Glenmacnass Waterfall

Glenmacnass Waterfall falls from near the summit of Mullaghcleevaun, the second highest mountain in Wicklow, down to the valley we viewed yesterday.

A bit slippery on the rocks in the waterfall so careful!

Lough Tay

The scenic and dark Lough Tay set between the mountains of Luggala and Djouce is a vista which we have pictured several times but one which is always a delight to return to. The startlingly white sand of the beach which forms the northern coastline marks one of the boundaries of the Luggala Estate belonging to the Guinness family.

Cloghogue Valley

A few days ago, we toured around the Wicklow Mountains in the area of the Sally Gap and, passing Luggala, we just couldn't resist this view over the Cloghogue Valley with Lough Dan in the distance.

Things are looking up on Bray promenade, especially now that the summer season has begun and the traffic on the prom has increased accordingly, well, weather permitting!

The Other Side Of Town

Every town has an 'other side' and Wicklow Town is no different, with this view of an area of light industry situated on it's northern edge and sitting alongside the nature reserve of The Murrough wetlands, in the background, which itself stretches a further 15 kms to the north.

The Slow Food Movement

It's lunchtime at the seaside, so it must be fish and chips and what better place to indulge than the seafront at Bray, County Wicklow, as this line of hungry punters slowly wend their way to gastronomic nirvana!

The Solitary Cormorant

I've only ever seen one cormorant at a time, feeding in Wicklow Harbour, presumably this is the same one that I pictured in this earlier post. Solitary fishing seems to be the norm for cormorants in these parts especially in springime during the breeding season.

The Harbour Kite

This guy and his kite are a new and welcome addition to the ever changing scene around Wicklow Harbour.
