Crouching, I squeeze through a low opening between the bracken and brambles in an old field wall and drop down into a low, stone-lined chamber….
On the old green road to KIlcrohane, cloud caps the summits of Roskerrig, Seefin and Peekeen with fingers of haze feeling their way down their slopes, the cloud-base occasionally lifting to revel patches of blue.
Time flies. It has been a long time since I posted anything here.
As the years go by, as creaky joints creak more and as other age-related issues intervene, I can only manage shorter walks and find myself unable to take on the long hikes that I could when I started this site.
My sketching has tended to dry up too. It was closely associated with my hiking so I have been struggling to find the motivation to keep at it. I hope to remedy that, perhaps not as regularly as before and perhaps departing from previous subject matter too.
Four sketches from recent walks and explorations.
