BereIsland Posted May 18, 2006 Share Posted May 18, 2006 Just got back from a trip there with my friend Dave and his R850R. Got the Swansea Cork ferry, and arrived into Bere Island to see my Auntie Kathleen on a lovely day, we were very lucky with the weather. here's us tied onto the ship Its a super ferry Always get tired around 2:00pm This is a view of Bere Island from Cloughland Hill There are two martelo towers on the island, this is the one nearest our house This is a view of the lake at the top of Cloughland Hill that we get our drinking water from, you can just see the buoy that holds the pipe of the bottom. On our way home we rode the northern coast road of the Beara Peninsula. There is a short cut road from Cork to Beara that can be difficult to navigate so I took some pictures of the junctions so that a friend could follow them, here's one of them well shortly after this photo, I was making good progress over a typical Irish road,(a bit bumpy) when I felt something hit my back, hmmm I thought, after about 1/2 mile I pulled better over only for Dave to say he thought he had seen something small and silver bounce of the road behind my bike, at the same time as he was saying that I realised that my camera was gone!!, well we both turned around and started looking. No sign of it from the road so I started looking in the long grass at the side of the road, I thought that even if the camera was dead I still could get the memory card out. After about 10 minutes looking I found it, split in two with the card door open, and no card. I couldn’t believe it. The bounce of the road must have ejected the card out of the camera. Well I kept on looking for about 30 minutes for the card but really I thought I had no chance. Yes you guessed it I found it. I can be lucky sometimes. I squeezed the broken case of the camera back together , popped the card back in and apart from a small dent and a button that’s a little stiff it worked. Here’s the grass verge I found the card in Just to finish this is a view from Adrigole,Thanks for looking Link to comment
