An Impromptu Adventure in the Welsh Wilderness

Starting off on Dylife Mountain Road, I soaked up the views from Foel Fadian. Camping by Llyn Bugeilyn after a day of lakes and peaks, misty nights and frosty mornings added to the adventure. It was a wild weekend to remember in the heart of Wales!

Easter Windsurf

I haven’t been able to get out windsurfing for a while. Conditions and commitments just haven’t permitted any time on the water. I was therefore a little rusty whilst out for the first time in ages last weekend. The conditions were perfect with a decent Easterly howling down through the valley and a midday high...

The Wild Welsh Wilderness

Having been away for work last week we had a fairly quiet weekend. I did some work in the garden and we headed out to Cross Foxes on Sunday for a Mother’s Day lunch – well, Morgan isn’t here to treat Anna, so I did instead. I of course went along for the meal too....

Another Practice Camp – Best Spot Yet!

Saturday started with a busy day in Aberystwyth for us. We did some shopping, collected my glasses and then test drove a very nice Hyundai Ioniq 6. We hadn’t looked at the Ioniq 6 before but they saif they had some good deals on it and the figures they quoted did sound good so we...

Surf ‘n’ Turf

This may be showing my age, but the University tagline used to be ‘Where the Mountains Meet the Sea’. It’s always nice therefore to have a day where I manage to get in the sea and then head off into the hills. Things have been a little quiet here since we returned from holiday. Anna...

Sun, Sea and Sand

There’s nothing to see here, just a normal day at Ynyslas. Everything you’d expect from the beach really, sun, sea and sand. It was just turned up a notch thanks to the fact that I was sharing it with Ivor, our local Katabatic wind…. he’s a rascal!!!

Sunrise at Last

Finally, after what feels like weeks on end of very wet, dark and dreary days, there’s a glimmer of hope. The sun has finally made a re-appearance with the first sunrise we’ve seen for ages. After weeks of numerous shades of grey it’s nice to see some colour again.

A Stroll in the Hills

It’s not all about the highest peaks and the most difficult terrain, sometimes it’s nice just to get out for a stroll in the hills as well. Especially when recovering from a major bout of lurgy. So, that’s what I did on Tuesday this week as it looked like the nicest day of the week....
