... to the Loop Head peninsula where we were almost the only visitors exploring the area. Amazing seaside cliffs, crashing waves, peaceful farms and an imposing lighthouse right on the end of the peninsula was a treat for all the senses. On a walking section we were able to get close to the Bridges of Ross. Only one of the original natural stone bridges remain after centuries of ocean erosion.

We're off to Londonderry to walk the city wall tomorrow.
Cheers for now,
