A Jaunt to Slea Head

Sleeping Giant Blasket Island I had a bit of free time yesterday, and since the weather was stunning, I decided to take a jaunt out Slea Head.

Blasket IslandsI don’t get back West as much as I would like, but when I’m there, looking out at the Blasket Islands, walking in the green grass, and basking in the calm, I think I surely must be blessed to have all of this at my doorstep.

By the way, in case you don’t get the top photo, Inis Tuaisceart is also called the Sleeping Giant…

    whoah, awesome double take moment. That is amazing, the sleeping giant. I think I may have heard of that, like on a travel documentary or something. Beautiful photos. Those sheep aren’t jumping off the cliff I hope…haha

    Very clever photo — perfectly executed!

    Slea Head is so lovely! I don’t know how you get any work done, living so close . . . .

    Great photo, one of our favorite areas on Slea Head. But my wife claims “The Giant” seems to be more “excited” about the scenery than you. Only she would notice. See you at Murphy’s in October.
