The wind is howling through the trees outside and rain is lashing against the windows. At work today I attended a mental health awareness course. Among the list of '5-a-day' ingredients to boost your mental wellbeing were 'learning', 'connecting with others' and 'physical activity'. On that basis I would like to recommend….
It was a Saturday afternoon seashore foraging course, organised by Ed from the fabulous Llys Meddyg hotel in Trefdraeth (Newport Pembs). After a breath stealing few hours on the beach, we headed back to the hotel to cook up a seashore supper, eaten in front of the log fire in the hotel bar. Heavenly!
*(it was my idea - but the lure of a weekend away with bit of fine dining thrown in convinced Mr A-P)
collecting razor clams and mussels on a beach in Pembrokeshire, in weather as bad as today
the wind was so strong it was hard to stay upright
essential equipment for extreme foraging - plastic bags and an iPhone!
It might be hard to tell from these blurry photos - but we had FUN!!!
All the bad stuff and busyness blew away.
We learned some new skills and emptied our heads at the same time.
(We even stopped making lists of things to do).
The next day the weather was like this….
Ed was running the course again on the Sunday,
(for wimps this time obviously).
