Writer Out and About








This week I travelled to the scenic town of Carlingford. It is funny, but living in Ireland I sometimes forget how beautiful the country really is. A trip out to Carlingford and I remember. It was a cold day, but very sunny. I'm afraid my photographs don't do the loch justice. It looked much nicer in reality. Because of the weather I didn't get much writing done, but I did do some thinking and plotted out a story I am going to write this week, so it was worth the journey.
I brought with me:-
1. My car (too far to walk!)
2. My trusty notepad
3. A nice inky black pen
4. Too few clothes for writing outdoors in Ireland in January

Very pretty country. Hope to visit someday, though the little ones make that a more expensive challenge.

I like your travelogue. The way you list what you brought with you.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks G.C. Remember to look me up when you visit. :)

Hi Catherine. It is a lovely place all year round. I'm lucky to live near enough to visit it regularly. Sorry - don't mean to make you feel worse! :)

Cold finger syndrome is not good. I remember having to wear gloves when I was working in a supposedly heated office! Get your mittens out.
