I have been getting myself fit lately walking the hills, boreens and bogs around the Sheeps Head Peninsula in Ireland where I live. The walking is doing my back and my general fitness the world of good. My poor feet have been suffering though, any one for blisters?
The one thing about the hiking is that I have started to fall in love with Ireland again. She really is the most beautiful island and you realize it's us humans who do the damage not nature. Here's a few photographs from my latest walking adventures:
|Dunmanus Bay in the distance. Managed to capture my rucksack on this snap.|
|Another picture of Dunmanus Bay. I had climbed a few hundred feet for this next picture.|
|A concrete trig point. These are very helpful for hiker's who can use a compass and a map.|
|One of the many hundreds of oak yellow painted markers on the Sheeps Head Way.|
|Another oak finger-post.|

Have you fell in love with the place you live again?
Here's a song about walking. It's always playing in my mental juke box.
