A Snowy Surf Ski

I’ve not long got back from a nice Sunday morning snowy surf ski. We did have some snow here this morning, but only a light covering and it didn’t last long. There is of course plenty in the hills. Unfortunately the hills are just a little too far away to get to without driving. Driving...


Pushing the Limits of the land

I had a busy day today but did manage to finish work on time. I therefore headed out for a nice walk along the beach and ended up pushing the limits of the land. The weather was grey, misty and damp and my walk happened to coincide with low tide. It was a fairly big...


Golden Hour at Ynyslas

I only just managed to get a bit of a walk in today before it got dark. It did mean that I was treated to a sublime sunset as I did so. First Aberdyfi was glowing in the golden light ahead of me. Behind the sky was aglow and reflecting on the unusually calm waters...

Shifting Sandbanks

Early Morning Windsurf I popped out for an early morning windsurf session between the sandbanks in the estuary this morning. High tide was around 7am, but sunrise wasn’t until 8am so I couldn’t really get out before high tide. I therefore left it until it was getting light before heading to the estuary. I rigged...


Clear and Bright at Ynyslas

Nothing much here, just a photo of Ynyslas from a clear, bright and quiet day last week.

Full on Windsurfing at Ynyslas

Well, I did say that Friday afternoons windsurf session would be a warm up for Saturday and that was indeed the case. Saturday morning was pretty grim. Stormy NW winds, lots of rain and cold too. Not very inviting after the sunshine on Friday. Things were set to clear up a little though so eyes...


Windsurfing at Last

Thanks to lockdown, it’s been ages since I’ve been windsurfing. I put an end to that today though with a nice session of the seafront. Having not been out for a while I was likely to be a bit rusty. The wind was NNW which is an unusual tack for us as well so that...


Pandemic Perambulation

With the lockdown still in full effect and a recovery day on the cards for me I decided to make the most of my allocated outdoor exercise with a nice easy walk. It was chilly in the breeze and there were April showers promised so I had a raincoat with me just in case as...


Lockdown on the Beach

Little has changed as far as the Coronavirus lockdown is concerned. We’ve been told in no uncertain terms to ‘Stay at Home’. Last weekend no one seemed to be listening as it was busier than a Bank Holiday weekend here, but the message is now getting through it would seem. For us, it isn’t really...


Social Distancing on the Sea

How’s this for Social Distancing. Miles from anyone and not a soul in sight. Just me, my boat and I! There was quite a stiff breeze blowing though so things were a little choppy in places. All good fun though and a way to stay sane in these times of uncertainty. Followed by some gardening,...
