Where am I ?
I can think of no better thing to do on a summer's day than to have an aimless and unhurried wander in the Mournes. Starting at the harbour in Newcastle I followed the Granite Trail leading up to Millstone and Thomas's mountain. Taking time out to at the viewpoint to admire Dundrum Bay illuminated by the sun's refulgent rays. I then doubled back to join the main forest track to the Glen River and followed the path from there up to the coll between Donard and Commedagh. It was on the descent from the coll that I encountered him. With his two arms the one length he was dressed more for a night on the town than on a mountain. His only visible piece of kit was a half consumed bottle of water. "Hello there, great day " I said. It soon became clear he hadn't a clue where he was because as soon as he caught his breath he asked "Where does this take me to ?" "This takes you up to the coll " I replied. With a grand sweep of his arm he enquired " What do you call that one "? "That one is Donard and that one is Commedagh." I responded with equally grand gestures. "Which one's the biggest ?" he asked. "Slieve Donard " said I. "Slieve Donard it is then" he declared........... and was gone. I sometimes wonder what became of him.
