After the exertions of the Gravel Grinder and the Slaughter it was nice to take the pace back a bit and visit somewhere other than Slieve Martin . Brian was suitably late as usual , Doc Lewis and Peter were straining at the leash as usual , Herself and the COC remained restrained at the rear of affairs as usual .
Burma , Sallys , to post where the sun appeared to brighten our day but too late to dry the mountain which was mostly a mud bath . Visited Knockshee where we paused to gaze at a large buzzard circling effortlessly overhead , the antithesis of our efforts! Drooped down past the bath and without Rowan to get us lost found the gully . The river was in high spirits and we were entertained as Brian demonstrated various yoga poses during his crossing. Up towards fallow corner with no sightings of the long lost Garmin unfortunately. Home from here for all but the youngsters who headed over Slieve Meel.
As Christmas approaches ,the calendar is nearly ready and the Spectre of Cairnuary looms in the middle distance.All we need is a nice bit of snow.
