Next it was on to the barge DeEems, for a cup of tea with Robert and Karen.
Robert has been working on their tiller, but the term "messing about in boats" comes to mind!
We saw 59M leaving later on, but hope to see our friends again before we leave Ireland.
In the afternoon we went across to the Lough Key mooring by dinghy. There is quite a bit of visiting carried on in this way. On the way back it seemed that The Puzzler had grown a mast!
However it was an optical illusion, as the pirate ship is behind us now.
A glorious sunset can be seen over the trees of Droman Island.
Andy has made a new friend in Shadow.
Our neighbours have been rigging out their new laser, and it is sailing well.
Shadow is happy to doze beside The Puzzler.
In the evenings there are often lovely cloud formations beyond the trees at this secluded corner of Lough Key.
Higher up the mares tails are feeling the wind.
On Tuesday, Aquilegia was the first barge to make her way across the lough.
Float # 1 came soon after. Will John catch Aquilegia before the lock?
Michael followed a couple of hours later. Do let us know if any of you would like copies of these photos, in a wider picture.
