Last night, on our way to an island on Lough Ree, the engine stopped working on the boat behind me in the picture.
Nothing anyone did got it started.
As we floated out in the Loogh Ree, wondering what we were going to do, Marian suddenly got the engine started!
We didn’t move.
The propeller had fallen off.
After using an old door as an oar we’re currently stranded on the coast. We set up camp last night and lit a fire. Now, this morning, we have to work out how to get home.
