Tree Roots on the Beach in Wales

After torrential rains in the morning, Morgan and I were supposed to be going mountain biking on Saturday afternoon, but as the skies cleared and the sun came out Morgan couldn’t be bothered so instead I decided to go for a walk along the beach into Borth to get some bread and milk. It turned...

Ynyslas Groynes

Just some pretty pictures of the Groynes at Ynyslas from our beach photo walk on Sunday, I hope you like them. We should get out for photo-walks in the local area more really as it’s always nice to spend time outside and to get some good photos for the weblog in the process. It’s surprising...

Alternative Beach Transport – Windsurf Wheelbarrow

For some reason many people find it odd that I use a wheelbarrow to get to the beach. In fact some people don’t even believe it, but it’s true. It’s actually the easiest (and cheapest) way to transport my kit to the beach and means that I can go from sitting at my desk working...

Gone Surfing

It was a gorgeous Bank Holiday Monday here. Clear blue skies saw the temperature drop to 4ºC over night but the sun was up early and it soon warmed up. With no wind at all it was a perfect day for the beach. My parents were still here along with my sister and her children...
