First, let's get this out of the way...
...no, the donkey is not coming home with us!
Today we biked all around Inishbofin island and it was just beautiful!
We took the ferry over from scenic Cleggan...
Yes, we've been eating quite a lot of seafood in Ireland, though no fish and chips yet!
There are many sheep here...
These are the ruins of a 14th-century chapel...
What a stunning spot.
There are beautiful beaches on the island too.
And some derelict cottages (one of which I saw for sale for 200,000 Euros!!!)
Here comes Gordon! We always wear helmets when biking but threw caution to the wind today. Luckily we survived! We are definitely wearing helmets when we go trail riding on horses tomorrow.
And there he goes!
We relaxed on this stone beach for a while. It so reminds me of Nova Scotia here. I miss living by the north Atlantic.
Note Gordon riding through the sheep!
Words written in stone in the bog.
More of our woolly friends!
Spectacular! Definitely one of the most scenic bike rides I've ever done.
There he is again!
Old lighthouse at entrance to harbour.
The bike ride wore us out!
Hmmm.... looks like it wore Gordon out a bit more than me!!
