Walking in West Cork

With a summer like the one we had this year no wonder I haven’t posted a single photo…

At the start of September I went for a 3 days walk around from Skibbereen to Adrigole: the weather was with me, I couldn’t have been more blessed, and here is the proof.

Day one: from Aghadown do Bantry

Day 2 from Bantry to Glengarriff – via N71, back roads and a bit on the Beara Way

Day 3 spent in Glengarriff, visiting Gairinish Island and the woods. Day 4 Glengarriff to Adrigole

Farmhouse

Nice gateway – I like the stonework and the wooden sculptures:

Abandoned farmhouse; would be a great restauration project.

Life in the garden…

There is a hole in the wall of the pump house and blue tits have nested there.  It didn’t take long for Priscilla the cat to find out, so now she spends hours waiting for dinner…
