Head West

Down at the Lake - CrawCrafts Beasties

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Happy Place.”

Anyone who checks in with the BeastieBlog regularly will know that my favourite place to spend some downtime is at Boyfriend’s family farm, in County Roscommon. Roscommon is one of the semi-forgotten counties in the centre-west of Ireland, which makes it a great place to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet away from the hubbub of central Dublin. And the changing seasons mean that there’s always something new to enjoy, from springtime blossom in the fields…

Autumn here isn’t bad either! The hedgerows are loaded with free snacks…
There is such a thing as a free lunch! CrawCrafts Beasties
… And a misty morning walk can make you feel like you’ve entered some forgotten magical country.

      1. Oh,I have to get up early and that happens even during the weekend when I can stay in bed longer…. It is now a matter of habit but it is lovely indeed to go out for a ride in the chill of the morning…

        1. I am hoping to get out there for a good few days soon, so hopefully I’ll be able to get a couple of early morning walks in. It also helps that I now have a job where I have to get up early, so I’m used to it… Last year I worked in a restaurant and often didn’t get home until 2 or 3am! That makes walking at dawn very unappealing! 😝

        2. Of course,if you had to stay awake late in the night you can’t force yourself to get up early! But I’m glad that now it is different! Enjoy yourself! ❤

    1. Ha, me too! I had to make sure I ate lots of blackberries as I picked them, though, because my dad used most of our haul for homemade wine 😀 Mind you, I really appreciate his winemaking skills now I’m old enough to enjoy them!
