On Thursday we packed lunches and headed out for a walk up Sky Road. It turned out to be a nice walk in the countryside, but not what we were expecting. We also learned that we've been spoiled by the shore walk here in Moville, where we can walk peacefully at the water's edge without dodging lunatics behind the wheels of cars and large trucks. The traffic along the Sky Road really made the experience less pleasant than it otherwise would have been--and we were there after tourist season. I can only imagine how bad it would be during the height of the season. In spite of the traffic, it was a good walk.
We passed many animals living near the edge.
There were a couple of castles around.
Anyway, they had less than 10 minutes to look and take whatever photos they wanted before the tour guide hustled them back into their van and drove them away. we stayed up there for a few more minutes and then started the 4 mile walk back to the apartment.
I seemed to notice the plants more on the way down.
