1st June: Skibbereen Saturday Market; Schull; Brown Envelope Seeds Open Day.
A full day for Lisi and I began at Skibbereen Saturday Market, an excellent open air tented bazaar at which a good number of local crafts people and small, generally specialist food enterprises, join with traders of bric-a-brac and garden plants to provide a rewarding morning entertainment.
After an hour or so at the market we drove on to Schull which we found busy with Bank Holiday visitors and Schull Triathalon competitors and their supporters.
After a snack lunch in Balydehob we visited 'Brown Envelope Seeds' on their remote Ardagh farm where they were holding an 'Open Afternoon' and where I enjoyed their complimentary tea and delicious fresh strawberry and cream tarts.
