Wednesday, June 26.
Headed off across the Burran, a limestone outcrop,
towards the cliffs for a view from the sea. Soaring over 700′ above the water. Amazing formations from water and wind.
Three happy sailors.
Cave used in Harry Potter.
Of out to the Aran Islands for. Couple of hours . Stone fences everywhere.
A victim of the dangerous weather and seas.
Nature at its best.
To have arable land the stones had to be removed, seaweed and sand inserted. Hence the stone fences everywhere.
The original church which was continually covered with sand. Eventually they built a wall around it.
The tomb of the patron saint, St Caomban.
Harbour and beach.
An 1100 castle ruins.
People on the beach, some actually in the water. 20 degrees, but not the water.
Headed to KILRUSH for the night. One of Phil’s friends has a pub here bearing the family name. Phil could not get out of Bess quick enough. We ended up with shirts, menus, you name it. All for nothing. Great food and drink.
Kids at play opposite camp. All in wetsuits at 8.30 at night.
Bit of history about the town.
The mills and the monastery.
This bloke has a lot of influence in the area. Pours a lot of money into the community.
Wooden cigarette machine in the pub.
Time gentlemen please.
Another day done and dusted.
