Went for a pre-lunch walk at the nature reserve/ex-opencast coalmine by Drongan. The farm by there has alpacas, one newly brought in from New Zealand.
There are benches around the paths, used for walking, cycling and riding
This is "Kenny's View" over the site and towards the village
and I foraged
I didn't pick any of these...
The shortening days mean we get out as much as possible. The Pirate is getting a little sad, partly because of less light,partly because getting over his treatment takes a long time.He is running out of being a patient patient as he sees himself getting older.....riding his bike helps massively.
Meanwhile we do have something to look forward to...airline tickets booked, lodgings reserved (a garage sleepout!).
Hesitating while confirming lodgings cost us £200 each as the pound sterling continued to fall...and "Brexit" hasn't even happened...the Gods help us if it ever does....we are too old and too skint to emigrate. My Irish ancestry is just too far back to get an Irish passport. We don't have family anywhere we want to go.....
So inertia must be fought, art done and sold so we can feed ourselves while we are away. The Pirate has already sold some bike kit, now to sort,clean price and photograph the next batch.

We also found a painter/sculptor and talked to his wife who runs the gallery...they do have other painters' work there...maybe they'd be open to some lino prints or a few selected pots....
