Geoffs Life After Work !

Life is just beginning

Galway to Ballina via Wild Atlantic Way

It rained again BUT did not deter us from our pilgrimage arounf the Wild Atlantic Way,once again scenery was breath taking and we decided to cut across the Conammarra Mountains through exciting Gorges,lots of abandoned houses and one paricular house we almost called on because we thought it was on fire causing LOTS of smoke was actuallt the house owner lighting an indoor fire fire ! (peat? coal?) Travelled thru Mayo and Waterfalls,stream,rivers and ambling brooks were  working overtime and I could spend hours simply staring at these small world wonders BUT we are limited for time and have to move on.Tomorrow will be our last look at the coast as we will then head back to Dublin with an overnight stay in Carrick on Shannon.Next we will try the local country pub Mist rolling down the Mountains reminded me of an horror TV show I watched in the 50,s called The Trollenberg Terror.At times it was difficult reading road signs as they are in Gaelic! Sheep wander aimlessly onto roads,but,unlike Australia where road kill is rampant ALL Irish road wandering animals were seemingly safe on the roads !

Great Irish Music played in the local pub (Muddy Burns)and Annie had a huge dinner considting of 3 chickens!!  The music is infectious and foot tapping tomorrow will start our journey back to Dublin then on to UK
