More beach fun after school at Borth. New Flip Flops, New Surf Ski, New Paddles, Super Sunny Beach, Crazy Warm Waters. If only all Tuesdays were like this. A little more practice on my ski.

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

We didn’t really have much planned for Bank Holiday Monday. For a start I kind of forget about Bank Holidays as I don’t usually ‘go into’ work on a Monday but work from home. However, Anna and Morgan were off so it seemed as though we should do something. Running around Ynyslas I was up...
