A Day on Skomer

We woke up to the hottest day of the year so far. The sky was deep blue and the temperature was already climbing. It was 7:45am when Pam and John picked us up ready for our day on Skomer Island. It is well known for its wildlife: around half the world’s population of Manx shearwaters…

Carn Llidi to Caerfai

Just a few photos of Carn Llidi to Caerfai in Springtime to cheer us up this week.    

Lleithyr to Abereiddy

Another beautiful evening, and after work this evening Janet and I decided to keep up the pressure and cycle to Abereiddy. We left the site and started to cycle down through the lanes to Berea. I used the electrics once and then realised the battery was depleted. So I managed to cycle the rest of…

Mr Moustaches and Friends

This week saw the part seasonal leave site until September. It has left a big hole in our lives on site as we grow very close to them seeing them everyday. Of course the only reason we purchased Mr Moustaches was because we had been on an outing with Anne and David, we fell in…

First Solo Bike Ride

I did it..?!!! I’m on a high, having cycled for 11 miles, let me underline that 11 miles …. I feel on top of the world, admittedly I cannot stand or site at the moment so hovering about as my bum is numb but boy am I proud of myself. This is all thanks to my…

Getting Fit

I’ve decided that since I bought the E Bike I really should use it. So I went to Haverfordwest and purchased a new helmet and cycling gloves. My mentor is Janet who is my heroine as she cycled for charity through Cuba…. Wow… We took it easy the first few nights as I had been…

Empty Pockets

It’s been one heck of an expensive week for us. Firstly, over the bank holiday weekend there was a power cut which spiked the ice cream freezer, this wasn’t picked up until next day, by which time of course all we had left was one huge puddle…. couldn’t save any of it.  So that was…

Back at St Davids

We arrived back on site and were warmly welcomed by those who knew we were going to pick up the car. It was quite amazing… reminded me of times when I bought a new (second hand) car when my parents and grandparents were alive… they always wanted to be shown around the new car and…

St Davids Head

A pleasant way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Wandering up to St Davids Head. We managed to see a pair of Peregrin Falcons which have been nesting up on Carn Llidi since 2015 to our knowledge (may have been before, but we weren’t in residence then). We saw Wild Horses on the headland, near to Coetan…

Friends, Fun and Days Out

We’ve had a wonderful colourful couple of weeks here at St David’s. The weather has settled and we have had some gorgeous days, amazingly without any or much wind, which is quite unusual for this area. The boats have started again and we are booking people onto them direct from site and the buses are…
