We've just returned from a great weekend in Lahinch, County Clare, visiting Brian and Jenny ( and also celebrating my birthday! ) They moved into a lovely place overlooking Lahinch at the end of the summer and are now well settled. I went out with Brian for a windsurf at Liscannor on Saturday which was great - logo high and cross shore, although it was starboard tack, and I was pretty out of practice ! Brian cooked a mean curry for dinner: we were joined by Dan, and even managed to slip out for a couple of beers and watched the end the Rugby - Wales vs. New Zealand - in a pub in Milltown Malbay that had a load of Welshmen in it! Had a good look around the surf spots on Sunday, and ended up back in Lahinch for a quick session. Monday was unfortunately extremely wet, but we went for a drive up to the Burren, and looked around Doolin, before ending up with a quick windsurf at Fanore, small waves, but fun, a lovely spot. I was out on my own as Brian was busy with the latest edition of Windsurfer International Magazine. It was great to see Brian and co, and Caitlin loved seeing Bay, Flynn and Clover again ( all very well behaved! ) Didn't get a chance to take many pictures as we left the camera at home, so there's only one above of the soggy Burren!
