Shannon Estuary - Ardnacrusha to Loop Head - Aug 2008
06 November 2008



The HBA Shannon Estuary Trip in the summer (!) of 2008 was most enjoyable. The weather was forecast and proved to be interesting.

As usual on HBA trips we went with friends and made more friends along the way. Special thanks to members of the Foynes Yacht Club for their hospitality - see their new site at Foynes Yacht Club

There were close to 1000 photographs taken by everyone on this trip, here are just a few.
