First I stopped to pick up my friend Dave in Doolin. He's got an extra dog; he's a fine looking guy and well mannered. He'd be a good friend to anyone. Honestly, I was tempted to take him but not certain I could get him through customs. Though I do have 2 passports, hum.....
And here is the amazing thing. A few years ago now Rachel and I recorded a tune by Christy Barry. Well, Christy Barrly lives in Lidoonvarna and last night I got to play for him the recording from my I Phone. He absolutley loved it and said that the whistle player has fine "lift" in her playing and he thanked us for such a fine rendition his tune. It was an honor in deed! Christy is on the right below.
I spent a leisurely day Wednesday taking advantage of the very warm weather and sunny skies to walk from Kilfinnane to Ballylanders and back, exploring trails and mountainsides. It was a lovely walk and I have the blisters on my feet to proove it! Here are a few of the sights along the way.
