Quad Camp Day 3 – Snowdon

Day 3 of the quad Camp brought with it a super sore throat and snot galore. Lovely!! Big, thick green slimey snot that seemed to go on forever. It was the sort that has some proper weight to it and brings a sense of immense but short-lived satisfaction when ejected from ones nostrils. Short-lived because...

Quad Camp Day 2

The Rame Peninsula – Camping Trip Day 2

Today looked like being a bright sunny day. There was still a breeze blowing and some wind-blown waves on the long expanse of sands at Whitsands Bay. Rather than drive anywhere we decided to walk down the cliffs to the beach today instead. We of course had a swim and pancakes at the campsite first....
