A Night Away

I’m not sure if this is a thing to ‘celebrate’ or not, but Monday was 1 year since my heart attack. I guess it’s good that I’m still here 1 year later, but celebrating the actual event seems a little weird. It has of course changed almost everything for me but I’ve been recovering and...

Waiting for the Tide to Drop

Monday morning was lovely here. No wind, blue skies and with a backdrop of snow on the hills. It was only 3ºC when I headed out for a surf ski paddle. The tide was high and there was a short period, sloppy wave breaking on the pebbles. It was actually a little bigger than I...

Walking Diffwys in the Rhinogs

Monday’s aren’t too bad really, especially when you can spend the day walking up Diffwys in the Rhinog mountains. We had an uneventful weekend. It was nice and I did manage to get out for a chilly and slightly damp bike ride on Saturday, followed by a surf ski. On Sunday it was time for...

Walking in the Dyfi Hills

Making use of my Annual leave I spent much of Wednesday Walking in the Dyfi Hills. Thanks to all of the weirdness of 2020 I’ve almost made it to the end of the year without taking my full compliment of Annual Leave. I can’t usually take it in term time. There wasn’t enough time to...

Blowing away the Cobwebs

Just a few quick clips from today’s windsurf session. I had some sort of lurgy yesterday so didn’t feel 100%. In fact, I wasn’t going to do much today. After doing some chores and covering the Christmas cake with marzipan (two layers!) I took a stroll over to the beach. It was blowing a hoolie,...

Kilimanjaro Preparation in the Hills of Wales

As you may know from my post earlier in the week, I’m in the process of preparing for a Kilimanjaro Trek. In addition to choosing my trekking company, picking a route, buying flights, getting imunisations and such like I’ve also started to prepare by getting out in the hills here in Wales for some ‘training’....
