Glendalough

As part of our trip to Dublin we went on a walk around Glendalough, or the valley of the two lakes, if you need translations. Which you don't, because nature is a universal language, and it's very nature. Also pretty. You should go.

The cemetary at Glendalough

The cemetary is a proper old cemetary.

Crossing headstones

It really is quite picturesque (evidenced by this being, in fact, a picture).

Why so high?

According to the plaque, no one's quite sure why the door way was quite so high.

I suspect there was simply a wooden step up and time ravages wood more than stone.

Ferny geometry

This reminded me of the shiny balls at Trinity. But then green. And not spherical.

dogs worrying sheep will be shot

I am imagining someone with a sniper rifle in one of the far away houses to be on the lookout for when dogs are being worrisome, for a spot of target practice.
