I spent Sunday Hill-walking in spectacular West Cork

Beautiful day on the hills near Bantry Bay.

Beautiful day on the hills near Bantry Bay.

Today I went on a 5 hour hike in West Cork with the Hillwalking Club, there were 60 of us and we went to a particularly scenic part of the county, Sheep’s Head, which is a peninsula close to Bantry Bay, and when one is up on the top of the hills, one can see the sea on both sides – today was a very calm, cool day (about 3 or 4 degrees).   We were well prepared for the cold, wearing lots of layers,  though once we got going on the hills, the layers soon came off, until we sat down for lunch at the summit of Seefin (400 metres above sea level).   It was fairly muddy and wet underfoot, and there was a bit of slipping and sliding, and we all came home with very muddy boots, and very muddy trousers!  What a great day to be able to go out and appreciate nature and wonderful scenery.
