Better not, that's virgin on the loquacious, but don't ask me which is which! Wink

Sorry to say, but Nick won't be coming this time. I did try to persuade him, but apparently he has a prior engagement (work). So, by the time he does get over he'll be Auld Nick Tongue

OK peeps, listen up...I'll not be putting this on Booktubeface-r or any of that Tongue I've checked with maeve and the second house is definitely not available this year. That means there's just Maeve's house (the detached one nearest the pub) for nine people. Shouldn't be a problem as long as people don't mind a bit of squeezing in, and bring along a couple of airbeds etc. Of course anyone who doesn't want to join the squeeze there's a B+B just up the road.

Good news about the cave - they're hapy to give us a private tour after hours (six ish) on Saturday or Sunday. They have a fewe stipulations about what kind of lights we'd be using being as it's a fragile ecosystem etc. Could someone who knows more about that kind of thing let me know what would be envisaged. I'm presuming it's just a few torches and flashlights. She mentioned preferring LED lights. I think it's mainly about things not generating heat and there shouldn't be much of a problem but I told her I'd ask someone more in the know and get back to her in a couple of days with a more definitive answer. So, any thoughts on that??

By the way I also mentioned that we'd be amenable to letting them have one or two (if any) decent shots for their own marketing..though that would be up to individuals of course

So it looks like we're down to the old faithfuls...

If anyone else is interested at the last minute, please let us know - a bit of fresh blood would be nice to try some bizarre initiation rituals on Wink - but seriously the more the merrier and Doolin is packed with accommodation

So, let me know about the cave please, and the countdown has started...six sleeps to go.

Go on, go on,

you will you will

Are we there yet?

Great! Can't wait!Grin

If heat is the problem, shouldn't we go in one by one... well wrapped

Or the more verbose should be gagged praps... {looks at Katy} Wink

Seriously, I wonder if it's more the light energy output, which is what some of these stately homes are worried about. Too much light fades the curtains sort of thing, in which case flashguns would prolly be out... but I'll bring some anyway, and a few light stands. I've also got a few LED lights - one is fairly powerful too.
