A walk along the Sheep's Head peninsula

|towards the tip of the peninsula the ocean right in front of us|

|I am fascinated by rock pools|
A visit to the gardens at Garnish Island
|the pond in the Italianate garden showed off these water lilies|
|the gardens at Garnish Island are beautiful, these unplanned ferns caught my eye|
|and the view from the gardens are spectacular|

And the bay is a favourite place for seals, too:
|I never was this close to a seal before|
There were many more activities this week, from a chamber orchestra concert, picnics, walks both in evening sunshine and a very misty morning (hear the sea crashing on the rocks below, but not able to see it), to visiting a local market, eating ice cream, playing card games...
All in all a break to remember, and aren't those the best?!
