We drive to Jamestown and then through Albert Lock.

On Lough Tap a boat is grounded. We assume that this was caused by a technical problem with the steering. Another cruiser from the Albert Marina pulls her off.

We cross Lough Boderg and just at the moment when we arrive at Carnadoe Quay a shower with hail starts. After that we enjoy the moving clouds and the evening colours.
