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.
Bats are hunting in the fading daylight above boat and water.

Friday 20/04/2012 Carnadoe Quay - Kilglass - Grange - Carnadoe Quay
Length of boat trip: 5.2 hours
Motto of the day: Peaceful Carnadoe Waters
We are up early this morning. It is cold although it hasn’t frozen tonight on the boat. Around 8 am arrives Trevor from Galway. He launches his dinghy and has a first drive into the bays and the entrance from Lough Boderg.
Then we tow his tender and start for a slow trip on the Carnadoe Waters. The navigation is winding through reed beds of Carnadoe Lough.
We reach Carrigeen Cut and drive after going through westwards into the Mountain River.
