OH hell, now I'm very jealous. It is fantastic around there. Takes me back two and half decades and makes me yearn for the chance to just walk and just see what comes up. The simple pilgrim's life. The unexpected. What could be better? When I think of everything you have to come, I am as green as a postbox, with envy. Hope you get nice weather….
Hi John, it's been quite a revelation for us after all the established trails that we've done. It goes against my nature not to have things planned out in advance, but it's all come good so far – and people have been really friendly and helpful too. Like the old guy who parked on a blind bend of a busy road to educate us about Irish runes … definitely unexpected!
Nice photos, great day for a walk
Thanks Grey Wolf! There's something really special about a day of good weather here, we take loads of photos as the next day it will probably rain. And it did.
Are Irish limestone pavements better than Yorkshire ones? They look amazing in your pictures. Mum.
Mum, I cannot possibly answer that one without getting into trouble with someone! I've seen more little plants in the grikes of Yorkshire pavements, but we might just be too early here. But I did love the combination of limestone pavements and the sea in the Burren.
Absolutely stunning! Can't help feeling I'm getting the better end of the deal – vicariously enjoying the scenery without getting the sore feet. xx
You have a point Roz – but we get the pints of Irish craft ale in front of an open fire after a hard day's walk. Well, we did yesterday, the day before that it was a pint of very cold Guinness in a chilly pub that reeked of Jeyes Fluid, but that's another story!
The Burren photos bring back memories. Glad things are going well. What was dinny up to
Hi Andy, I'll have to ask Neil to update you on that – I was scurrying along behind taking photos, trying to catch up with them – walking way too fast for me. Dinny was just over for a short break which seemed to involve tennis, sailing and hurling amongst other things!
