We met Pamela who, at 78 years old, met Prince Charles last week in Sligo. Pamela tells us her children are named Charles, Ann, Andrew and Edward. She told Prince Charles this and he said he would tell his mum.
Today was a day to rest the legs. We could not completely abandon the bikes so we included a little tour to Strandhill and Sligo Airport.
What we like about this town are all the locally owned shops. It is quite unlike our country where national chains dominate our centres. Here it is the opposite and nearly everything is local. It is only Tesco who have a foothold and its store is in the town centre. These are some images old and new
Dagmar enjoyed herself at the Model Art Gallery
And we both enjoyed the Abbey
Everywhere there were celebrations of W.B. Yeats. We cycle to the coast at Strandhill in the afternoon and look out to sea knowing that the next land would be Canada

We cycle a modest 15 miles today
