Ireland With Dumbo Day Eleven – 17 May 2015

Daisy tries fish of the day, hake, for breakfast, while I tried kippers today.  Efforts to get up and out a bit earlier came to nought, so we again set off around 11:30, not that it matters.

We plug for a longer walk today, the circular around Tomies Wood along the south west side of Loch Leane, a very beautiful walk, mostly straightforward track.  Again very few other people.  One of the few remaining ancient Irish forests in all Ireland.

We considered a second short walk after returning to the car but decided against that idea in favour of the wonderful spa. There we enjoyed the several thermal whatnots – eucalyptus steam, sauna, laconium (very light steam – warm not hot) and the wonderful hammam. 

Then dinner again in the informal bar/lounge area.  The pianist really irritated Daisy this evening, although I think it was the same plonker as the first night.  Daisy had a club sandwich with chips while I had hake in a very tasty sauce with bland mash and nice veg.  We shared an apple and pear crumble desert.  Nice bottle of Californian chardonnay.  Very nice evening.
