Kayaking and Ice
On Saturday I ran a 3 star training course on the Menai Straits. It was surprisingly pleasant in the sun, even though the temperatures were low. I was out with Leo and Gary, going through a range of strokes and playing in the various currents created in the Swellies.
The plan was to go to Llangollen today, but over the weekend the river has started to freeze over -removing eddies! We decided conditions therefore weren't ideal and postponed the assessment until a latter date.
Instead I went out to Cromlech Ice Falls in the afternoon, which are climbable in places, with some friends. No one was about, so it was nice to enjoy some roadside ice in the peace and quiet.
