Kinvara Regatta

Well it was a nice day to be sure it twas it twas, drove down to Kinvara and inland to Ballyvaughan /Ennis where we visited a cave and bird sancturary (jail)  then back to Kinvara to see the classic Glaway Hookers end their race. It was a nice day with sunny intervals and brief showers just to remind one we were not in the Med to be sure.
The cave and bird sanctuary were interesting although I dont really like to see birds caged especially birds of prey, anyway I think the owls face says it all.

I have worked out that the Irish kilometer is actually a different measurement than the usual kilometer, the equation is take the Irish km times it by 5 and devide by 3 that give you a true distance, either that or take the "km" off and add "mls"

We drove through the "Burren" on our travels as well which was an experience.
