Tom, Alison n Lauren joined us for a Coasteering adventure last week. Tom has paraplegic cerebral palsy, but that didn’t douse his thirst for adventure. After wriggling into not one but two toasty warm wetsuits, buoyancy aid, helmet and all the other kit we ventured over to the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy.
A scramble down the rocks and they were off, first a float in the lagoon to get used to the kit, then a couple of jumps from the pontoon (thanks to the Red Bull Cliff Diving folks for letting us use the pontoon).
Tom and Alison floated in the lagoon while Lauren took on the tower jumps. They then took on the power of the incoming tide by drifting up the channel as the sea flooded into the lagoon (boy was it tanking in that day!).
After a float across the lagoon, inspecting jelly fish enroute it was back to the beach for tea & cookies.
“I had a brilliant time thank you so much :)” Tom
“Thank you so much for such a brilliant day, you were extremely positive from the start and never made us feel like it wasn’t possible. It’s because of people like you that the world is slowly becoming a more equal place for people with disabilities and their families, hope to come back again! x” Lauren
