Before starting this blog we have now uploaded our video to U Tube. Our thanks to the “Yooff” in the form of John’s nephew Tom (Tom Latham at Hatfish Design) for this addition to our education! The link is: Dolphin video.
Friday 24th May. To Wooltack Point with Bob and a sociable evening.
Our friend from Melbourne, Bob Belk, has a caravan in Pembrokeshire contacted us to fix up a walk round the headland at Wooltack opposite Skomer as the weather continued to blow old boots from the north.
For those who don’t know, the Pembrokeshire coast is spectacularly beautiful, especially at this time of the year. There is a wonderful array of flowers & colours. Bob kindly collected us and took us to the peninsular overlooking Skomer. The photos don’t really do justice to the beauty of the place but you will get the drift.
An excellent crab baguette att he local pub at Malloes completed a good day out.
Later in the day Karen Osland contacted us to arrange to meet up at the Neyland Yacht Club fort a bite to eat. Karen is the acting CEO of Sudep Action, the charity we are supporting for research into epilepsy. (If you have not already done so, please do have a look at the page on this blog. Epilepsy is a real killer (1000 deaths a year in the UK, mainly younger people) which is largely unrecognised. Sudep Action has become the leading world-wide authority on death from epilepsy, funding research and education for sufferers and medical specialists as well as providing support for bereaved families. (Sudep stands for Sudden & Unexplained Death from Epilepsy). We enjoy a pleasant meal with Karen and Steven and their sailing friends Keith and Dee and pick up valuable local knowledge for a sail tomorrow up to Skomer Island through the narrow Jack’s Strait.
All in all a good day – thank you to all the above for taking us under your wings and giving us a good day!
Fair winds to you all!
Yvonne & John
