Dyfi Estuary Pano 0

Full on Friday

That was a good day, especially as it was only Friday and not even the weekend. Up early as usual after a poor nights sleep for an hour or so of work on the computer and then off for a fairly hard 70 minute run from home. It shouldn’t have been that hard as it wasn’t...

More Sunshine and More Wind

Another perfect day here in Ynyslas. More Sunshine and More wind. There were some lovely views over the estuary from on top of the dunes first thing. When this was taken there was barely a breath of wind. That soon changed though whilst I was doing a hard VO2Max Interval session on the turbo trainer....

Windsurfing in the Sunshine

What a day for a Bank Holiday! After a nice early morning stroll along the beach to avoid the crowds we enjoyed a quiet breakfast in the conservatory before heading into Borth to man the stalls at the Borth Charities Fete. Borth Charities Fete The turn-out from the Scouts was disappointing though. I know it’s...

Bank Holiday Activities

Dawn Chorus in the Dunes That was a good bank holiday. My usual early start but for a change I didn’t get up immediately but lay in bed listening to the dawn chorus. The blackbirds and sparrows were in good voice and they were soon joined by Skylark too. I’m sure there were robins and plenty...

Sunny Windsurf Session

After my first windsurf session for absolutely ages on Monday, the conditions on Tuesday were even better. Much sunnier and a bit windier too with slightly larger waves as well. It would have been rude not to go out again but with a busy day planned and lots to do I only just managed to...

Annoying Wind

No, I’m not referring to any of Anna’s habits (we won’t go there), I’m talking meteorologically. It was plenty windy enough when I got home with gusts touching 40 knots so headed over to the beach with my little wave board and a 5m and 4.5m sail ready for what looked liked being a really good...

Windsurfing – Back on Board

Those of you who knew me a few years ago won’t quite believe this, but it has been ages (literally months) since I’ve been windsurfing. So long in fact that I don’t want to look it up to see how long ago it was! This may not seem unusual to some people, but considering the...

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...

More Geocaching Records in Aberaeron and Aberarth

Another day of the school holidays and it started grey and dreary, but Morgan and I were undeterred and decided to head off towards Aberaeron in search of a 5* difficulty geocache so that we could get another ‘Summer Road Trip’ souvenir. We’d spotted a 5* difficulty cache in Aberaeron which would do nicely as...

Finishing off the Geocache Chocolates

Monday was very wet and windy and almost wintry in nature. I managed a nice windsurf session though and then we all headed out in Aberystwyth and for a drive around the local country lanes setting up a treasure hunt for the Scouts. The plan is to invite the community to take part in the...

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...

A Weekend in Paradise – Windsurfing, Den Building and Tickle Rugby

You can’t beat a sunny weekend at home. Lots of chores and little jobs completed on Saturday and then plenty of time to enjoy the garden and pig out with a barbecue. Sunday dawned wet and windy though and the shed still leaks so I decided not to bother going for my usual Sunday morning...
