Midge's

I am sitting in the doorway of a friends house in Achill (its raining) ,looking over at Seal Cave campsite,and thinking how are the campers handling the Midges,
because they are even getting to me so much so that I think that this will be the last time.
Achill to me is midges ,rain sheep shie and because of this washing off the roads into the sea, the beached are regularly closed because of E.coli.
And the powers that bee don't seem to get it.
Closed beaches = no tourists.
How do you handle the little black b******s.

People who hike through the scottish highlands and glens swear by Avon antiperspirant for men. It dont smell too grand but the good thing is midges hate it.
