Going on a Bear Hunt, A Brave Shaver and a Sale!

I've been battling's winning is all I can say ;-)  so no piccies yet but I have also been busy doing other things.

Firstly, we went on a Bear Hunt...or rather a Maebb's Cairn hunt  (Queen Maeve).

You would think finding an ancient burial cairn on top of a whopping big mountain would be easy right?


Firstly we found....

Some caves up a hill and in a hill....

Then we found......

And then we found.....

A ruined Abby...check out the figure of the head above the door!

And then we found........

Brother Walfrid...who apparently went over to Scotland and started the football team Celtic.....or so I'm told.  I would have glazed over as soon as the reference to football appeared. 

And then we found....

The car park which leads to Maebb's cairn..but it was nearly 5 pm at this point and I didn't fancy getting stuck up there in the we will go and walk up it the next day we have a nice day.

We finished off by cairns and no bears but lots of white horses!

The perfect end to a lovely day.
