Valentines Treats

We don’t usually do much for Valentines Day as it’s all a bit of a money-grabbing exercise really. This year, just for a change, I decided to be a little more romantic than usual and so stopped off in the shops on my way home from my Coast Path Run on Saturday morning and went...

Early Morning Cycle Once again, no one else was silly enough to join me on an early morning bike ride in the rain, so I headed out just after 5:30am on my own. It was actually quite warm on Sunday morning but still raining and with a fairly strong wind too. Seeing as I usually cycle...

Geocaching Records – 2015

I think 2015 may have been our best year yet as far as geocaching records go. We’ve just finished the year off with two fairly quick and easy geocaches in a very wet and muddy Penglanowen Woods near Nanteos Mansion. None of the geocaches themselves were that notable but it’s a lovely little woodland than...

The Christmas Holidays are disappearing fast and Tuesday looked likely to be the last dry day for a while so we headed off to do a treasure hunt in Aberystwyth.
