It’s been a quiet number of weeks with us lately; our work lives have been busy and our free time hasn’t fallen together into a period where we can all enjoy a camp together. Hopefully that will soon end and we can get some outings done over the winter holidays, but until then I’m going to reminisce over a walk Ed and I enjoyed a few weeks ago in Glenariff forest park, Co. Antrim.
It was cloudy and grey to begin with in the morning, but by the time we had had our coffee and sausage roll from the motoroway service station on our way there, the cloud had cleared and the sun was shining.
It’s definitely one of the best times of the year to walk around this forest, as the colour of the trees turn a lovely warm golden brown.
We took our time enjoying the scenery and trying to take some nice photographs, and we weren’t the only ones; the forest’s most popular waterfalls of Ess Na Laragh and Ess Na Crub were dotted with tripods and their accompanying photographers, but we enjoyed ourselves none the less.
It was nice to see a change in the landscape, even if it is a sign of the dark night and short days very soon approaching – but we’ll just have to enjoy it and hope for some snow to play in!
