The Long Way Home

Sunday was a lovely day here in West Wales. Clear blue skies, and sunshine but with quite a chill in the air. There was little wind either so a perfect day for a walk in the hills. First though I headed out for a paddle on my surf ski as I haven’t had chance to...

Fine Dining at Ynyshir Hall

You may remember that Anna treated me to a fine dining experience at Ynyshir Hall for my birthday last year. It was 11 courses of Michelin starred food by renowned chef Gareth Ward. Not the full on dinner experience due to the cost, so just the lunch menu but it was still a meal to...
