Terrific Tryfan

After failed attempts at the summit of Tryfan, most notably for my birthday in 2015, I finally made it to the top on Saturday. The Last time I attempted Tryfan the weather was the worst I’ve ever seen it in Snowdonia. That’s saying something too as Snowdonia isn’t renowned for it’s sunny climes. It was as wet as...

Ynyslas Savannah

Yawn yawn… Hot, sunny and still no rain. How much longer can this go on? We’re not complaining as it’s lovely here in this weather and the beach is always calling. Barefeet and boardshorts has been the order of the day here for a while now along with at least twice daily trips to the...

The Heatwave Continues

Heatwave We’re getting used to this heatwave now. It’s once again 28.1ºC out there at the moment and it doesn’t even feel that hot now as we’ve seen temperatures up above 30ºC every day for the last week. Before that it was up into the mid to high 20’s for a while and we haven’t...
