Off to Anglesey next, visiting South Stack and North Stack, the cliffs of Gogarth, and looking for seals and porpoises. Also the ruins of Porth Wen Brickworks because rainy days in North Wales.
We’re touring Wales this week, making it up as we go to get away from it all for a bit. Annabel found a sea mouse which is actually a worm and the weirdest thing we’ve ever found in a rock pool, we saw a baby seal and a lot of Welsh coastline.
Covid-19 regulations have been relaxing, so we’re finally going to go and see my sister and family. Still in Wales though.
TLDR: we keep working, and try to take a short holiday.
But also, kayaking and climbing.
It’s too hot to climb so we’re going to get on and in the water this weekend.
We went away for a week to a very, very quiet place in the Scottish Highlands for kayaking and bouldering. And for the quiet.
It’s been a funny lockdown week. The weather got good, so everyone went outside and we’ve been trying to avoid them.
Doing stuff, and keeping ourselves amused. Now we’re allowed back in the sea we’re making the most of it, while keeping our distance from other people.
Flexible working hours and being allowed back out to explore our local area gives the opportunity for a little variety on top of the running and at-home-strength-training. Woot!
The weekend before the UK gets locked down we get out to a huge empty beach and sit in the sea alone, surrounded by nothing. Except mushy waves.
And Kim goes metal detecting.
