As the sun is setting down the last boat besides us also leaves.

Later a boat suddenly passes the jetty in the dark with no navigation lights at speed. I take a photo and he sounds the horn twice. The second photo is afterwards brightened with computer software. Willi secures the glasses and a bottle from the table and then the boat starts to roll.

The rest of the evening is quiet and the Milky Way is mirrored in the surface of the glassy river.


Sunday 20/09/09 Castle - Ballyconnell - Haughton Shore

Length of boat trip: 7.2 hours

Motto of the day: A boat on the rocks and kingfishers on the Woodford

The sun gives us again a bright 'Hello' in the morning. The dewdrops on the boat twinkle. Wafts of mist rise from the warm river after the cool night. The fish hunt stoneflies and the swans, coots and great crested grebes have the peaceful waterway all to themselves.
