Happy to be alive
Monday, October 16, 2006

Don't you love those times where nothing is important except enjoying the here and now. Sunday was one of those special days for me when I forgot all obligaitons and worries and just immersed myself in the natural world. Alun, Barry, Greer & I went around 'the Stacks' again on another glorious warm day. The highlight has got to be surfing a wave in the South Stack outer race with 4 dolphins (and Barry) besides me on the same wave. I'm sure Barry won't be offended that I rate sharing a wave with dolphins slightly higher than surfing with him! We saw the dolphins enjoy 2 surfs in the waves before turning and heading north, leaving us with slightly empty-feeling waves. We also saw lots of porpoises feeding off South Stack lighthouse and lots of seals and seal pups. We planned to land in Parliament House Cave by North Stack for lunch but a mother and baby seal were already on that beach so we had to turn back unfed and put up with the tummy rumbles until we could find a shingly beach that was unoccupied. This proved difficult as the next beach we came to also had a mother and pup on it.

I remember walking across that bridge between the island and the mainland as a pre-teen in the '70s. The wind was blowing hard and I was scared stiff. Just so my dad could visit the stupid lighthouse. Not as nice a day as you had!
