Last Wednesday the 20th of April was a hard one to organize. Becka arranged to meet some North Wales cavers in the car park near Mold at 6:45pm to go down the second entrance of Milwr Tunnel. I was to go down Poachers Cave nearby with a friend who could give us all a lift but could only leave Liverpool at 6:45 because that’s when his girlfriend finished work.

Result: misery.

Maybe it’s just a series of apparently unproductive days and no way through them.

Two weekends ago on a gloriously sunny day the autopilot took us to Yorkshire for caving, rather than to Anglesey for diving in the calm weather, and I spent every hour regretting it. Becka did a Spectacle-Vespers exchange (it was declared too hard for me) and then on Sunday we went surveying in a flood-prone cave while the others tried to blast some rocks further in (the charges didn’t go off).

This was either Saturday or Sunday 12 or 13 March, taking a brief break from all the coding going on during the month while Becka was away.

It’s probably about two kms from my house in another world, having paddled from Rock Ferry on the Wirral side of the Mersey to a point on the Liverpool side at high tide. The river is not as boring as it seems from above. It is very active with the winds and the tidal currents. Many more kayakers would be out there if they only knew this fact.
