Day 113, Friday 21 April
What’s the best way to spend a scheduled catch-up/rest day when you’re on schedule and the sun is still shining? Easy. Cycle the short distance from Valentia Island to Kells Beach, where Eileen and Mick have kindly offered the use of one of their Beach Pods. Come on, all you glampers.

This place is perfect. Next to a beautiful beach with views across the water from the Ring of Kerry to the Dingle peninsula in a solid, stormproof, insulated ‘tent’ with real beds and 13 amp sockets, an immaculate kitchen/dining/shower/wc building about 25 paces away, run by the salt-of-the-Kerry-earth hosts, Eileen and Mick (who explained his Valentia/Kells-Lowestoft link via the band Darkness). Thank you both, for your kind hospitality and RNLI support, great company, plus sharing your very tasty Thai takeaway from just up the road, courtesy of Billy at Kells Bay House, another good RNLI supporter.
