Thursday 03/05/2012 Terryglass - Black Lough - Mountshannon

Length of boat trip: 4.25 hours

Motto of the day: A summer day on the lake

It is misty and calm in the morning. Donal leaves around 10 to Portumna and we start a while later in the opposite direction. We chuggle around Cregg Point with view to Cloondagauv Castle; Cluain D Dhamh; lawn of the two oxen.

Cloondagauv Castle









It becomes increasingly warm and sunny on our way to Black Lough with the prominent ruins of Annagh Castle.

Here we spend a couple of hours at anchor. We watch how a ferry brings a tractor to Illaunmore.

In the evening we lift the anchor and have a look into Garrykennedy harbour, but the floating jetty there bounces in a F3 from NE and so we drive on to Mountshannon.
