As summer reaches it peak in August, coracle racing at a village festival, jousting at Arundel Castle and a holiday preference for Tenerife confirm its a typical summer!



You Might Change, Yosemite Doesn’t

Yosemite is one of the great names of the USA. Just about everybody has heard of this Californian national park to be found to the east of San Francisco. It’s all accessible to the visitor if you go here for the day. If you plan to stay overnight then there are just about 1,200 rooms and maybe the same again for camping areas. 4 million visitors come every year to visit but most just go to a small part, the valley which is just 1 mile wide and seven miles long. the visitor is missing a lot of the best bits.
So if you are intrigued by Yosemite, try some of these suggestions to avoid the crowds. See the valley by all means. But don’t think you’ve seen it all. Go up into the High Country where you can get up to 8,000 foot above sea level. Hiking up here is a world away from the valley. In Winter, Tiger Pass can get between 10 and 20 foot of snow. From June onwards the roads are cleared and you can walk for miles and see hardly anyone.
