Poppit Sands

Poppit Sands Beach near Cardigan. This is a really lovely, open, clean beach. Poppit Sands Cafe sits on the main car park. Very clean & efficient! Quite a wide selection of food/refreshments. We had a tasty Cream Tea and Barley enjoyed doggie ice cream! #visitwales #visitpembrokeshire

Traeth Llydan

TRAETH LLYDAN
Monday: finished work a bit early and drove to Anglesey with my best friend. Ynys Môn: sacred isle of the druids. She stayed in North Wales after we finished uni, and I went back to England, so we make the most of any sweet, precious time we get together.
I blessed the bikini I'd grabbed before we left the house. The day was unseasonably mild; the sea beckoned, liquid quicksilver in the late autumn, late afternoon sun. A quick change behind the grassy dunes, and I was running, skipping down to the silver sea. Splish, splash, into the silver.

The water was 14°C: a whole 4°C warmer than the lakes I've been swimming in this weekend. No gasps from the chill - only from the awesome beauty of this place; the powerful pull of the tide; the blessing of being the only person in this watery paradise.

Kelp fronds brushed my legs, making me think uncomfortably of the washed-up moon jellies I'd passed on the beach - and even worse, of the recent influx of Portuguese Man o'Wars to our shores. I took a deep breath and entrusted myself to the elements, diving into the waves; a selkie. The ocean held me, and the breeze kissed my face.

The gallery was well-attended for Samantha Boulanger’s Exhibition Opening on Saturday 12th October. Her prints and photographs, inspired by the play of light on the built and natural environment, brought a welcome creative playfulness to a grey autumn day. The exhibition runs until the end of October.

A morning loo stop walking around Llyn Ogwen en route to Idwal and a day on the Glyderau mountains in Snowdonia.
If it's good enough for the sheep it's good enough for me 😊

If you're new to walking and live in and around #herefordshire or #worcestershire boarders, this place is a great place to start! Easy paths lead to epic views!

Wild camps in the Brecon Beacons. This is the closest mountain range to me and love being able to escape here and sleep up on the high ground. And as always, the weather changed a lot.

Caernarfon Castle

You do a lot of walking at this castle. It’s huge, it’s possible to climb every tower and there are several and then there’s the battlement walk . As impressive as it is, I found it difficult to conjure up a feeling of atmosphere, until we discovered some of the lower passages.

Pembroke Castle

🎧 Lake House - Silver and Nothing 🎧
.
Sadly enough my holiday is nearly over.
.
I am so happy to be back with my three little ladies again but I do miss how happy I felt in Wales!
.
So here's another throwback to when I visited Pembroke Castle, as it definitely was one of my favourite days ever!
.
Pembroke Castle has a huge map of Wales with all its castles on it and I of course had to take a picture with my favourite one, although Pembroke might've stolen its spot or share it now.

Ynys Llanddwyn

Crashing waves at Ynys Llanddwyn......................
What an awesome day spent with @lczzzzz @wanderjust.uk @alexanderwjf &
@uk_wildcamp !! It was as Alex said in his story, a full on sunrise until sunset photography mission.... A proper adventure with people who started the day as strangers & ended it as good mates! What a day, sunrise in the mountains & sunset at the ocean. I have loads of photos of Twr Mawr lighthouse so wanted something different from this location. Hope you like the splash & pour water motion captured here, thats what I was trying for.......... obviously the setting sun too!!
Look out for following images from the others ( & me ) as the sky KICKED OFF as the sun disappeared over the horizon!

Snowdon

Four months ago I was out helping to lead a group on Snowdon and I stood somewhere around this spot to take a photograph of the sunset. The following day B and I went on an adventure and I nearly died. Last night I was back on Snowdon helping with another sunset group walk and snapped this photograph. Today B and I had another mini adventure but there were no life threatening moments and we were back home for our post walk hot chocolate this time.
.
It really seems like a lifetime since my accident. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster, I’m ashamed to say I’ve moaned and cried a lot!
.
However these past couple of weeks have been a big turning point. I refuse to moan anymore about the adventures I’ve missed out on or the experiences I’ve had to cancel. I’m lucky to be alive; I have Chris and an incredible family around me, some amazing friends and supportive work colleagues ... I might have lost a few months but I have my whole life ahead of me to do all the things I couldn’t do during those 4 months.
.
I discharged myself from hospital, I went back to work earlier than the medical bods wanted, I started exposure therapy sooner than I should have, stopped the morphine as soon as I could stand the pain.
.
There have been so many times when I’ve wanted to give up but I’ve fought tooth and nail to feel normal again. I’ll have the mental injuries for awhile yet but I’m working on those. The physical injuries and scars will fade, but now when I look at the scar on my hand I don’t get upset, it’s my daily reminder that I’m stubborn, tough, a fighter and I have a pretty awesome life to get out there and live.

Snowdonia National Park

It takes anywhere between 21-66 days to form a habit... A week on from finishing my 100km single-use plastic free hike and I’ve continued to use all of the plastic free swaps apart from the toothpaste tablets, I can’t quite get to grips with those (and 66 days of accidentally swallowed toothpaste tablets isn’t going to do me much good 😂)

None of it’s been an inconvenience so I’ve had no reason to stop. In fact, things like the reusable food bags are more convenient because I don’t have to remember to buy disposable bags/ cling film/ foil any more!

The hike was a great way to kick start new habits - next on my agenda is to look at food shopping and see what I can do there. I’m never going to be perfect, but it’s not about perfection, it’s about being more mindful. I care too much about the outdoors to ignore how I contribute to wrecking it 🌎
