Wexford Sights (XXVII)

I don't really have anything to add to the above photograph, which was taken in the forest on Oulart Hill recently. It's a place that I love for two reasons: firstly, there are spectacular views of the surrounding landscape, the light through the trees is often breathtakingly beautiful, and in the summer it's full of mushrooms; secondly, there's rarely anyone there, so I can let the hound off the lead to gallop about the place without having to worry about encountering other dogs or people (not because he's aggressive; more that he's wildly friendly, and believes the best way to introduce himself to other dogs is to hurl himself at them, which some people find disconcerting). 

Below is a picture taken just a few minutes ago, on the beach near my house. It's a bit blurry, even though it was taken with a tripod, but I like it all the same.

It's good to have somewhere to go that is beautiful around the year. It must be heaven for the hound too

It's full of exciting smells, the ground is good and soft for digging, and it's large enough for a hour's walking - yes, the hound loves it!
