Tuesday 2nd August 2011…an exploring day!!!

I couldn’t get Internet yesterday so this is a report of Tuesday’s fun!!!

Will post again tonight….cheers Les

Yet again another great spot for the night and so nice to wake up to seeing the ocean!!!

Today was going to be an exploring day on my drive back towards the centre of the Island…..I took all the back roads and see for yourself if it was worth it!!!

aug2222222222222 001One of the tour books I have tells me that these working horses, look how strong he is, uses a plough to dredge up Irish peat moss from the ocean which is then used for fertilizer and other foods.  Didn’t find any of them working but there are lots of horses in the fields.

I cannot stand it when you go down side roads and come to this deserted beach and you think you have it all to yourself only to go around the corner and see it packed!!!!!

It was almost 5pm and I had picked out what i thought may be a good place to stop although I was only guessing but I found my way to this dirt lane

As soon as I was settled a howling thunderstorm and lightening broke out so I brought the slide out in and it lasted over one hour but now peaceful again and amazing cloud formations…
