Whilst waiting for the ferry to the Great Blasket Islands I talked to the ferry ticket office lady.
We talked about the Atlantic storms in Winter and how the Blasket Island ferry stops running in September. I said if I ever built an house again it would have it's own basement and we wouldn't even know the storms were present. Instead we build houses for the view overlooking the bays. We both agreed.
I told her that I have read three books about the island and in particular I liked the Loneliest Boy In The World. His only friends were Seagulls. The lady told me that I would see lots of Seagulls on the ferry journey and on the island. I think she thought I liked Seagulls and was perhaps an Anorak ? Talking of Anoraks. We met Waterloo Man at Croperdy. Stay tuned. Why do I keep spelling Cropredy Croperdy?
I visited the Blasket Island Centre the next day on the mainland and saw the picture of the book.
