Recalling my best hiking and sketching memories of 2017
In June and July, I walked all of the Beara way (except Bere Island), wondering why I had not done it before since it is so close to home. I had hot days, wet days and everything in between, which is what one comes to expect in Ireland.
I particularly enjoyed Dursey Island, the many archaeological sites, and the friendly people in the colourful villages along the route. Perhaps the most spectacular section was coming out of Eyeries on a glistening morning and making my way around the coast before the long hike to Lauragh, passing the stone circles at Ardgroom and Cashelkeelty on the way.
Another very varied selections of drawings (and landscape). Some of it looks very challenging if scenic and you had all weathers.
Great stuff altogether!!
