It’s mid-week, so here’s another one for my Sketchbook Project….
Getting a coffee fix… I know that this piece is quite different from the previous few. Are things going astray? I’ll keep drawing and see what I end up with.
Now onto another totally unrelated topic…
The Gap of Dunloe in Killarney, Ireland is a popular tourist destination. When we were in Ireland in 2009, my husband and I decided to cover the area by bicycle.
Before the ride, we load our bikes onto a boat which took us across 3 lakes.
It was very peaceful.
Except when our boat got stuck, and a couple of men were asked to get off to give it a push away from the bank
I’ve taken a lot of photos along the way, but just a few here…
When we arrived at the other end of the 3 lakes, we were surrounded by mountains.
The route was hilly (500 feet elevation), and it was one of the most difficult bike rides I’ve experienced. There was a lot of huffing and puffing! (Of course, if cycling is not your thing, other options are walking or getting on horse drawn carts).
When we hired the bikes, I didn't think about how difficult it might be. That was a good thing, because although it was difficult, it turned out to be one of my most memorable experiences.
The vast open area and the view were just magnificent. And we met a some furry friends.
Here’s another view of the green rocky landscape.
Hope you enjoyed the trip.
