As the weather has been calm and sunny, Mark phoned to see if I'd like to go fishing, the first boat trip of the year. We were out between Brandon and Fermoyle, perfect weather, with a warm breeze - I even had my shorts on! We only caught five mackerel ( well, actually, Mark caught all five...) but it was beautiful on the water. Then back to Mark and Laura's for some fresh grilled fish, and some of Laura's lovely ratatouille that she seemed to conjure out of next to nothing. Rachel and Caitlin were there of course, playing with Padma and keeping Jago entertained. Our guests had a good day, golfing at Castlegregory Golf and Fishing Club, and then walking Mount Brandon, the chickens had put themselves to bed, so everyone was happy.
