Night Owl,

When I was in La Push, the idea of a flush tolet was new and expermental. Most people had the little house out back.

So no portapottys, There were some bushes, but don't use the thistle, or you might get a sting, where you don't want one.

On the boat, we had a 5 gal, bucket, and a seat. Use bucket, dump over the side. Sounds gross, but nobody ever got sick or anything. The river (Quiliute river.) had enough flow to flush out the small boat harbor. I think what sewer there was in the village, just dumped into the river too. At tops there might have been 400 people there, including tourists, fishermen and loggers.

For a point of referance, La Push is only about 30 miles north of the Ho river, and the rain forest. (80 inches /yr) This is where you see the pictures of all the moss growing on the trees. If it dosn't rain there for about three days, the fire danger goes off the board. All that moss dries out and becomes great tinder.

Alison:

The people in the part of Ireland where I stayed for a few days (Warrenpoint, County Down) say that if you can see Finn MacCool on the top of Slieve Foy, it's not raining, it you can't see it, it is raining. During the two weeks I was there, I saw it only on the last day, just before driving to Belfast to catch a plane home.

All the time I was there, people kept telling me how lovely it was during the three weeks immediately before my arrival I've since heard from folks over there that the weather has been beautiful since I left. Maybe I'm a bad omen or something.

Keep the faith.

Mike:

Lucky beggar. I drove around the Ards Peninsula about three weeks ago, including Portaferry. Beautiful country, even during a torrential rainstorm such as I experienced the day I was there. No surprise though, it rained every day of the two weeks I was there. One must adapt the attitude that if you get sunshine on any day, that's a bonus.

I don't know about pubs in Portaferry, but just a short distance north, on the Lough side is a little village called Kircubbin, where you'll find Finnegan's pub. In spite of the hoky name, it's a nice place, and the food was great.

Enjoy.

alison, Sounds like a typical summer day at La Push, Wa. I spent most of my summers while in HS, there working on the fishing boats.

Wind, rain, fog, cold, late June, ahhh, sounds like home.

I never knew there was a town or anything else called Portaferry. In the U.S. we have Portapottys all over most festival sites, but what's a Portaferry?

Wish I was Mike..... do me a favour... have some scampi in the Lobster Pot for me.....

We had one of our breakfast programs broadcast from home a while back and the presenter stood on the lough shore at Portaferry and said "It is a beautiful sunny Spring morning here in Northern Ireland." funny thing was she was in an ankle length winter coat, scarf, hat, and gloves and her lips were still turning blue.......
