I set off at 8am from Llanafan to try and catch the remaining wind this morning... but didn't make it past Aberystwyth. Roads closed.
Sat in a jam for 45 minutes trying to get through town but gave up and went home wondering what was going on. Couldn't believe it when
I saw News 24. Glad I gave up. Arriving at Ynyslas and not getting out on the water is one thing, but failing to even get there due
to the weather is a novelty... Having said that I had another first last week when someone elses gazebo wrapped itself around the van
at 3am whilst camping on the Gower last week. I love British summertime.

sorry for the people in the troubles. as far as the kitesurfing went saturday afternoon was epic.full sun WSW and some nice swell left
over from fridays nonesense.; a lovely ending to a rubbish weather week for me.and then the drive home: went up through talybont and
poor people with their furniture out by the road drying.
