Today we visited Croagh Patrick, a mountain that tradition says that St Patrick had a 40 day retreat on the summit in the 400s. It was raining, windy and cold so we didn't climb it.

Roundstone turned out to be a very friendly town in which to stay. Our B&B owners were very nice people who wanted to make sure we were comfortable. Breakfast was, of course, the full Irish fare which included soda bread. Soda bread is like a five grain bread and soooo good! After breakfast, we were out the door and on our way before 10 a.m.
