Sometimes I forget that I have THIS on the doorstep.
However every so often I take myself off up the Wicklow mountains and am reminded of the glory of nature, and each time I tell myself that I really should do this more often.
And then inevitably I come home and forget all about it.
This particular walk took us from Lough Tay (the Guinness lake) to Lough Dan.
It's a spectacular start, and then a beautiful countryside walk through hills and fields for about an hour, until you reach the silent and beautiful lake.
Once there it's time for a pause for reflection before heading back along your tracks to the car.
A well-earned pub lunch naturally follows, and then home for Sunday papers by the fire.
Pretty hard to beat it in fairness.
I really should do this more often...
