Looks like - but you still have to work on the size of the portions

I saw a sign that I pointed out to Jurgen, I then had to embarrassingly explain why an englishman would find such a sign so funny...

Back to the bird poo...

Jurgen went to get the boat and I had to get the guy to switch the fuel pump on

I have no idea what this bird is, but Jurgen was right, there was lots of bird poo in Bangor... And I still can't remember where I slept

Another beautiful day in the making, that was going to turn out to be quite special.

Fair enough. The plate is a giveaway - patently a poncey city brekkie posing as the Real Thing. Visitors often confuse a F.I.B. with a F.E.B. - an honest mistake as they're both fried. Paul Glatzel is an Authority (shame on you Dingle). I'm biased and prefer the F.U.B. (Full Ulster Breakfast) which is weighted more towards the baking arts, albeit fried. At the other end of the spectrum is Munster - where the pig gets the leading role. I had a VERY VERY good fry the morning after donegaldan's leaving party - that eaten in Annagry at the CaisleŠin ”ir.

IMO, a really good Irish breakfast should contain a decent black pudding (although I won't lip one) and also white pudding (which is mostly cardboard and sawdust). I'd like to think it would have two nicely fried eggs, well met by two nicely crisped rashers. They should be in the company of two very classy pork sausages. And here's where it gets contentious - an Ulster Fry will contain Potato Bread - it's a pivotal component, a Have/No-Have. Where a REALLY good F.U.B. emerges, there will be Soda Bread/Farls too. These are what you mop up the eggs with. My Granny, who was an Ulsterwoman of Scottish extraction*, insisted on adding a panfried Scotch Pancake as well. I have to say it worked, but I've never seen it done again - I reckon she was just using up leftovers. The fried Tomato was always a feature but Mushrooms are now making an appearance - nice but not essential. The above MUST be served with toast and wheaten bread, accompanied by a bottomless pot of tea. I insist on REAL coffee because I'm odd. Only a Philistine would call for baked beans....


* Thankfully, they were able to extract MOST of it.

It was also the breads that made the difference.

The quality of the food for both the Irish and the Scottish Breakfasts were much better than any English Breakfast we experienced

Ok, so we all meet up at the slipway near Redbay...

All the works are done on Finn and the boys must have got up early for that

I was invited back to Redbay by the director but we just couldn't go so much more to do

I was gutted but I did give him a big old hand shake and said say hi to our Willk

Ok, so we're now off to Scotland
