Unfortunately, the beautiful sunny warm weather is gone and the rain and cold is back. Typical Irish weather. But no better way to spend the last of the nice weather, than in the sand.
I say sand, because this is not actually a beach. It’s technically a harbour and I won’t recommend going in the water. Its gross and it’ll most likely make you sick.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t stop people enjoying the sand.
The view alone is worth coming here for. You can see the whole way to the other side of the harbour, on days like this.
Suppose we should be happy the rain is back. We had 2 weeks of lovely weather and none of the mountains caught fire (usually they do, after a week of warm weather and no rain). Another few days of sun shine and heat, probably would have caused fires, so we’re very lucky the rain is back.
The sun is out, the temperature is nice and it’s not raining. Perfect wandering weather and no better place to wander, then a forest on the side of a mountain.
I truly missed this, when I lived on the north coast. It was so flat there and all you could see was wind turbines in the distance. The scenery was nothing like this.
Going off the trail for a bit can be rough,
especially when everything’s slightly over grown.
But when you find something as random as this, in the middle of the forest, it’s all worth it.
Beautiful bluebells everywhere. Too bad you’re not allowed to pick them. They smelled so lovely.
All that walking and climbing is well worth it, when you can experience a view like this.
