    Breakfast fresh out of the oven


    Dinner


    Holy Island inhabited since 1100ad


    Aft the river shannon snakes its way into Killaloe, Irelands ancient capital and the home of Brian Boru who defeated the Vikings


    The Brompton folding bikes have enhanced cruising more than anything giving us great mobility ashore.

    A few from my 3 week cruise from Lough Ree to Baltimore. Fabulous weather and wonderful cruising.

    Thanks Noel. I took the photo of Lots Wife on my iPhone. It was a fab morning and I managed to get the yacht in the background also.
    Yes, we landed at the beach on Great Blasket. There were lots of seals playing around at the north end. It was fine going ashore but a bit rough getting off the beach. I bought a new 2.9m aluminium hulled tender and it was great. very light.
    I also stopped for lunch in Portmagee. I entered from the south side at high tide. Really spectacular entrance. I tied to the visitors mooring on outside of the pontoon and we got a goor reception from the Skellig tour boat owners. They weren't used to seeing many visiting boats. The bridge no longer opens so we went under at two hours after HT. The sound above the bridge is polka-dotted with lobster pots for the first 100-200m but it's a lovely stretch of water after that up to Knightstown.

    Some great pics of what looks to be a fantastic cruising ground. SWMBO hails from the north and seeing these is whetting my appetite for spending some boating time in Ireland.

    Thanks for the photos. Weather hasn't been great this year unfortunately. You actually passed by us in Killaloe over the August bank holiday weekend and back into Kincora.

    We also bought two paddle boards this season. They've been one of the best additions to the boat and good fun/exercise.
