Leftovers from old days

Along the road there were so many wonderful places that it was countless. I really fast came to love this island and its people. The sites where I had to stop were numerous. This became especially evident when I left the N71 at Dromacoosane and drove along R591 towards Sheep’s Head and Crookhaven. Here country started to change character; small mountains or cliffs started to appear and it got even better when I started to see the water at Durrus.

 

There were almost nobody else on the roads and I stopped the car many times just to step out and enjoy the view even though I had a long trip in front of me and a lot of other places to see. I had no hurry and I was still confident that I would make everything.

 

At Durrus the landscape split into two long tongues of land; one ending at Sheep’s Head and the other one at Mizen Head. I had decided that I would go to Crookhaven, so that it became. At Coolcoulaghta I took some pictures where the tongues of land had split. The sun was shining in the water and was giving me some wonderful reflections, it was very beautiful.
