Well, just said goodbye to Markus, Jan and Marie from Blieskastel, Germany. They'd been staying with us for eight nights and this was their second visit to Moan Laur. Really great to see them again, and Markus was keen to practice his English, whilst I was trying to pick up some German ( not easy ! ) He was really pleased as he learnt the meaning of 'muffin top' just to add to 'bingo wings' which he learnt last year...is that what they mean by a cultural exchange ? They enjoyed their stay, and managed to do a little fishing, and caught two mackerel, which was better than last years one ! Cooked 'em up for dinner along with some that a local guy had caught, and even filleted for them - delicious ! We now have a couple from Bayonne, just outside Biarritz staying, Benjamin and Anna, a really nice couple. Benjamin is a mad keen surfer, and was hoping to catch some surf in Brandon Bay or Inch, but the last few days have been really calm. He went and checked out Garrywilliam point anyway, but no action, so was telling me about his trip to some islands near Indonesia - sounded awesome, and he showed me some pictures of sweet waves. Maybe one day....
