... peddled along. Free except that Linda had started her day with the 7.15 bus to Tralee while I had started my ride after 8.30 and was then due to pick her up from the bus station with no means of getting in touch. My answer to her 3am "what time should I give up hope?" was a simple "I'll be there" but I had to hope she was as keen as me to meet and would wait.

... everything in Ireland it seems!) If it is too windy for the boats, they won't go. We were lucky. For the first time this week, the tours were operating.
