It’s been a wonderful few days for my sheep obsession. First I took the Great Western Greenway, what we would call a Rail Trail in the U.S., from Westport to Achill Island.
Then I settled in at the Pure Magic Lodge.
And today I tackled a super steep climb to take in Keem Bay.
I particularly like this guy who simply does not give one flying fuck about anything.
And these two lovebirds casually balanced on the edge of a 600′ cliff with a sheer drop straight into the ocean like it ain’t no thang.
I got lucky and stayed dry but a storm was brewing offshore the whole time. Here’s the view at Keel Beach in town.
