. I think my actions have helped...
