The one thing you get better at as you get older is putting the bad behind you and moving forward. Yesterday’s terrible afternoon session for Team USA had me down last night but today I woke up and started preparing for the last two sessions for tomorrow. I’m ready to go and have plans to not only avoid the blanks but also a goal to score no less than 3rd place in both sessions. That would be huge for our team!
Fishing in the World Masters Flyfishing Championships includes a tour to the Burren region. At 10 AM our Team headed on a bus tour with all the other teams to see some castles, hike and see the Cliffs of Moher. It was a relaxing day and the Cliffs were one of more marvelous views I’ve ever set eyes on.
Our last stop was a late lunch of fish and chips and a Guinness in Doolin. This is a cool little town a couple miles from the ocean and minutes from the Cliffs of Moher. When I come back to Ireland someday with Granny this will be a mandatory stopover so I can enjoy it for more than an hour.
It’s early to bed tonight and game on manana!
