I am sure you will enjoy this recent Blog Post.
I visited Old Head, Co. Mayo twice during the past week.
Last Sunday for Bards In The Woods
and last Wednesday Claire treated me to a picnic adventure
for a birthday treat ... and the weather was superb !!!
We also went on a local Holy Well Hunt around there,
but that's for another blog.
For one or two future retreats I would like to recommend 3 nights around here.
So this time I visited twice in a week. Through the second visit tide was almost fully out, and this is what it was like. Even the lifeboat was grounded
and then it was picnic time
A later blog will reveal those
but for now click to read the full blog and pics of this adventure
Thank you again for wading through this lot.
More news to reveal next week
Claire and I truly appreciate your continued support
We look forward to meeting up with you when we can
