Well yesterday was a laugh. We went horse riding on the beach. Now my horse was a wild mustang that went by the name of "Paddy". We bonded straight away as man displayed his calm authority over the noble beast.

We were booked for 2pm but the weather was a little unpredictable so at 11am we rang to see if they could take us now as the skies were blue. No problem so off we went and of course when we hit the beach the heavens opened.

It didn't detract from a lovely time and Paddy and myself had a wonderful time.......

Paddy started sagging the minute he realised he"d be carrying Ger!  

A few notes after the past couple of days -

Poker is rigged.

Young girls should not be permitted to play poker.

Poker dice is rigged.

Young girls should not be permitted to play poker dice.

Roshambo is rigged.

Young girls should not be permitted to play Roshambo.

The pub is within walking distance...provided you know how to walk.

Went to the beach at Kell's Bay and Laxie's wee girls went for a dip. Laxie paddled, I have pictures but she has promised to kill me if they ever get the light of day. It's a lovely spot, blue flag beach and clear waters. The only suprising thing is the amount of Jellyfish that are in these waters. The beach had quite a few washed up.

They departed back to Laxie Towers in the afternoon and myself and the wee man decided to head for Valencia Island for a spot of tea. We took the short route via the ferry which was good value at 8 Euro with the added attraction of a couple of dolphins swimming a little way off. Some people pay 50 Euro to go out in a boat to see the fecking dolphins. We got the cut price view.

I had a delicious smoked Haddock meal and the wee man had pasta as we lazed around in the afternoon sun. Yes surprise, surprise the sun was shining in Kerry.

Back at the house, and a little snooze on the couch before heading to the pub for a few rounds of the black stuff..

Great life....

Not suitable for any page, never mind the front page!

Ger was walking with some difficulty after, but I"d be more worried about Paddy"s ability to walk after an hour + with Ger on his back!  lol
