Another overcast and wet day on the west coast of Ireland. Travelled firstly to the Cliffs of Moher which are high cliffs on the Atlantic coast. Unfortunately visibility was reduced to almost nil. Nextly drove through limestone district of Burren ...
... into the hostel and this lovely guy checked me in. I'm staying at the chain of Paddy's here. I stayed at the Derry one the other week.
I checked into Facebook then.
Only to see a status by my fave musican ever, Colm Keegan. It read: "Back in Dublin this week doing a few gigs and then a couple in Glasgow next week".
My dearest Colm. Thankyou for the most useless piece of information ever given.
A few gigs in ...
... Then I met Grace and Laura.
Two lovely Irish girls I began talking to.
I had a couple beers with them and then went into town.
Somehow I ended up in a car and got scared (I was with them still) and so I only had one drink at the pub and walked home.
But on the upside, one of them knew Keith Harkin! One step closer in my six degrees of separation.
... because he couldn't see.
Did I mention that they are amazing surfers? Did I also mention that although I am not a great surfer I managed to keep up.
Paddling wise and also just went out a bit further. When I wasn't faceplanting a wave or falling of my board from lying down....so basically when I wasn't surfing, I felt quite good!
So yeah, good night! And goodnight!

... rough. The coach offered to help me once more, ‘one for the road’ as he put it.
But it was so muddled, that we never actually found a wave like the ones I was looking for.
I just said I would get one more myself.
So I did, I looked for it, paddled and got my last wave of the day.
And it was a really good wave.
I took my board up and crashed next to the other two people in the group, not able to get the smile off my face.
