Loop Walk from Cooncrome Harbour

Like Dave we used the bright and chilly day to walk the dogs. We choose a loop walk, commencing at Coonccrome Harbour, Over the Water, about 10 min drive from Caherciveen. The walk leads from the pier through coastal bog areas and woodland with excellent views of Dingle Bay, Valentia Harbour, Knocknadobar and surrounding Hills. Small streams and puddles display a plenty of animals and vegetation.
It was a good opportunity to try out a newly bought 14-54 mm Zuiko Digital glass on my Olympus E520.
