The Windy Gap Pad

Recently we went for a Sunday walk!


Not something we've done for quite a while what with one thing and another(!)


The Windy Gap, a nick in Slievenaboley Mountain is 1.1 miles up the hill from us. There are spectacular views of the County Down countryside in every direction.


It was a bright sharp day. we were well rewarded for our efforts:

looking across mid Down towards County Armagh
Fantastic clouds looming over the Dromara Hills

The Windy Gap Pad

Cave Hill, beyond Belfast

The Distant Mournes against the horizon

A patchwork of fields - and an unusual view of Legananny Dolmen


Our frequent companion - The Red Kite

Beautiful pictures John. Your new home is coming along wonderfully. It's amazing what you have been able to accomplish in a short time.

How are Kate and the baby doing?

My best to Elaine, Kate and James.
