While many of NRW’s woodlands and nature reserves have been open during the coronavirus pandemic all of its car parks and many recreation facilities were shut in March.
NO change of date or credits will be available after June 5th as we need to draw a line under the admin and move forwards with a clear idea of numbers wishing to attend any event so that we may plan and implement safety protocols appropriately.
Of course I could be wrong and it could be that these restrictions rumble on due to a spike or the continued mismanagement of the crisis by the AM’s and MP’s. If that’s the case then we’ll bump July too. But, all is currently looking good for July and what a month we have planned in – do check it out 🙂
I had to move my van from Canton to it’s store at Penarth Marina following the final elements of refitting it – a long journey into solar power and gas heating and sofa building. It’s done. My camper is now the best version of itself and the best van conversion I have ever worked on. It’s perfect for getting away in this weather that we are having and quite frustrating that that is not an option…
We decided that the Covid 19 lockdown was a fine excuse to get out and explore the bits of Cardiff nearby and to get in some good walks away form the crush of Cardiff’s population in Bute Park.
Andy was off with a bad back and so David stepped in to deliver this fine walk in the far west of the Brecon Beacons National Park and taking in Llyn y Fan Fach of the Lady of the Lake legend as well as three major peaks.
Entry is simple. We want you to write a short (or long) piece about a day long walk (with us or solo or with others, we don’t mind) in Wales (or elsewhere) that details your journey and mentions one (or more) highlight. A few (or many) snaps to accompany the piece too please. Obviously your piece will need to be submitted by close of play on the 30th May.
Despite the weather the views on this day were spectacular and made the more memorable by the effort required by the walkers to gain the ridges and summit. Well done all 🙂
Andy has yearly insurance with iCarHire Insurance and this seems to do the job, even for car hire in Iceland! It’s Europe wide cover and when the virus is over and you can plan on getting away again do have a look and save yourself some cash…
A few years back I moved to Penarth, to live outside of Cardiff city centre, near to the international pool where I have a membership for use of the pool, yoga classes and health suit and also to have better security for my vehicles, Cardiff having become like living in ‘The Purge’. I took up longboarding around the bay, from the pool into town and going for the occasional run.
On a Saturday in November we gathered nearby Andy’s yacht at Penarth Marina and made our way over to the Customs House and onto the beach. From here we wandered to Penarth Pier and then up onto the cliff top and along to Lavernock Point.
It was another one of our regular walkers birthday. Cat hails from England but despite that she’s still welcome 😉 Andy bought her a cake and gave her a hug for crossing the bridge on a wet birthday morning 🙂
