One of my favorite walks is to go up the road past the old church (see yesterday’s post), then keep going straight to the coast and walk along the rocks and beside the fields to the town pier. Doolin can get quite busy in the tourist season, but it’s possible to do this walk without seeing anyone but cows.
The first photo looks back along the coast where I’ve been walking. If you look closely, you can see some cows and a bull. Their field runs right down to the rocky beach, with no fence needed. That means there was nothing but bad footing between me and the bull! That bad footing dissuaded him from checking me out too closely, but I was very aware that my progress was being watched.
The second photo was taken further along the coast. In the distance, on the horizon, you can just make out the Cliffs of Moher.
