The photo above taken yesterday on the dry day after a slog through water,mud, and slippery grass from Kilsheelin to Carrick along the towpath was exhausting but exhilarating - though not for the fainthearted!
This is the state of the tarmac at this point below Dove Hill,a section of about thirty metres.The rest,2 kms
possibly has borne up extremely well,as has the section with stone laid and still in place,stretching back almost to Hackett's Fishery.
Slides 3 and 4 show the boundary wall below MSD at Ballydine.This wall,old and in pretty good nick,is marked in places for repair and repointing and further back for rebuilding.
One fallen tree remains making walking difficult and for the second time in a little over a week I left my pruning saw at home - will have to resurrect that small piece of twine!
Today is promising good as I write so if you have an hour or two to hand,put on the boots,wrap up and get going and enjoy the experience.Be careful.
Am off to the Rock shortly to make up for the neglect of the past few weeks.Enjoy your weekend.
