    Hi Andie, no we spent two wonderful months on Cork coast last summer based in Kinsale. Relaxing on Lough Derg this season.

    Looks fantastic! Part of me misses the lake environment for the reasons perfectly portrayed by your first, beautiful, pic. Enjoy!

    Oyster Haven east of Kinsale


    Inflatable paddle boards were put to much use and super for exploring the caves and coves


    Sandycove


    Cobh (formerly Queenstown) where Titanic and Lusitania passengers embarked from


    Dive school


    Baltimore from the anchorage


    5am awoken at anchor by RNLI heading out on a shout


    Sunrise off Sherkin Island


    Moonset over the old Friary


    Fastnet Rock


    Anchorage NW of Baltimore


    The 102ft Lock at the Hydro Dam connected to inland Lough Derg


    In the lock. The water level changes so slowly you wonder if your moving at all.


    View of Tralee Bay from Fenit where the worlds larges Liebherr cranes are exported


    So blessed and fortunate to be able to cruise this wonderfully scenic and isolated part of the world at the very edge of the Atlantic.

    Great pics of a great location. I’ve done a few locks in my time but that one would scare the life out of me
    I especially liked the picture of Fastnet!

    The lock is actually very gentle but it’s a little bit like being on the set of ‘the hero’s of telemark’ and you half expect Kirk Douglas and his commandos to appear any moment.

    As you liked it here’s another passing short of a tamed Fastnet Rock.




    The Skelligs (as featured in recent Star Wars movies). These islands were inhabited before Western Europe

    Fantastic pictures and beautiful scenery. Particularly liked the moon shots

    Fastnet and the Skelligs look intimidating and appealing at the same time.

    Your teak looks nice!
