While Malin Head was a place I have wanted to visit for a while, I don’t recall hearing about Gola Island. Yesterday, we drove to the ferry, took the 10-minute ride out to the island and while I was expecting a nice stroll, the scenery was incredible.

Here are some of the photos from the day:

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the beach. So while some in our group went swimming, I walked around and took some photos and then read (The Naked Anabaptist by Stuart Murray) a bit.

The island was beautiful, and a few in the group commented that this was the best beach they had ever visisted.

Game update: Only 1 game last night. We played Jamaica. Liz and I finished behind everyone.
