Tuesday 14th – kid agrees I’m hardcore 😜

So today, was supposed to be a rest day in Westport but having spent three hours trying to sort out my acommendation for the next week in the South which, incidentally, were short on availability and high on price. I guess that figures!

So I decided to go out for a spin and took the back roads as usual, heading for Doo Lough. Even decided to give the drone its first outing.

[Erriff Falls near Leenane – these falls made famous by John Wayne in the move “The Quiet Man” which was filmed around this area.]

Then decided to go to a nice little cafe I know in Leenane for a very late lunch which turned out to be a cup of tea and a slice of carrot cake!

I intended to return to Westport “by another way” but this plan was to be jinksed because part of the road had fallen away – got the drone out again.

Went into the town and noticed a young girl laughing when she saw me 😅. I said “don’t laugh” and promptly parked next to a line of Harleys and BMWs with which I was then engaged my a young lad – a young Phil Lynott lookalike – asking me where I’d come from. I told him and asked him to choose which of us was “hardcore” – the Nancy boys on the big bikes or “Moi” – he didn’t hesitate!! What a laugh.

Utterly fed up with chips went to a Nepalese restaurant which was delicious – damn nuisance when the head sweats and you have no hair though. The only time I ever ate Nepalese before was a seriously messy evening in Johnny Gurkhas in Aldershot. Is it still there?

Anyway at least now the wind has moderated and the rain too and I’m now driving “downhill” along the “Wild Atlantic Way”!

Watch this space!
