2019-07-14 The Skerries

I had arranged to meet Kris, Si and anyone else who was interested at the Holyhead truck stop cafe for 0900. Kris had a plan to paddle to South Stack and then to paddle PM tidal race later in the day. As we left the Truck Stop, Kris bumped into a friend of his...

2019-04-06 Assessment Disaster

I've just come across a little booklet written by the UK Sepsis Trust. I wish I had been told about this following my little sepsis episode a year ago. Or at least been given some of the info by the hospital when they discharged me. But then again, if I was told, I would...

The Church in the Sea

2018-05-13 Church in the Sea

On Sunday we paddled from Cable Bay down towards Llanddwyn Island. We didn't get there as we stopped off at the Church in the Sea (Cribinau), followed by Port y Cwch beach for lunch. We perhaps stayed too long on the beach. After all, it was a glorious day. We did a big beach...

PM - not a lot happening

2016-10-09 Penrhyn Mawr Again!

Penrhyn Mawr again with Brian, Andy Sloan and Dave Blake’s group. We all got there far too early. We (Brian and moi) told them it was far too early the night before, but they insisted on a 9:30 on the water. Hey ho. Another hour in bed would have been nice. When we arrived...

Arctic Tern

2016-07-31 The Skerries from Porth Camaes

2016-05-07 Rhoscolyn Anglesey

It was a big spring tide weekend, but with HW around midday it was not the best time-wise for getting on the water at 10:30am. I paddled with PL and Abo. Due to the prevailing weather conditions, everyone with a sea kayak on Anglesey seemed to have the same idea. The car park at...

Penrhyn Mawr - Outer Race

2015-05-24/25 Anglesey Again

Sunday 24th May This recent bank holiday weekend saw me driving over to Anglesey (again) on Sunday to meet up with my paddle buddy. The original plan was to go out to the Skerries, but the wind from the NW had other ideas. So we settled on meeting at Borth Wen, Rhoscolyn at the...

2014-11-25 The Skerries

Unfortunately my paddling buddy wasn’t feeling very well on Tuesday and decided not to paddle. This was a difficult decision for him as we had planned and discussed the trip to the Skerries the night before. But he said  there was no point in him trying to paddle, only to have a problem whilst...
