Bray Head Hike

Yesterday Scruffy and family set off to explore Bray Head, which is a 740 foot hill in the Wicklow mountains.  Here’s the town as we approached:

On the beach, where it is illegal to remove even a single rock:

A brief frolic in the grassy picnic area:

Trudging uphill – It’s said that it takes about a half hour for a fit person to climb to the top.  However, with Mommy carrying the geriatric dog through the more rugged spots, it can take a little longer…

Lovely vistas all the way:

Finally arrived at the summit.  According to Wikipedia, every Good Friday hundreds of local people climb to the top of the head in a Good Friday procession.

Chloe was a little tired from pulling Greg up the whole way.

It was a little windy up there.

Enjoyed some traditional fish and chips in the warmth of the car (but note the T-shirts worn by locals) while admiring the view of the cross from down below:
