It's pouring rain as I write this :yuck: :down:
But yesterday was half descent so we decided to head for the sea. Specifically the lighthouse at Hook Head.
Just to add to the adventure we went by way of Passage East and took the ferry.
You can't really make them out, but on the cliffs were a herd of goats that we drove by down to the village. There was no way to stop and we didn't have time to go back as we just caught the ferry. Otherwise I would have gotten some close-ups. There were some real Puck goats in the herd.
The lighthouse is well set up as an attraction. There was a good restaurant, a play area for children, even free Wi-Fi :up: Though I didn't have time to use it.
The tour of the lighthouse was very good. The guide was great – friendly and knowledgeable – and there were some stunning views.
After the tour we took a short walk along the shore. Mom spotted a seal popping its head up for a look but everytime I tried for a photo it stubbornly stayed under until the rain, which had held off up to then, started and we headed back to the car.
