We left our bikes in a secure compound on the mainland and got the small passenger ferry across to the island, it appeared most of our usual team were partying in their tent with a vengeance, so much so that Snibs wins the early to bed prize after I believe a couple of spectacular falls, some throwing up and the result was night night at half six!
A great weekend with wonderful people, we met Gary from Belfast who is doing a Canada to Argentina trip later in the summer and were able to tell him some stories and offer advice, hopefully he gets a blog going so we can all follow his adventures down.
The usual overindulgence on Saturday night and luckily a sunny but cold morning. Great run home with another load of good memories and new friends made, motorcycling, ye canny whack it!!
