Lights and Lurgy

Well, our trip to Bristol a couple of weeks ago left me with the beast of all lurgy’s. It didn’t seem too bad to start with but then I just couldn’t kick it and I probably ended up with a chest infection. It still hasn’t gone and I still can’t stop coughing. So, I’ve been...

Changes on the Beach

Things continue to change on the beach here. They change every day of course and that’s part of the beauty of living by the sea. Winds, tides and the seasons change things day by day. No two days are ever the same, but there have been some longer-term changes happening lately that may not be...

Dog Poo Bins

These are not the most exciting additions to the landscape here at Ynyslas, but we seem to have acquired dog poo bins. Let’s hope it stops people leaving little bags of dog poo all over the place. The bin itself isn’t pretty but it should be better than little plastic bags everywhere and as far...

Golf Course Clear Out

The shed that the golf course use to keep some equipment was damaged by the storms earlier in the year. It’s been looking quite a mess for a while to be honest, but the damage does seem to have forced them to give it a clear out. I have a feeling that quite a lot...

A Home Defib

Defibs in Borth and Ynyslas Borth and Ynyslas doesn’t have many publicly available defibrillators really. The nearest one to us is at the Visitor Centre in the dunes.

Poppy Making at Wonderwool Wales

Well, that was something a little different for us. A friend of ours who is instrumental in organising the Wonderwool Wales Festival¬†asked if we could help out for a few hours on Sunday. We said we’d be there as that’s what we’re like and so we headed off into the unknown on Sunday morning. We...

Planning Notice for Oak Tree Sculpture 1

Tree Sculpture on Borth & Ynyslas Beach

There are loads of planning notice¬†signs up at the entrance to the beach here at Borth & Ynyslas for a proposed ‘Metal Cast Oak Tree’. According to the signs it will be located in the inter-tidal zone on the beach between Borth and Ynyslas (except they have spelt Ynyslas incorrectly!). From what we’ve seen elsewhere,...

Schools Concert

It must be about a year since we were sat in the Great Hall at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre listening to a performance by the various childrens orchestra’s from the area. Once again we were back listening to them on Tuesday evening. I’d had to come into work earlier in the day for a workshop...

21st Century at Ynyslas

We seem to be moving ever closer to the 21st Century at Ynyslas… First we leap-frogged most people in the UK by getting Superfast broadband via a direct Fibre to the Property (FTTP) connection rather than the standard Fibre to the Cabinet connection that most people with Superfast Broadband have. Before that we were on...
