August walk on the lovely
Knockadoon Peninsula in East Cork
|The old signal tower over 200 years old.|
It was built during the Napoleonic wars in response to the threat of a French invasion. There were 81 such towers with line-of-sight visibility from one to the next.
|Ballycotton Lighthouse, in the hazy distance.|
|Heading west, ocean to the left, cornfields to the right|
|Weather-beaten. This old post has been here for a long time|
|Painted Lady (afaik)|
|Lots of natural colours|
|Youghal in the distance across the water, with cornfields ripening, above and below|
|The Lobster Pot on Knockadoon. If you are relying on this you need to check opening hours before you go.|
|Rocks, slip and pier|
|Youghal in the distance.|
