Westbury Mill Water Gardens

We like to stop off on the way home from my parents and generally do so at a garden centre. It gives us chance to maybe buy some plants or other things and have some lunch. It also breaks the journey up a little so that we aren’t driving non-stop for 3½ hours. The trouble...

Running, Surfing, Sky’s Garden Nursery & Bike Riding – Bank Holiday Fun from Ynyslas

Buying a VW Camper

I should have known that things were going to get expensive when someone drove into the side of my car just before Christmas. The upshot of that was that my car was a Cat D right-off so I bought a replacement. This proved to be a little too small which then convinced us that really...

Dyfi Estuary Adventure

As it was a ‘rest day’ on Saturday I decided to head out for a little Dyfi Estuary adventure on my Surf Ski. High tide was around 1:30pm at Ynyslas and therefore around 2pm 6 miles further upstream at Glandyfi. Winds were fairly light and mainly southerly and the sun was out. The weather looked...
