Our guide, Peter from Wonderful Ireland has visited and provided maps, tour guide sheets, water and information. So far we have awarded the a 4 to 4.5 stars for his efforts. Very good.

Breakfast at the Sea View is also good and Joanna our host is a very affable woman. Altogether a first rate place to stay apart from the rooms being a bit warm, probably a very good thing on most occasions.

Not a bad day. 25,000 steps according to my new pedometer which equates to 20kms. There are some fabulous views and the weather is mixed (this is the west coast of Ireland after all). Our packed lunch is ample and we get to The Anchor at about Anascaul about 3:30.

Sadly we are one down as the 'flu has captured one of the party. Bridgett from the Anchor very kindly whisks us back to the doctor at Camp for some medication and advice to rest. Very helpful on a walking trip but them's the breaks.

World cup fever had gripped the party and we try very hard to stay awake through a the Paraguay v Ghana(?) game. It's had going though, my legs are very tired.
