Hello all my friends....yes, I'm here and I did indeed survive Omey Island...and what a wonderful treat it was!!! Actually was able to DRIVE across to the island...so didn't need those designer wellies LOL
Bean....yummmmmm, loved the banofii, but so much pie we had to share with the owners at the B&B in Spiddal the 1st night. Couldn't make it straight-on to ferry because of all that rain....what's up Gariem??? You were supposed to have some nice weather waiting for me :-0
Well, enjoyed Aran & spent the night at Clai Ban. Then up very early for the 8:30 ferry back to Rossaveal & then onto Clifden. Again, couldn't make it to Westport the same day because of all that rain....Gariem!!!
My oh My, that SKY ROAD drive is really something else. Yikes....reminded me of the Slea Head drive.
This is the 2nd night here...going to Matt Malloy's tonight for trad music. It sounded great last night & I think he was there joining in, but because it was Valentine's you just couldn't get into the room...so had a pint & left to return tonight.
Off to Kinsale tomorrow...weather allowing!! Almost forgot, along the drive from Omey we saw lots of PEAT on the roadside, but behind a fence...so of course Vicki decided to climb the fence & snatch one....I of course said "you only grabbed 1 after all that work?" I guess she can blame it on the Irish coffee we just had....lost her sensibilities!!!
Oh, I checked out Kylemore Abbey...didn't go inside....just took a picture of myself by the lake that my bedroom will be facing. And I have to tell you that we MUST have something going in that cellar with wine making & loading up on Jameson's because it's in the middle of nowhere....not a single pub nearby...so we can't have the sisters getting thirsty LOL
Well, that's it for now. Unfortunately, I'm not going to have alot of pictures for my travelog cause of the rainy conditions. Not sure when I'll get back on here, but just wanted to give you all a hello...and maybe Marie & Irishfan (I think you're in the Cork area???) can have some better weather waiting for me....Cheers....my hot whiskey is calling me at Matt Malloys!!!! ;-P
