Summer Colours

The sky is blue and the sun is shining once again. 22ºC at the moment and we must be getting used to this as it doesn’t feel hot, just pleasantly warm.

Springtime in the Garden

Nothing much to report from the weekend really, except for the fact that the thick sea fog that we had to contend with on Friday did clear on Saturday to leave a glorious day. Perfect for a surf ski paddle and then a Gravel Bike ride in the hills. The enforced rest of the previous week...

Garden Clearance

I do often wonder what things would be like if I didn’t do quite so much training each week. It’s takes up quite a lot of time, usually about 15 hours a week. I’m not training seriously at the moment but trying to fit in several swim, kayak, bike and run sessions a week, along...
