She moved inside later on though, as the sky became really threatening again, but there was no more rain.
Once again Shannon did her "roadkill" impression. It was the Heritage boaters in Athlone who likened her to this! We thought it was rather unkind!
We left Portrunny late on Sunday, once the wind had lessened, and the sun lit up Dog Island as we sailed past.
Clouds behind us gave a strange effect, but again we avoided any rain.
We moored at Ballyleague overnight, leaving the barge 4E there when we left to continue up the River Shannon.
We left the River Shannon below Tarmonbarry, to go along the Clondra Canal and up the lock at Clondra. This lock mooring was under water when we came down Clondra lock in the spring.
Our summer lockkeeper wasted no time in bringing us up the lock!
Noel moved his boat up to make room for us, on the lower mooring below Richmond Harbour.
