At Dursey Island

Today we are going to take the cable car to Dursey Island. The weather today appears to be rain all day.

The cable car is more utility than glamorous.

A few years ago it was used for the transport of sheep as well as people.

The car passes over some spectacular water.

On Dursey Island there are the usual sheep farms and stone structures.

There is also a site of an ancient monastary. There was a great battle at the site in 1602. At that time the structure was already a ruin having been built much earlier by the Spanish and then dismantled by pirates.

The landscape is beautiful.

Today was relatively short, about ten miles. Tomorrow we are off to Eyeries. Tomorrow will be a long hike day.
