The lakes in Killarney national park.
In my last post I showed you a photo from our recent hiking trip to the Burren, Co. Clare. We made it to the top of the rock. It was a difficult hike for me. I’m used to forest routes, not rocky ones.
It was worth the trek though to see this and to enjoy a wind-swept lunch at the top.
Today is a pretty murky day here and it reminded me of a pretty murky day we had driving through the south island of New Zealand. Even through the drizzle the trees looked so pretty.
On the road somewhere between Christchurch and Wanaka.
Winter is here. It’s cold, but lovely and sunny. Some places have had the first snow already. Luckily here in Cork we don’t get a whole lot of snow because I really can’t handle driving in it!
It was winter when we visited New Zealand, so there was plenty of snow around. We had lessons in putting on snow chains, but we didn’t have to use them-I was too chicken to drive in the mountains! I did like looking at them and taking photos though!
Te Anau, sunset.
A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo from the Ring of Kerry which was taken coming into Killarney from Kenmare. As you continue along that road, you end up here at Muckross Lake.
I have seen many lovely sunsets here, but I thought I’d go with a day-time view today!
