Aoradh wilderness trip 2011- some photos…

Fantastic weekend!

The island was wonderful, very much exceeding my expectations. It was perhaps the smallest of our retreat destinations, but at the same time was packed full of delights-

Ancient monastic sites- church, beehive cells, a hermits cave.

Wildlife like you would not believe- otters, seabirds, seals, corncrakes. Nearby ospreys (seen on the return.) Also- a complete absence of ticks and midges!

Sun- three days with barely a cloud. Sure, it was windy, but mostly gloriously warm. Warm enough for diving into the sea for some of us!

We sat round fires, walked out meditations and laughed a lot.

It was wonderful.

Thanks to all of you that came along…
