My life on the Cleddau estuary is enchanting, challenging, annoying, beautiful and hard work. I wanted to set up a diary to record and share some of my thoughts and the everyday occurances that I experience here in the heart of Britain's only coastal National Park in the beautiful, rural Welsh county of Pembrokeshire, because our life here is anything but conventional. The next few years are going to see my partner Alun and I developing two businesses and trying to sustain ourselves and our children on the riverbank, by trying out something a bit different - and a lot more fun. This is my record of our very personal quest to go back to a gentler, sweeter, less materialist world, where we will endeavour to live in harmony with the amazing environment in which we have immersed ourselves.
