I'm walking on sunshine...

Well what a terrific weekend. The sun has arrived and I love it...

I am officially a sun worshiper, some might say a little too much sometimes but something smiles inside of me when the sky is blue and the sun is out saying hello.
I spent the whole weekend with my fiance out on the boat, exploring our beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline. For something different we decided to take a spin out towards Skomer Island and the sea was pretty calm really, I suppose there wasn't much of a wind on Saturday. Normally when you pass St Ann's Head the air changes and the sea gets a little choppier as you officially head out to sea but it was fairly inviting.
I do love watching all the birds bobbing up and down riding the waves they look so at home. My mum loves Puffins and boy was there an abundance of them soaking up the sun over the weekend. It was like they had all decided to meet at this one cove as there was an army of them bobbing altogether in this one spot. I still can't really get over how small and adorable they are, I think their rainbow coloured beaks make them exceed the 'cute' factor!
After Skomer we tootled over to Broad Haven and it was lovely to see all the children splashing around at the waters edge, people enjoying the picnics and soaking up the sun.
We then spent the rest of Saturday and all day Sunday enjoying the peaceful setting of Watick Bay, which is a little bay set around the corner from Dale. It is one little hot spot and the water is so clear.

We are definitely wanting to make the most of this gorgeous weather and so hoping to head out again today after work and head down towards Lawrenny. May even treat ourselves to a bar snack!

It is surprising how quick May is whizzing past actually before we know it our Activity Wales Events team will be heading down to Mumbles to launch the Mumbles Triathlon on Saturday 26th June. That is going to be a terrific day, a great setting with friendly people and a challenge for all who has entered. It is amazing the registrations that have flooded in, people are going crazy for this triathlon though spaces are limited.
If anyone is interested, the Mumbles Tri offers competitors a choice between two distances:

Long Sprint 750m open water swim - 32k bike - 5 k (2 laps) run
Short Sprint 750m open water swim - 21k bike - 2.5k run

For further information and for quick registration call a member of our Activity Wales team on 01437 766 888.

Happy sunbathing and long may it continue!

Walking Wales - Pembrokehire Dawn Walk returns

Since I completed the Pembrokeshire Dawn Walk with my dad last year, I haven't stopped walking since.

I didn't realise how quick this years walk was going to come around, it is this coming Sunday 16th May. Last year, we were a little unfortunate with the mum, my dad and I were sat around the kitchen table nibbling on our toast as the wind and rain battered against the back door. It was then I decided to slip on my waterproofs. This year though I feel the sun is going to shine!

The Pembrokeshire Dawn Walk on Sunday 16th May is to raise funds for McMillan Cancer Support, with walkers setting off at dawn along a scenic route of 26 miles from Withybush Hospital in Haverfordwest and finishing at Cresselly Cricket Club in time for the well earned party and celebrations!

So this coming Saturday evening will see my mum and I having a generous helping of pasta for tea followed by us kicking back on the sofa watching Britain's Got Talent conserving all our energy for the early start on Sunday.

Back pack, plasters, a bottle of water and I am ready to go...

Just quickly, I wanted to touch on a walking event between the 29th May and 11th June in Pembrokeshire. Coast Path Walk 2010 is an extra special 14 day walk along the full length of the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path - booking is essential.

For further information and booking, call 0845 345 7275.

Let's Walk on Water!

This Easter Heatherton Country Sports Park launched their human hamster ball water activity 'Walk on Water'.

Heatherton's Walk on Water inspiration came from Blue Peter's fun and fitness on water and the ball to bring it to Pembrokeshire has been rolling ever since! Jumping inside the large 6ft inflatable, transparent, plastic human hamster ball offers everyone great fun and has been created for all walks of life to have a go at running, rolling, flipping and spinning on water without any need for your trunks!

Nobody now needs to acquire a miracle to walk on water - just holiday to Pembrokeshire!

For more information and booking, please give a member of our Activity Wales team a call on 01437 766 888 or e-mail
