Swarms of Barn Swallows (Rauchschwalben) are hunting in the calm bay. Eunice comes along and invites us to a drink later on board 4B. We visit Eunice, Cliff and their sons for an hour and have a nice talk.

We decide to head for Mountshannon. Coming closer there we see a boat of ESL grounded at Bushy Island. They tell us later that they wanted to anchor there. After emptying the water tank they get free with the help of their dinghy.
