We took a little boat ride out to the island where in 500 b.c. monks lived. This island is about 8 miles off the coast of Ireland. It's not very big as you can tell with little vegetation. If you miss this island the next land sighting would be the USA. Yikes! There is another island near this one that is literally covered with birds. It is the second largest migration spot for these huge white birds. The white spots on the picture above are birds.
