Underpowered, Over Heating and Under the Weather

I had a busy day at the University working from 8-5 on a day I don’t normally work yesterday. So, I was looking forward to getting out on the water today as the forecast looked good. Westerly’s all day long, 25- 30 knots – what more could a windsurfer want? I therefore headed over to...

Man-Flu Lurgyitis

Well, it had to happen – Man Flu! After months of shielding, isolation and generally being careful, Morgan had to go back to school. Sure enough, within a week he had a bit of a cold so had a day off sick.  For some reason, despite being generally fit and healthy I always seem susceptible...

More Estuarine Adventures

With the temperatures about to tumble by the second half of the week it would have been rude not to make the most of the summer weather today. After a couple of days windsurfing in the crazy winds of the estuary it was back into much calmer estuarine waters. To Aberdyfi and Beyond There was...

Aberdyfi and Back

Plans were afoot on Sunday for a bike ride with Colin. We were going to head north, along Tal-y-Llyn and then around to Tywyn and Aberdyfi before heading back home. However, wind was forecast as well so maybe I should go windsurfing instead. Sure enough, Sunday dawned bright and windy and I had to make...

Dragons in the Garden

It’s been blowing a hoolie here for the last few days thanks to our local Katabatic wind known as Ivor. That doesn’t seem to have stopped the dragonflies though and there have been quite a few in the garden. I’ve only ever had my phone with me when I’ve been out there so I haven’t...

Working from Home

It’s been another busy week at work this week trying to get everything ready for the return of the students. Working from home has been the norm for a while but I’m having to go into work more and more now. I guess easing myself back towards some sort of normal is a good thing....

Relaxed Cruising

Rather than wait for later in the day I thought I’d go for a windsurf first thing this morning. Always a good bet, just in case the wind drops. Having hoped to be out on my 5m sail and 85ltr wave board I took my 5.7m and larger 104ltr freeride board over with me as...

Ready for winter

The cake that I made for Anna’s birthday is almost gone – that can only mean one thing – autumn is on its way and winter will soon follow. The cake was a chocolate cheesecake but it was a slightly odd cheesecake recipe. Not a problem as it came out more like a chocolate torte...
