    John

    I would be up for it, and would stay over due to distance

    Biggest problem I have is lot of business travelling over the next 6 months so the earlier a date can be set the better for me

        Definitely up for it (Me+1) depending on work / timing as I have a lot of weeknds already booked this year

        Re acommodation - We may well camp if everywhere's looking booked & the forecast is good

        As John already knows timing is everything if you want to get the pictures of sandeels in mouths and you need to plan on being out on the 1st boat and back on the last to get the best time

        Regards

          I would be interested John. Would be a good opportunity to hire the 90-250mm lens and see how it performs.

            I tried booking an accommodation on Skomer for the spring a while ago & everything was booked out already, at least for the "interesting" months (i.e. when the Puffins have their chicks). However, there seemed plenty of room before April and after July/August. Apparently, you have to book 2 years ahead?!?

              Hi E-3

              I am sure no one here would say no just because your new to the forum, the trips are a good way to meet fellow e-system users and see various bits of kit.

              Cheers

                  You would be more than welcome to have a go with mine (If John lets me come)......................................not that this is any kind of bribe

                    That's very kind of you to offer. You do realise that once I have the lens you will have lost it for the remainder of the day

                    John, E-3 should most definitely be given high priority on this trip

                        Can I come if I stick an Olympus label over the Panasonic logo on my camera?

                        I'm sure there will be a camping/caravanning site near enough for us to stop over.

                          If I remember rightly there was campsite on the road down to St Martins Haven. When we passed by last year it looked like a group were getting ready to walk the 500yds down to the ferry - maybe Musicman will have more info, if not it must be online somewhere...

                          I'll put my name down as a tentative yes to this - I definitely want to go back there some time this year but It's going to be a very busy summer so it will depend on dates and a bit of good luck that it won't clash with anything...

                            There are definitely a number of reaonable campsites in the Marloes area and a pub in Marloes

                            There are more facilities over at Broadhaven which is just 20 minutes away

                            I for one would plan to make a weekend of it. There are plenty of other intersting places in the area or on the way. Penbroke/Carew Castles both on the way home if you take the southern route. Oakwood Theme park (no thanks!) & Many More

                              I would love to get to Skomer, however as it's over the other side of the country I'll need to make a long weekend of it.

                              The longer notice you can give of the chosen date the more likely I can arrange something.

                              Regards
