This photograph was taken at sunrise June 2006

I was taking my youngest son William to his 1st Nationwide sailing event at Abersoch in North Wales

We left Sussex at 11pm, after resting up near Telford , we travelled via Shrewsbury & Welshpool crossing mid Wales & arriving at the coast at Barmouth approx 6 am

Not sure of the exact location of this but I do know we were quite close to the English Border as it was still only 04:30 am

    Lovely shot Mike – I can almost smell the dampness of the dew in the grass!

  • I was pleased to rediscover this,
    We were reminiscing about my trips away with Will sailing (He is in Italy at present training for the RS500 Europeans).
    I have quite a few old images that I ignored until I came to RB
