A Weekend in Cork - Day 1

This weekend my wife and I headed off to County Cork for a spot of sight/site seeing. She hadn't been to Cork before so it was a great excuse to revisit a few favourites whilst seeing some new stuff too. Saturday morning was dismal and I really did consider turning back for home at one point: the rain just kept coming. By the time we arrived at our first site it had stopped though. The rest of the day was warm, but mainly overcast.

After visiting a few monuments we headed for the campsite so that we (a) were sure to have a place and (b) could go out and not have to think about rushing to get the tent up if it started raining again. The campsite we chose was The Meadows campsite just 1 mile from Drombeg (County Cork). This meant we could walk up to the stones in the evening and chill out for a while. This campsite is very nice, but does lack a shop so take everything you need with you: it was a half hour round trip to get some milk!

After setting up the tent we set off again to see a few more places. After our evening meal we walked to Drombeg and watched the sun set. It's not too spectacular at this time of year as the sun sets behind a hill. There's just a pinky glow in that directon. However, a sunset is a sunset and it's always a pleasure to experience one with someone you love!
