Forty two years of growth.......

Forestry set  forty two years {I think} ago and now gone for the chop. We will miss the echo shouts and hidding between the trees. It was always a good place for our Easter egg hunt but now stands bare. Will we see the next growth ?????????????? Cloughane Caharn, aughatubrid.

Winter Solstice in Eightercua, Waterville

For the first time since we have been living here we went to see the sun go down on the shortest day in the year. The place to go to for sunset on Winter Solstice is Eightercua near Waterville. The ancient Stone row here leads towards the spot where the sun is setting, which I thought would be into the sea, but she rolled slowly down I think Hogshead, and a beautiful sight it was...
I feel spring coming already, the days will be getting longer anyway...
But before that A Happy Christmas to you all!!!
