Fantastic Irish Scenery

After a great Irish Breakfast and what seemed like gallons of tea we said farewell to the lovely Mary and we set off at 9am heading for our next base at Glengariff travelling along the mighty Wild Atlantic Way and it is also the first time we have encountered rain!!! West the GPS for Carriglare as a starting point for the WAW and saw nothing that took our fancy and after a quick survey set off for Kinsale and the views/scenery became more dramatic and very appealing to the eye We took a photo shoot at Old Head and that is a cliff bound Island and supposed to be the worlds remotest Golf Course,a wee bit windy and a shower of rain did,t spoil the moment of sheer joy at the spectacle we were witnessing.Next up Skibbereen and it was avery busy,busy little village and we struggled to find a parking spot cos both of us need a pee tout suite!! We found one and the toilet was a bloody pay as you go !!!  25c NO change given,so bugga it we both squashed into the cubicle and we became very quickly relieved !!

We passed thru (and took pics of the breath taking scenery) at a lovely spot called SCHULL (pronounced Skull!) and a visit to Alter Rock and its historic value onto the highlight of the day MIZEN BRIDGE,very beautiful spot and the bridge connecting the two rocky tors is spectacular.It was a long steep walk to the bridge and I managed to cross it completely,Annie gave up hal way across,the way UP to the top of the very rocky  mountainous area was via very steep steps which I am happy to say “I Conquered!” We spent quite a lot of time there and arrived at our overnight base in Glengarriff at around 4pm and sadly not like the previous overnighters with NOT a hint of a cup of tea (non in the room either) We had a meal in Caseys (what else) Pub and I had a Guiness (my first since I was 15 ! haven’t touched it since then because I had avery bad reaction,but,after all I AM in Ireland and it actually tasted OK) then moved on a dark Irish beer also very nice.The night is starting to get cool now and I suspect the sea breeze coming in from the Atlantic is the culprit.Tomorrow we are needing to be alert as we are told breakfast is served between 8.30 am & 9am !!
