Planning Notice for Oak Tree Sculpture 1

Tree Sculpture on Borth & Ynyslas Beach

There are loads of planning notice signs up at the entrance to the beach here at Borth & Ynyslas for a proposed ‘Metal Cast Oak Tree’. According to the signs it will be located in the inter-tidal zone on the beach between Borth and Ynyslas (except they have spelt Ynyslas incorrectly!). From what we’ve seen elsewhere,...

Spring Skies at Ynyslas

It was such a nice day yesterday but I was stuck at work. So, come the evening I couldn’t resist walking to Scouts rather than getting in the car. So, here’s a couple of photos from the beach last night. Lovely Spring Skies. Things weren’t looking too shabby in the garden at sunrise either – as...

Just Checking that I can still Windsurf

Thought I’d better check that I could still windsurf seeing as it has been howling for days. Popped over to the beach with my 5m sail and 85 ltr Naish Hybrid Freewave. 25-30 knots WNW winds and some fairly meaty, messy swells to play with. The odd crazy squall to contend with as well,  but I...
