Exploring with the Wild Westies

Wild WestI had a lovely morning tagging along with Michael, Leo and the Wild West Irish tour group.  We went exploring parts of Sligo I’d never seen before, it was really interesting.

SealAs we arrived at our first location one of the locals came to welcome us! I was delighted, it’s not often I’ve seen a seal so close to the shore.

Splash!I can’t believe how blue the sea was, you’d never think we were in Ireland.

Sligo rocksAfter our walk around the beach and the rocks we headed to a field but not just any old field.

MooThere were cows but not just cows, they shared their field with a portal tomb.

Portal tombThe tomb is overlooked by both Knocknarea and Benbulben mountains.  It’s a really scenic place, very nice for the cows to be looking at these views every day.

Leo and the tombSolitudeMy thanks to Wild West Irish Tours for inviting me to tag along.  The rest of my photos from the day are here.
