We meet only one boat on our way to Lanesborough. Lough Ree welcomes us with only a few ripples. At Inchcleraun we have a side trip to Barley Harbour. The Mouse Ear Stick is missing.

We then go on further down the lake and north of Nuns Island to the east. We have a look into the Inny River where a group of curlews rest on the shore.

We would like to moor to the bank overnight but the weather forecast has predicted for tomorrow a frontal system with rain and gale force wind and so we go slowly down along the east coast of Lough Ree, pass the Napper Rocks and drive south of the Hexagon Shoal east around Hare Island into the Inner Lakes where we moor to the barrel in Lough Ballykeeran.
