Friday 1st May: We arose to another of Eleanor’s fine breakfasts of Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Tea and Toast, and resolved to do a bit of walking, pre-gig.
Mark drove us to a most spectacular local beauty spot – Kinbane, on the north coast of Antrim.
We were unable to walk right out to the headland as to do so you have to navigate your way through an old ruined Castle, and there had been a fire the previous week. It was all cordoned off. Nevertheless we had a great walk in the sunshine, marred only by Mike having to endure a ‘phone call from his accountant! On the way home we stopped in Ballycastle for Icecream.
Later, the Malinky-mobile was packed and the crew headed for Omagh for our final gig of the tour.
Only one small mishap on the way – the GPS took us to Market Square Newtown Stewart, instead of Market Square Omagh, luckily this was only ten miles off our intended target.
The Strule Arts Centre is a beautiful new theatre, only two years old and was a fine venue for our last gig of the tour.
We’re all looking forward to Denmark next week!
