Went for another walk this morning over the hills, tracks and boreens of our peninsula in the Southwest of Ireland: West Cork.
According to my mobile phone I did 12667 steps.
Today I decided I wasn't walking along the main roads and avoiding traffic. I met a few walkers harmed with all the right walking equipment and of course their "trusty" hiking sticks. I also met a man walking his dog along one of my favourite boreens. All of them said: "Hello".
I stopped at one point and took two photographs for my blog:
Another disappearing snow scene of the Northside and Bantry Bay and Beara Peninsula.
Hope you enjoyed my walk?
Had to look up boreen. What a lovely word, and a lovely walk. What sort of hiking stick do you use?ReplyDelete
Nice to see a snowy landscape. Isn't it hard to walk on?ReplyDelete
Hi the Veg Artist. Yes it is a lovely word. A rural single lane with grass growing up the middle. It's a telescopic hiking stick with a leather loop. It's good for going up hills and stopped me from slipping and falling many a time.ReplyDelete
Did you watch Darcey Bussel's Wild Coasts Of Scotland on More 4 the other night? The scenery reminded me of here. I love Darcey. She dances like an Elf and her personality is lovely. Thanks.
No, I missed this. So many lovely programmes on at the moment.Delete
It's a series. Very inspiring. There are some wonderful new programmes.Delete
Hi LA. It was strange seeing my footprints again in the snow and a few animal footprints. I didn't slip once in the melting sleet snow. I wouldn't go walking without my stick though. Hope you're all OK on Poros?ReplyDelete
I liked 'boreens' as well.ReplyDelete
It's a cool word isn't it Debby? I read somewhere that Bo is Irish fo a cow and reen means lane: Boreen. Brian Boru introduced a cow tax: Bo for cow and ru for tax. It's an education when you pop over here!😊ReplyDelete
Now these steps you did...Was it the foxtrot or the rumba you were doing? Nice wintry pictures with Hungry Hill waiting for you.ReplyDelete
Just the usual swing from side to side they count YP. It felt strange seeing my footprints in the snow today. Uncannily I was walking the same footsteps. You can see how Hungry Hill got it's name. Thanks.ReplyDelete
I feel cold just looking at those photos! It was showing minus 4 here on our garden thermometer when we got up this morning, but it soon soared to zero later on.ReplyDelete
Hi JayCee. There was a wind chill but I was wearing a neck scarf that covers most of my face. It's like a mask and only cost 2 Euros from Geek. I think gloves, woolly hat and a good fleece help too. It was a nice morning and it was good to see other people walking.ReplyDelete
