    1. Thank you for your kind words Cathy :o) It is beautifully serene at this time of year and we love walking here. If you are thinking of coming at this time you will need to bring some ‘spikies’ for your footwear as it is very icy on the paths. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend! Much love to you all xxx

  1. Very beautiful spot. I wonder if you know this spot from before or just stumbled upon or just planned to go there. A silent poet probably hears everything but only decides to turn down noises.

    1. Thank you for your kind words Rommel :o) We stumbled across this spot for the first time around six years ago when Seamus and Ruby were still alive and it will always be a special place for us. It is so lovely we can now create new memories here with Eivor and Pearl.
