Paddle, Pedal, Paddle

Another weekend away in Ramsey our Campervan for me. Although it was quite a wrench to tear me away from Ynyslas on Saturday morning. I had arranged to meet Mark in Colwyn Bay, but before I left I wandered over to the beach in the early morning sunshine. The skies were blue with the sun...

New Surf Ski

New Surf Ski I collected my new Surf Ski today whilst dropping Anna off at the airport in Birmingham. I’m pleased to say that it matches the camper nicely!
