Saundersfoot Beach, Glen Beach And Misc

I'm throwing it up here, here's the last of the big batches I have from last year (that I've processed). Autumnal trips on the beach at Saundersfoot, building dams, round the other site of the harbour on Glen Beach, and some odds and ends from Haverfordwest and Manorbier Castle.

There you go, those have been sitting in my web ready folder for months, now I've got a pile equally as big that I haven't had the chance to look at, but I will soon. I'll be getting full-time help with my work from Monday, so hopefully that will free up a bit of time for me to have some fun and catch up with the photos on here.

Tenby's Castle Beach - Sand Castle Competition And Cave

I'm just throwing up some more nice images from last year, this time all taken around September time, at the end of the Summer season. The first lot are of the Tenby Sandcastle Competition that was held as a part of the Tenby Art Festival. The event was on Castle Beach, and the photos are off the event and other bits of the beach. It looked like fun, next year I'd love to enter with Elis. Everyone looked like they were having a good time and there was live music on the beach, and rare for last year, some sun!

Prior to the castle competition are some shots taken in the large cave under St Catherine's Island. It's only accessible on really low tides that happen infrequently, but luckily I was there with Elis at just the right time. My mum keep's telling Elis' cousins that it's the Mermaids cave, and if you go in there magic happens. Elis has absorbed some of this mythology himself, and was very excited to go in and explore.

Last Summer's London Trip

Well, as promised, some photos. I think the best I can do is little and often. Plus the shits Brits is on and I'm at a loss end so here we go. We took a trip last Summer to London for a few days with Elis, we went to London Zoo, a couple of museums and took a tourist trip on the river. My camera actually died half way through the visit, but here's a few photos from then. There's a couple from the deserted penguin enclosure at the zoo and a couple of views from the river boat trip.

A Cheery Wave From A Stranger

Well, here's me posting again after almost a half a year's break from the old web fun. Happy New Year to anyone still dropping by on the off chance I posted. Part of the reason I haven't posted was the fact the site was not showing up for people on BT powered connections, self included. I finally got around to moving the site to a new server and that seems to have cured the problem. So now I can actually see the site I can feel guilty for not having done anything to it.

I've also been really busy, not just a little busy, but non-stop 24 hours a day busy, albeit in a slovenly kind of way. Here's a few highlights from the last few months. As well as running Day Trip Media all by my ownsome (until March when I take on a full time employee) I've also been busy setting up not just one, but two limited companies, both of which will be ongoing businesses alongside my sole trader work. Bingo Head LTD is based solely around my bingo work, and will be a bit different to what I'm doing now as it's eventually going to be up for sale when its reached a certain level of earnings.

The other company is a joint venture with my good friend Nursey, we're hell bent on making a low budget horror film, with money pimped from investors in my other work sphere. We've set up Dogs Of Annwn LTD as our film production company and are currently looking at a joint venture with another film company and hope to make our first feature by the summer. Both companies are in their early stages and I've got all the fun around setting up bank accounts, sorting out paperwork and that do, alongside the sheer mountainous amount of work I have to do as Day Trip Media, hence the need for a full time employee.

I have been taking photos in all that time too, as well as launching web sites to do with Blu-ray players and HD camcorders. I still have a load of shots from the summer (last summer, yipes!) to feature on here too. I'll try and stick some more up shortly. At the moment I've got a load of Macs to sort out, I've upgraded my iMac to a newer model so the employee can have the old one. I also plumped for a bargain Macbook Air, which I mistakenly reinstall following some faff with my other iMac. The iMac was the problem, not the air. Oh dear. Don't believe that 'It just works' hype for one second.

So yeah, lots going on, really only just scratched the surface, but I want to stay sane and do the stuff here I used to enjoy doing, so now I've broken the big break, maybe I can get back to boring people here too.
