The Road to Trumpton
As part of my preparation to walk the Camino Way for a week in June with old friend Andrew P, I decided to do a local walk which I had long aspired to, but never delivered...the sea route from our house to the Doonbeg Golf course resort (aka "Trumpton" for obvious reasons).
As only had 2 hours, it had to be swift and determined with no stopping for sights and not many photos. Started at dead low tide at our house on Clohaninchy beach, and an hour later I'd crossed the two bays and lots of beautiful beach to stand in front of that carbuncular edifice. You can't blame Trump, it looked like that before he bought it. At which point you realise it doesn't even have proper beach access (and Doughmore beach is lovely).
Retracing my steps was slightly less fun, but saw what as left of a motor boat of some sort at the other end of or beach. Harsh, harsh winters. Walk was almost exactly 10 k, just under 2 hours. New boots. And I'm stiff as a board now.
