Day 175 – Anchor Beach…

Near Cleggan, in Connemara, Ireland, this beautiful beach takes its name from an ancient anchor buried in the sand… It is believed to be from the 1000 ton 3 mast barque ‘Verity’, from Nova Scotia, that was wrecked in a storm in 1890.

Day 173 – Don’t Jump…!

These are the Cliffs of Moher, and pretty impressive too…. It’s a great sight, but incredibly busy, with thousands visiting every day. The central area has marked paths, and the cliff edges are fenced off, but further round, it is much more open, and we saw people perilously close to the edge!

Day 166 – Duck or Grouse…

I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!

Day 165 – Open Gate…

Sometimes when I see an open gate I wonder where it leads to, and what it is intended to keep in (or out). This gate however is directly in front of our house, and leads into the farmer’s fields. It’s normally left closed to discourage casual walkers, but has been left open by a neighbour taking their dog for a walk…
