By the time we emerged an hour later the sun was setting over Tragumna, which of course created magnificant lighting. The views over Drishane Island and the Tragumna pier are particularly beautiful at that time of evening.
Monday afternoon saw us head to Lough Hyne, Ireland's first Nature Reserve with splended woodland walks towering ever so high. With encouragement from hubby I did manage to climb up onto the first layer, if you like, and was generously rewarded by the breathtaking views down onto the lake and roadside. I loved every minute.
Later that evening we learned that there would be a full moon so at around 10.30pm I got hubby to accompany me to our little cove where we just stood and listened to the waves and watched in awe, the amazing moonshine turn the water to silver. It's a memory that will remain with me forever.
