It seems that no matter what the weather there is always something to do here in Mid West Wales. After a week of wind and plenty of windsurfing, the wind has dropped and I headed out on my bike. I missed a surf session whilst on my bike, but since then the surf has continued to...

SUP Fishing in Borth

Monday was looking to be a lovely day here this week. What better way to spend it than SUP fishing? It was cold at first with temperatures dropping to 4ºC but with clear blue skies and light winds. Perfect conditions for SUP fishing. I had a fair bit to do at home though so got...

Tandem Surfing

Seeing as my Mum was worried that I didn’t do anything strenuous on Saturday morning – other than moth trapping, beekeeping and geocaching – I thought I’d better make up for it.

Fantastic Fish Feast

More interesting Internet ‘illiteration’ as the sea keeps giving. After a week of sensational submarine swims in Aberystwyth, it was time for some fabulous fishy fun at the weekend. The clear starry skies that we enjoyed on Friday evening whilst playing in the dunes at Ynyslas with the Scouts had gone and our watery West Wales...

Last weekend was just such a weekend and we were heading towards Bristol for a large ‘Cole Family Picnic’. Friday started...
