A Real Scorcher Of A Day In Waterford

The only way I got wet today was through getting very hot, wandering around County Waterford in the 24? heat. What a beautiful day!

Having seen so many of Waterford's greatest monuments it's getting difficult to get from one site to another. The sites I still need to see are spread so thinly, that it takes me all day to see half a dozen. It is worth it, though. There are so many wonderful places in Waterford that it is always a pleasure to be there. The people are really friendly, too: always keen to help, and even to take you to the stones if they have time.

Today wasn't all about the monuments: I was also focusing on the landscape around them. Sometimes, when you are visiting a lot of sites it is easy to not see what's going on around you - to not see where the monument actually is. Every now and then it's worth taking a little time to do this.

Occasionally, it is also worth dedicating an hour of a stretched day to finding one monument, even if the farmer doesn't know it's on his land. My hunt for the three bullaun stones in Kilbrack was partially successful - I found one of them, and what a wonderful example it is, too.
