Five reasons to pick up a paddle
Need a reason to GetOutside this week? Cat Webster gives us five great ones for why you should pick up a paddle and get out on the water this National Go Canoeing Week.
The effects of the long dry spell can be seen in this image of Trefor Harbour on the Lleyn Peninsula, Wales, taken by Tony Pickford.
Trefor is a small village which overlooks Caernarfon bay in the far north-west of Wales. It used to have a quarry that supplied granite for curling stones, which were shipped out using the large pier that extends out into the natural bay. Nowadays it's popular with pleasure boats and is also a handy stop on the Wales Coastal path.
In the background, rising on the other side of the harbour, you can see the hill peaks of Gyrn Goch (492m) and Gyrn Ddu (522m) which are a steep climb and have a pair of ancient cairns near the peaks. This wallpaper image for August 2018 was sent in by Tony Pickford.
