I've been meaning to write here for awhile and just haven't managed it because I knew I'd have to faff around and change the header and things like that. a squirrel doesn't really mean very much.
I love this picture and am very pleased to have taken it myself on my not particularly good and rather battered and elderly camera.
The picture was taken in April this year walking back to Sligo from Ross' Point on the west coast of Ireland.
I was very fortunate to be able to have 4 days in Sligo with some friends staying in a small room in the cellar of a Methodist chapel for free. the only costs were transport and food. The people I went to stay with (Ro, Nina and Lavinia) have been going for a few years and sleeping in the church and they asked if I'd like to join them. I travelled a few days after the others as I needed to be in Bradford. I went by train and ferry and foolishly travelled over night which was exhausting but did mean I saw the sunrise over Dublin port which was beautiful.
We were very blessed to have beautiful weather and and went for long walks and swam in the sea. the one day that wasn't so nice we spent looking in charity shops and sitting and reading and playing card games in a coffee shop.
all in all a very nice holiday
