Hen Track was enveloped in mist but it didn't dampen the spirits of our walkers who enjoyed another great outing led by Ruth. Bertha discovered a turf barrow but was persuaded not to bring it home for her front garden. Click on link below for more pics.
It was a lovely walk from Kinnego Marina to Oxford Island - both lakeside and forest. And of course it was another perfect day for walking. Thanks go to Gordon for leading the walk. Click on the pic to enlarge or click on link below for more pics.
John lends a steadying hand over Bloody Bridge River.
There were nearly as many birds as people in a sunny Hillsborough Forest Park - another perfect day.
It was another perfect day for walking in a perfect setting - 7½ miles through Tollymore looking at its autumnal best. A red sqirrel was spotted but it was camera shy.
Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss'd cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o'er-brimm'd their clammy cells.
Another perfect day for walking at Castlewellan on 15 October 2020. Fantastic walk in amazing colours - some were even luck enough to see red squirrels. Thanks to Gordon, Ruth and Reuben a great time was had by all.

Another less than perfect day for walking at Loughgall Country Park and Craigavon's Lakes. It was a good test for the water proofing on our coats and leggings but the rain wasn't as bad as had been expected and by tea time most of us were dry and warm again.
A group of intrepid walkers in the Annalong Valley on 22 October 2020.
Another perfect day for walking at Hen Mountain, Cock Mountain and Pigeon Rock on 15 October 2020.
Another perfect day for walking - Ruth and Reuben leading a walk on the sun kissed beach at Murlough. Click on link below to view pics of the walk from Leitrim Lodge led by Gordon and the walk from Kilbroney to Knockshee.
