A Tour of North Wales – Surf Snowdonia

Once again we were having a ‘pre-weeked weekend away’ – We’re enjoying these, a couple of days away before the weekend and then a weekend to chill and get on top of chores at home. After a day at Bodnant Gardens, Conwy and Llandudno on Thursday we drove back along the A55 in the pouring rain...

Surf Tracker App 8

SUP Surfing with the Garmin Fenix 3

I managed to squeeze in a nice little SUP Surfing session on Monday and decided to try out the Surf Tracker app on my Garmin Fenix 3. The conditions were nice, a gentle SW breeze and 2 foot surf rolling into the beach at Ynyslas. The sun was shining, the temperature was almost 20ºC but...

Scouts – Adventure Badge

As I mentioned the other day, the Scouts are beginning to get used to Anna and I  and I think they secretly like the fact that we are their leaders. Things are obviously easier for us over the summer in some respects as the light evenings mean that we can actually get out and do...

Surfing ‘Da Bar’, Crazy Golf and Kawhia – New Zealand Day 12

Eskimo Surf Session

Just got back from a surf session – Yep, it was cold! The waves were really nice though so it had to be done. I’d like to say that it was lovely out there and once I was in the water it wasn’t that cold, but that would be lying. My hands were in agony...

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...

An active day

I don’t seem to have stopped for the past few days, so its now time to start catching up with the blog posts containing details of what we’ve been up to. It all started on Wednesday for me. Up nice and early and did the usual housework, washing up, laundry, cleaning and vacuuming whilst Anna...
