The Skerries - the hard way!
Sunday, November 12, 2006

I hadn't been to the Skerries for about a year, but now I've been two weekends in a row. Barry and I left left from Cemlyn, just like Clare, Axel and I did, except that we decided to ferry glide out there against the tide! There was a reasonably strong westerly wind and quite a lot of rebounding waves off the north coast of Angelsey so our eddy hop up to Cemlyn was quite bouncy with many waves splashing in our faces. Great! We started the ferry glide from Cemlyn and surprised ourselves that we managed to make it to the Skerries against the tide in quite choppy conditions. I think I was just hungry and wanted to be able to land for lunch! I'm not surprised I was hungry as the journey out there took us over 2 and a half hours! We were both pretty tired by the time we arrived. Going back to Cemlyn with the tide and the waves took a mere 45 minutes but still required energy as the waves were quite hard to surf, but we couldn't resist. I didn't take my camera so here's a photo of Barry at South Stack a few weeks ago, when we went round the Stacks with Alun and Greer.

Birthday fun
Monday, November 06, 2006

Thanks to my friends for giving me a fun birthday weekend. It's been easier to enjoy playing out because it's been lovely weather in Wales for about a week - calm, sunny, and mild. On Saturday Claire Jones, Axel and I headed to the Skerries in a lumpy swell. Axel has written it up on his blog.

On Sunday, Gemma, Axel and I headed to the Menai Straits to play on the fast moving water between the 2 bridges. We munched on some delicious chocolate presents and supped whiskey from a hip flask to warm us on the waves! It's the first time I've seen people on the white house on the island in the Menai Straits. I told them I'd like to buy their island, but I somehow don't think I could afford it! Thanks to Axel for the photo. I keep saying I must learn how to twirl my paddle properly!!
