Riding with Eddie

After our long ride with Declan, we had dinner and then headed over to visit another of John's friends, Colm. It was a late night, but we were up early to ride out to the airport to meet up with Eddie. We had a screaming tailwind, which was fun, but not a good sign for the return journey.

We cunningly tried to ensure shelter from the wind by seeking out mountains of hay bales.

En route, we also partook of the views from Baldongan Castle

The always quotable Eddie in Skerries harbour. Many cyclists in New England unknowingly quote Eddie, with the attribution given to me. I, however, am merely passing on Eddie's nuggets of wisdom.
