6:05pm Got up here on what was beautiful evening after fab day bit of cool breeze but at same time twas pleasant evening up here.
June 23rd Saint John’s Eve people long ago would climb up here on that evening as sun was setting and kneel besides cross and say their prayers often heard my Father on about this twas still big thing when he was young God bless ‘em all now.
There is Holy Well at foot hill about 150 yards down and tradition back then you said decade Rosary as you climbed from Well to Cross and repeated this till all 5 decades said hill very steep here but they had path made winding sideways from all use still parts this visible to this day.
Years ago circle stones here around cross many them have fallen down but amazing thing cross has never moved Saint Ciaran’s Mother supposed be buried here not sure but think he was around at time Saint Patrick that’s going back long way.
6:21pm Have moved west further on hill get better view sunset its been long time since up here better make most of it God only knows when we here again
That’s Dunlough Bay in distance where sun disappears being when day here is done.
6:26pm such a beautiful clear sky would give us hope that another fine day on way in morning well suppose time will tell but it looks that way from here right now.
Have to say view from here on an evening like this makes all climbing worthwhile it’s just shame tidal stream not in full twud only add picture anyway we get that another time.
6:38pm Last peep of sun up here this evening as another day ends it’s been great day here and we now looks forwards to what next day brings us.
Bang in centre of Dunlough Bay sun sets this time years besides Stone Circle what wonderful view no doubt its great place be buried if only access was easier.
7:05pm As we make our way back via Ardsolough this view of Crookhaven with Fastnet Rock Light Beam getting stronger by minute as night air falls over place real chill about place as we move along.
Nearly 1am on what’s fine clear starry night outside not puff wind but cold air temp only 1c reckon they be lots frost before morning hope not.
That’s all so its bye for now and goodnite from here
