We have had another few good days here: at the moment we have John and Val visiting from Sheringham, Norfolk. They're here for two weeks, but had a night in Cork to see their son, Luke, who is driving Dolly Partons band around on her tour. They went to see the show, and said it was really good, and were well looked after.

I managed to get an excellent windsurfing session at Kilcummin the other day: light winds close to the beach, so hard work getting through the waves, but once you did get out it was great. Today was the christening of Mairt and Una's newest arrival, Oscar. It was a short and sweet ceremony, with lots of kids in the congregation which was nice to see. Then it was back to theirs for refreshments and a barbeque, but yours truly slipped away to Fermoyle for another quick windsurf!

We've had to give up the hatching for a bit, as the last lot of eggs did nothing but get smelly! So, off went Rachel to the mart in Dingle and brought back two ducklings. They are only 2 1/2 weeks old, so we have some more work to do until they can join the other ducks once they are bigger.
