The last few days have been very busy. I met a friend in Baile na nGall on Thursday and went for a lovely 10km walk around the townland. That was followed by a long chat, coffee and two slices of luxury iced Christmas cake (from Lidl), it was the first slice of cake I had this Christmas. And the first long chat with a friend.
Imeall an Domhain, Baile na nGall
Friday I met the “Friday” walking group at Dun an Or and walked back along the entire length of Smerwick Bay to Feoghanagh Pier. Another 10km. We got plenty of sunshine and sea spray walking along Sli Imeall an Domhain, the cliff walk from TP’s along the edge of the cliffs.
Fine views back over the Cloghane side of the peninsula
Saturday I went out on my own and climbed Caharconree, had my first visit to Sammy’s on Inch beach since Christmas Day and waited to see the magnificent sunset on the strand.

One for my “dead” collection. This one is very weird though, it’s a skin, very clean, looks like it may have been dropped here or blown by the wind.
View from Meelin Hill part of one of the Annascaul Loop Walks, all the details are provided on Information Boards in the village.
A great little ridge walk, three summits, great views even if the sky was grey.
The three peaks of Brackloon
Minard beach just enough sand to be able to walk in.
Minard Castle, the air temp was 2c this morning, the swim was most welcome.
