We had a fast run down to the airport,
although we were in no hurry.
Since Marie and Conor had an evening flight, I had suggested a
route for them to the east of Ennis, exploring the lakes there,
before returning through Sixmilebridge to Shannon Airport. Strangely
they preferred to accompany us to the airport for our afternoon
flight, for the pleasure of seeing us dismantling our bikes and
squeezing them into the boxes. Conor gave us several demonstrations
of how their bikes were prepared for the flight to Heathrow - ambling
over to his bike and bending down to the tyre valves. O how we laughed!
Later David and Gareth reassembled their bikes at Prestwick Airport
for the short ride home, and the following day the trip finished
for Gareth with a ride from Stonehaven to Auchenblae.
