Up the Hill Instead

There are two cruise ships docked at the pier today, so we knew town would be crowded. The population is only around 1100 people, so when one ship docks, that can easily double or more, if it's a large ship. With two, there are even more people. Granted, not all of them stay in town--they can go on a tour of the surrounding areas if they want. Many people choose to stay in town and walk around, especially on a day like today. We decided that when we picked up our wee walking pal, we'd avoid town and head up the hill instead. It was a pleasant walk.

I always enjoy watching how the light hits the hills and how it changes

lots of sky
i love the shape of the leaves

finn knew the horses were there before we saw them

we were on the far side of the water a week and a half ago
on the way back, i noticed the ships in a gap between the house and hedge, so zoomed in
I guess they'll be leaving at 5 or 6 this evening, so tomorrow we will probably do our usual loop through town, around the outskirts, and back again. Weekend after next there will be one staying overnight.

Right now, I'm sitting here drinking tea and listening to the birds singing. It's very peaceful. I hope it's the same today in your neck of the woods.

Your area is so beautiful. I've always wanted to take a trip to Ireland because that's where my mom's family is from.
