Ah well, the plan to watch Hooker racing didn’t quite work out. Seeing the harbour at Kinvarra on Thursday at mid tide we didn’t appreciate how it was at low tide – just acres of rock and bladder-wrack. When we caught up with a race programme and everything seemed to start at 4pm we thought “Ah well, there will still be boats coming and going, jilling about in the bay to photograph”. Not a bit of it. Never mind, we saw lots and took plenty of pics, then drove home the scenic route back through Connemara. A lovely day. We now have the perfect excuse to return tomorrow and see if we can get a bit more lucky.
