Islay to Cork in 20 days

Just back from an amazing three weeks in Scotland and Ireland. It started with two journeys to Islay (more on that, later), and ended with a sail down the west coast of Ireland that visited the islands of Tory, Inishbofin, Inishglora, and Iniskea. We also spent some time on the Irish mainland visiting Dingle and Cork. Over the next couple of weeks I will be posting photos from the trip.

2020 Guided Cruise - And Then There was One

First there were ten, then there were six. Now there's only one...

There is one spot left on my 2020 cruise on Hjalmar Bjorge (for a female sharing a cabin). We plan to make a grand loop around the Western Isles, departing Oban April 25, returning May 4. Details can be found on the above 2020 Guided Cruise tab, and this Northern Lights page.

PS: I will be offline for a few weeks on Hjalmar Bjorge's last expedition of the year. We're departing from Oban and, if the wind and sea cooperate, heading down the west and south coast of Ireland to Cork. I'll have stories and photos to share in a few weeks.
