The Plains

05th December 2010
The craft fair continued in Foxford today, but we awoke to road conditions the worse we have had, we now had sheet ice almost everywhere and conditions were really really dangerous. I seemed to spend the day driving ! firstly my daughter Grainne agreed to "man" the craft fair so we drove at 10 - 20 miles an hour to Foxford avoiding the ditches. I then had to drive to Knock airport. Our son Barry was 21 today and had travelled home for the weekend from Bangor University in Wales to celebrate. He had to travel back today and I left him at the airport at 2.30 for his flight at 3.30, he was still at the airport at 10pm and was eventually flown to Manchester, he was meant to be flying to Liverpool, what a way to spend your 21st!! While he waited he discovered he was going to miss the surprise party his girlfriend Georgia had arranged for him back in Bangor !! So it was then back to Foxford to pack up the Craftfair which finished early as nobody was visiting due to the road conditions. I took todays picture at the airport, not a bad view from an airport is it ! You are looking at the plains {no pun intended) of Mayo with Nephin mountain in the background.


Photo comment By Omnishots: Oh poor, poor Barry! What a miserable 21st birthday he had! However, I note from the above that you made beautiful mileage out of your trip to Knock. Great Panno
