ETA back to school

ETA currently 5pm.

The final adventure - the journey home!

After a busy week we are packed up and ready to go.  The weather has changed dramatically and we leave behind a rainy and miserable looking Snowdonia. The route back is approximately 6 hours which if we have a clear run will get us back a few hours earlier than planned. Sat Nav currently says 4pm at Shoreham. We will keep you updated as best we can on the drive back.

North Wales - Day 3 - Coasteering - Anglesey

After a continental breakfast, we had a briefing on the day's activities. Today we would be going to Anglesey to do some coasteering. We packed our kit and made lunch and by 9am we were on the road. A short drive up the road and over the Menai Straights took us onto the beautiful  Isle of Anglesey. We headed for a picturesque bay got kitted up and off we went, starting with some sea level traversing and then moving onto some small jumps. As the day progressed so did the size of the jumps. A short lunch on the beach followed by a bit more coasteering ending with a cracking 8-meter jump into the crystal clear water below. After a great day of adventure, we headed back to our base for a lovely homemade lasagne which we ate just in time for the start of the England Football match.
