In Which We Travel 80km and End Up In The Same Place

5 06 2013

Today was another loop ride, a chance to travel without the heavy pannier bags, a chance to explore while knowing exactly where we were going to be at the end of the day.

We were given the suggestion of three loops we could do, one, two or all three of them.  We started with the first one and head to Ballyconneely–I really like the name! Because we’re feeling no time pressure, we play with the phone/camera timer option and take a picture of the two of us. I’ll post the one that worked the best and leave out the many that did not!

Cameras and timers!

The day was gorgeous and sunny, it was worthwhile to back track a few kms and spend some time at the local beach near Roundstone. The sand seemed much softer here than at Lake Huron beaches, it was a joy to walk on, but the water was cold–ankle deep was good enough for me! I did think of some of my beach loving friends, you’d love this place.

A gorgeous beach...

…and a Berner puppy to play with!

After finishing the first loop, we tackled a second one. This part took us into some of the most desolate parts of the country we’ve seen so far. Houses were far apart and totally exposed to the ocean. Because of the harsh conditions there are no trees, no flowers beside homes. Only rocks, hills and sheep. And very few road signs!

An hour after we returned the weather changed. The glorious sunshine left and it’s been raining on and off ever since.
