Summer Surf

Summer continues and Friday brought with it not only more wall-to-wall sunshine and temperatures in the high teens but also some summer surf. So, after a short session on the turbo trainer and lots and lots of household chores we (Morgan and I) headed over to the beach form a summertime surf. We were due...

Cracked Starboard SUP

Just a quick update about my cracked starboard SUP. I spoke directly to customer services yesterday, rather than through the retailer. As is always the case when on the phone they were helpful and polite but of course unwilling to commit to anything. I explained the mystery behind the whole thing and they decided that it was...

Business as Usual

It’s been quiet here recently. Nothing to blog about really. We’ve all had some sort of lurgy to one extent or another. It completely wiped me out for a few days and of course stopped me training. Anna and Morgan have had it it too, just not quite so bad. Beekeeping I’m gradually getting back...

GoPro Mounting Accessories

If you haven’t already noticed, I had a new GoPro Hero 4 Silver for Christmas, complete with lots of GoPro mounting accessories. I also had plenty of GoPro mounting accessories leftover from my previous GoPro camera. What I didn’t have was somewhere to keep them all, but Morgan had a nice silver carry case that...

Fantastic Fish Feast

More interesting Internet ‘illiteration’ as the sea keeps giving. After a week of sensational submarine swims in Aberystwyth, it was time for some fabulous fishy fun at the weekend. The clear starry skies that we enjoyed on Friday evening whilst playing in the dunes at Ynyslas with the Scouts had gone and our watery West Wales...

Fun in the Sun

Another fun day in the sun for us yesterday here in glorious Mid Wales. A usual early start for me to get some work done and then off to work for Anna as well. Meanwhile Morgan and I headed into Borth with the Stand-up Paddleboard and our snorkelling kit. Conditions were perfect, the air temperature...

Family Days Out

As I think I’ve already mentioned, rather than having a proper family holiday this year Anna and I are taking several days here and there off work so that we can have lots of long weekends. Last weekend was just such a weekend and we were heading towards Bristol for a large ‘Cole Family Picnic’. Friday started...

A Sunny Afternoon on the Beach

After a couple of FTF’s on nearby geocaches, Anna had to head into Aberystwyth to play her cornet with the Aberystwyth Silver Band at the Carnival. The sun had come out so Morgan and I loaded up the car and headed to the estuary to play on the beach. After a bit of an adventure...
