And Then There Was Fog!

I knew it was going to be a wet day, but no one said anything about loads of fog! I was fortunate that the fog didn't manifest itself until well into the afternoon, but it still interfered with the last two sites on my itinery.

Like last week I was in Antrim again. The journey really is an easy one and I have seen so little in the county. I still have loads to see there, but I'm slowly getting through them. If I have a clear day within the next couple of weeks I think I may well be up there again.

The sites on my list that I did manage to get to today were all tombs: Country Antrim has a lot of tombs! Around the passage tomb at Cross I came across many stones that could be standing stones, but I only recorded one of them. I could have spent all day looking around the hillside there - a job someone really needs to do as I think there may be at least one other (very ruined) tomb up there as well.

I will start adding this week's sites as soon as I've finished adding last week's images. Hopefully I will have this done by the end of Monday evening. There are also quite a few updates to this website that you may have noticed recently. Images ar enow grouped together with the notes for the day they were taken, which makes it easier to see what's what. I have also changed the information on the trip log pages to show how many images have been added to a site on this particular trip, rather than showing the total number of images for a site. There are many such minor changes that will hopefully make using easier and more pleasurable.

Soon the site will have its own secure certificate and my new shop will be operational. I shall soon be looking for new products that are of a good enough quality for me to want to sell - I will not be selling Newgrange teatowels!
