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

Looks familiar!

I have a Google alert for 'Mournes' and this came up today - check out this picture of the Mournes by Sam Campbell - beautiful

Not a bad job on the house either!
