      ... giving us a fantastic view of the valley, Kylemore Abbey and it's gardens. Thankfully the way down was easier. Totally beautiful, the whole hillside covered in heather. In total we were on our feet for 3 hours. We had a light lunch and then drove off to Cong Abbey in Cong. I had read about the Abbey in the novel The Dark Witch by Nora Roberts.

      ... till 10 every evening, and with a cashpoint-proper bank one-inside. There are several places to stay and a few to eat and drink. I picked up lunch in the shop and then used their picnic benches outside to assemble and demolish it in more sunshine. It has been cloudy but with the sun warming through the clouds most of the day, and occasionally you find yourself with a bowl of blue sky up above.
