Friday 22 June 2012: Laharandota Lough
A much more relaxing day - bright and breezy, I accompanied himself to the market in Bantry and was in charge of purchasing olives and cheese - all very pleasant as you can taste before you buy. We lunched with our friend Trevor who lives in a very isolated spot half way up a mountain and makes a living by selling venus flytraps - online!
Excitingly the postcards are flying! More deliveries had to be made and I then carried on a little way to look at Laharandota lough. - a deep and mysterious lake nestling into the mountainside and now bedecked with lilies and bogbean.
Laharandota comes from Laharan meaning half a farm or townland and dota is doighte, burned on the surface. No evidence of that today. There are meant to be two holywells in the townland too, but I haven't managed to track them down yet.
