Two Days of Glorious Sites and Lots of Weather - Day 1

With my tent in the car I set off for a weekend in Waterford. The weather forecast was mixed, but that didn't matter: I have sites to see and not a lot of time to see them in.

I met up with Derek on Saturday morning and off we set. The main target of our journey was to climb Seefin in the Monavullagh Mountains to see the cairns on its summit and the standing stone half way up. At over 720m high this is a big climb, but it is well worth it. Even on a miserable, cloudy day the views were tremendous.

Our route took us past a bunch of the sites in Coumeraglinmountain townland. I'd been there before, but in bad mist/fog. I'm still amazed I ever found the monuments - this time it took us longer to find some of them with no fog!
