Nothing memorable about this stay. It was a reminder not to leave things until there are no options left. The room was very average and with a charge of 70 Euros B&B which we were able to bring down to 65 Euros, was still over priced. The bathroom was very musty smelling and I think the bed must have been one of the originals. Grateful we were only there for one night. We were the only guests and I'm not surprised why.

... She was killed there in 1971 by crossfire and was the 100th fatality of the Troubles. In the original mural, a gun was painted next to Annette, and there was a large silhouette of a butterfly. Today, the gun has been repainted and broken, and the butterfly has been painted in pretty colors to signify that peace has finally come.
While we were on our walk, several schoolchildren walked by. Martin remarked that you wouldn't have seen that a few years ago, children ...
... in the first half of September so we plan to resume our passage when after all that.
This morning we agonised a bit, discussed options and decided to motor for half an hour South, moor and go ashore at Cushendall. The engine complained but didn't konk out. Unfortunately the outboad motor for the tender wasn't happy and we weren't prepared to risk breaking down half way to shore, so we are back on board reading, praticing Ukelele and what have you until 5am ...
... br> All we did in Bushmills today was go to the Tourist office to arrange accommodation. We found another quiet B&B, this one out of Cushendall in the midst of the Antrim glens. The view from our bedroom is of the Red Bay, yet another pretty bay, with fields, a few houses and cliffs.
On the suggestion of our hostess we booked at the local ...
