GORMANSTON 2017 – Part 3

I got up early, about 7am , and headed for the ablutions. When I went to take a shower I met Eleanor Attridge who claimed that they were the ladies’ showers and there was a sign saying so. I checked the sign and it looked like man to me!  So I had a shower while Eleanor and another lady were using other cubicles – no problem.

I went for a walk, taking a quarter of an hour to get to the motorway bridge. I waved to a bus driver on the motorway and got a thumb up in reply.

Then, when I got back, it was time for breakfast. I was hoping for a Full Irish such as they used to serve up in the good ol’ days before so many changes happened, but no such luck.  I had porage to which I added meusli and yoghourt. Also I had a couple of slices of toast, one with marmalade and one with honey. I think it was the first time I’d eaten porage since last year.

Then it was time for the first lecture. I was intending to go to Jim Ryan’s microscopy workshop but he said it was for beginners with no experience at all.  He autographed my copy of his book and told me that I’m mentioned in it. FAME!!!!

  1. Eleanor says:

    Somebody mixed up the shower signs the directions from our end were directly to that shower room , they were changed later in the week. Looks like I wasn’t the only that got caught with the signs

  2. The signs were bizarre! Did you notice the ‘one way’ sign down the corridor with the traders or the ‘mind the step’ at the exit from the rotunda to the assembly room where there wasn’t a step but a slope?
