May in Bloom

St Johns Village - in the centre of the Isle of Man... absolutely breath taking!

Sunshine every day certainly brings out lots of smiles.
Theia is loving every minute of it :)
2010 is looking like a scorcher!
Anglesey Sea Kayak Symposium 2010
Adventurous Experiences staff head over as guest coaches to the SKUK symposium hosted by Nigel Dennis, every year. It is based in a perfect position to paddle 'The Stacks' - a series of headlands protuding out into strong tide, and the resulting tidal races and overfalls attract paddlers from all over the world. (I met coaches and students from 14 different countries during the festival).

Apart from paddling and coaching in a different environment, we were there to promote the Isle of Man Sea Kayak Symposium - held in the last weekend in September, every year.
This will be our 08th year of hosting the event, and judging from the predicted summer and interest at the Anglesey event, this year will be a cracker!

Watching the Climbers at Castell Helen sea cliff as we paddled beneath, nesting Guillimots and Razorbills (as well as a few other antics they were up to) and exploring the caves with a little bit of swell running...

Great fun, thanks for a terrific weekend!
