The extra 5km from the day before made for an easy start in the morning, already on trail within minutes, leading me to another stunning view top.The extra 5km from the day before made for an easy start in the morning, already on trail within minutes, leading me to another stunning view top.

Les 5 km en plus de la veille m’ont permis un depart facile ce matin, en quelques minutes j’etais deja sur le chemin qui m’emmena vers les hauteur our j’admirai la vue sensationelle.

 

Soon passing Louis Mulcahy’s  pottery studio (http://www.louismulcahy.com), way to get inspired in the location he had set his place.

20 minutes into the walk I arrived at the picturesque Clogher Beach, it was striking scenery; I was giddy like a kid, watching the waves clash over the rocks… I was torn I had a whole day ahead of me, 22km to complete but the view was just keeping me there, so I just decided to enjoy.

Après 20 minutes de marche, j’arrivai a la plage Clogher, un paysage saisissant, j’étais comme une enfant, qui regardait les vagues se casser sur les rochers… j’étais déchirée d’avoir encore toute une journée devant moi, 22km a compléter mais la vue saisissante me retenait la, alors j’ai simplement profite du moment.

And I just read this daily meditation piece and it just encompass exactly what I felt

Let us be still for a few moments, without moving even our little finger

So that a hush descends upon us.There would be no place to go, nor to come from, for we would have arrived in this extraordinary moment;

There would be a stillness and silence, that would fill all of our senses, where all things would find their rest.

Everything would then be together in a deep connection, putting an end to ‘us and them’ this against that;

We would not move in these brief moments, for that would disturb this palpable presence;

There would be nothing to be said nor done, for life would embrace us in this wondrous meeting, and take us into its arms as a loving friend.

Christopher Titmus

Voila that was my spectacular moment…

Je viens juste de lire ce passage de méditation et il englobe exactement ce que j’ai ressenti

Soyons immobile pour quelques instants, sans même bouger le petit doigt pour que le calme descende sur nous.

Il n’y aurai nulle part ou aller, nulle part d’ou venir, car nous serions arrive dans ce moment extraordinaire;

Il y aurai calme et silence, qui empliraient tous nos senses, où toutes les choses trouveraient leur repos.

Tout serait ensemble dans une profonde connexion,

Mettant fin a ‘nous et eux’ ceci contre cela, on ne bougerai  pas dans ces brefs moments, car cela dérangerai cette présence palpable;

Il n’y aurai rien a dire ni rien a faire, pour la vie qui nous embrassera dans cette merveilleuse rencontre,

Et nous prendrai dans ces bras comme un tendre ami.

Voila, c’était mon moment spectaculaire…

Once I had sucked in all that greatness of the moment, I stood up and kept on going… because I had a place to go to…

It was a long, very long road, with lots of nothing to enjoy (Dingle golf club, fields, road) so I put on my audio book and that kept me on going. 

Une fois bien imprégnée de toute c’est grandeur du moment, je suis répartie… car j’avais un endroit ou aller

C’était une longue, très longue route, avec beaucoup de ‘rien a voir’ (le golf, les champs, la route) alors, j’ai écoute mon livre audio qui m’a bien motivée a continuer.

 

Break time in Dún An Óir (Fort del Oro) in Smerwick

Fantastic views despite the horrible history

After the 6km on the wine strand beach I took a break in Ballydavid’s pub where they spoke mostly Irish and served no cappuccino, simply tea or coffee..

Once again I left the civilization behind me to embark on a cliff walk, as good if not better than moher and kilkee all together. All to myself, until a lady snooped behind me and gave me a terrible fright. ‘not the place to give a fright’ she says as she passed by… damn right, I was so absorbed into taking pics that I didn’t even sense her presence.

Encore une fois je laissai la civilisation derrière moi pour emprunter un chemin sur les falaises, c’était bien, mieux voir meilleur que Moher et Kilkee. Rien que pour moi cette vue, jusqu’a ce qu’une dame qui se baladai surgisse derrière moi et me foute la trouille. “C’est pas un endroit pour faire peur au gens’ qu’elle commente en passant. Tu m’étonnes, j’étais tellement absorbée par mes photos que je ne l’ai pas sentie venir.

 

I was again giddy like a kid, because I never get bored of the spectacular waves breaking on the cliffs, the sound is deafening, the smell of the sea is intense and the grass is comfy like a memory foam mattress.

Encore une fois j’étais comme une gamine, on ne se lasse jamais des vagues spectaculaires que se cassent sur les falaises, leur bruit assourdissant, l’odeur intense de la mer et l’herbe est confortable comme un matelas memory foam.

After another long, very long tarmac road, I finally arrived in a B&B, no hostel had to upgrade myself well it was worse it, lovely people, fantastic views from the room, a bath to recover and good warm food to regenerate.

Apres une autre très longue, très très longue route, je suis finalement arrive au B&B, pas une auberge car y’en avait pas alors j’ai du me surclasser. Ca valait la peine, les hôtes étaient sympas, la vue de ma chambre mortelle, une baignoire pour me remettre et un bon plat chaud pour me restaurer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The perfect ending to a day for me is to simply sit and be able to watch the sun set, no matter what country I'm in, with someone or alone, rich poor, there is always a feeling of peace watching the sun 'go to sleep'
