Sunset over the Mournes

The Mourne Wall  casts strong shadows in the light of the setting sun. The first time we've had a sunny sunset since the Solstice

the wall from Slieve Bernagh down to the Hare's Gap


Tractors Galore!

Last week it was vintage cars in Mount Stewart.
Today the theme continued with around 150 tractors passing our gates on the Marie Curie Tractor Run!
The line of tractors was a sight to behold, it must have been 3 miles long.
We hope much money was raised for this great charity who provide vital care to those most in need of our help.
Congratulations to all who put in the hard work and made it the success that it was!
In the lead - Marie Curie truck

I'm loving this!

and they just keep on coming

still running - along the Lighthouse road across the valley

a rake of blue Fords

so long
tail enders

that was fantastic - when can I get one?

Before and After

I was printing out a before and after shot of the Turnip House so thought I'd put it here too:
taken when we were just scouting around - didn't notice the turnip cutter lying against the wall to the left

taken this morning the turnip cutter is still there!
