Having the time and the freedom to just pick up sticks and roam is one of my joys in life. Time to visit places, which are in easy reach, but often escape that visit. Now having the privilege of a work-life balance to indulge there is no excuse. Wales in such a place, I’ve visited Cardiff on many occasions, spent time exploring the beautiful Brecon Beacons and ventured to Newport to visit colleagues, but her coastline has remained a mystery until now. My first steps are the Conwy Bay towards the Conwy Morfa, which shapes the south side of the estuary of her river. From members of the night fishing community standing patiently in cold waters to the long dog walks along unspoilt beaches my first steps are unlikely to be my last.
