When we grew up in the Great Lakes, we had "no-seeums," tiny insect pests that would nibble at any exposed skin. In Ireland, they are called midges. We hiked across Blasket Island on the windward side. Then we switchbacked (you can see it in this photo) and headed back to the boat landing on the leeward side. Big mistake! Shielded from the wind, the midges were thick in the air ... and very hungry.
