There was no art class yesterday so I had a rare day of nothing to do. I decided to go off exploring. First I walked up Knocknarea which is a mountain near Strandhill in Sligo. It was a very misty morning but it added to the atmosphere.
After the mountain walk I headed to Strandhill where the weather looked completely different even though it’s only five minutes down the road! I was quite cold so what could be nicer than a visit to Voya for a seaweed bath.
After the bath I decided to head off exploring again. I’d always wanted to go to Killaspubrone Church. It’s rumoured that St. Patrick visited here…so if it’s good enough for him, it’s good enough for me 🙂
It was so peaceful walking around the church. I would have spent longer but my stomach started rumbling so it was time to head to Shells Cafe. To get to and from the church you have to walk across the end of the Sligo Airport runway. Although there aren’t many flights leaving from there now I timed it just right to get the shot above. This is Usher Aviation Flight Academy they teach people how to fly…how cool would that be!
So that was my perfect day 🙂 Hopefully I’ll be able to do it all again soon. The rest of the photos are here.
