... the horse was going to be even harder. After a couple of attempts the young guides just went and got me a chair. Embarrassing?? Maybe, but it was easier than the alternative! We had a nice ride through fields, along beaches and beside roads. It was a bit reminiscent of a horse ride I took many years ago at Rockwood Park. Liz, you'd remember that day, I'm sure! Anyway, it was a nice ride, and a good day. You know you're out of shape, though, ...

This has been made possible by three enormous tunnels, one 4km long, one 7km, and one 3.5 km, which cut through the big headlands. The longest one is fairly conventional, if rather Stygian; the two shorter ones are nothing short of terrifying as you enter through quite a smart concrete portal, which almost immediately becomes a sort of rounded, organic, ...
