The train was beaten!

Congratulations to all those runners who beat the Talyllyn steam train back to Tywyn yesterday. There were quite a few  out of the hunderds who took part, who actually beat it!
A great day was had by all those who took part in the 29th Annual Race The Train starting in Tywyn yesterday. Well done to all the runners, walkers, organisers and helpers over the weekend (including Mike who was manning the barriers!).
For the first time in years the sun actually came out!
Anyone fancy it next year?

Meanwhile, all cottages occupied again- busy , busy, busy! :-)

Get out and do something!

Feeling down now that the Olympics are over? Then why not book a break at one of our 4 cottages and sample some outdoor activities- you can do open water swimming, rowing, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing and sailing

in Cardigan Bay, the Mawddach Estuary or Dyfi Estuary, mountain biking at Coed y Brenin, cycling, running or walking along the Mawddach Trail, cross country running at the Beat the Train Event starting in Tywyn next Saturday, play football or Rounders (not an Olympic event yet!) in our field, equestrian activities in Friog, etc., etc.,

If you don't want to be quite so energetic you can always go fishing at Cregennan Lakes or join in with the local sandcastle competition.

Or you can always just sit on the patio with a glass of wine and relax!

Surfing West Wales!

 We had all 4 cottages booked this week, all the guests arrived safely on Friday night and were well settled in. Saturday morning started grey and miserable with lots of showers. Its seemed that the terrible weather forecast for West Wales was going to be accurate.
However, Heather arrived from Macclesfield, missing the surf after her season in Devon, and keen to get back on the sea. The clouds started to clear so we set off for Tywyn, had a quick look at the sea from the prom, saw that there was some surf so went back to that great shop in Tywyn , The Rise, and managed to hire their last surf board, which normally was used by the owner's dog! (thus the claw marks!)
We then spent the rest of the afternoon on the beach, trying to catch Heather on camera catching the waves.

 Tywyn beach never looked better.

Oh and we had a little bit of a paddle ourselves.
Talk about the British on holiday!
