Postcard from Connemara for Fun Monday #125
Our hostess this week is Mariposa she says
Let's talk about TEARS. What images spring to mind when you hear the word ‘tears’? Have you ever had tears of laughter and tears of joy? When was the last time you had tears of joy? Tears of laughter? Tell us about it!
Well I'm actually on holiday staying with my youngest daughter this week so I'm slightly bending the rules. We are having a lot of fun and one of the things we did was a ride on the beach at Cleggan in Connemara. We woke up to rain on Saturday morning and began to wonder what we had let ourselves in for but it did clear sufficiently for the duration of the ride. I haven't ridden for a few years and we had to be assessed to show we could control a horse by trotting and cantering in a ring. As you can see Beccy looks happy enough on Rocky.
I suppose you want to see me on my horse, Tom, just prove I really did the ride. This is the beach and we rode across to Omey Island which you can only do at low tide.
Afterwards I was so stiff and sore the tears I could have shed would not have been tears of joy. Nevertheless a beach ride has been on my bucket list so I would not have missed it for the world. Sadly I do now realise that my riding days are over as the old joints are no longer supple enough.
