Two consecutive days of sunshine and enter Newcastle Saturday, Pacific-rim four-by-fours as Panzer divisions enter Poland - prerequisites to dropping Doris at Lidl, transporting toots to Granny’s and essential for sitting at the kerb, being ….. big: big enough to deliver the Ponderosa its entire stock of longhorn. And flying pigs. And so it pleases us to rise above this milieu, literally and some might venture (fearless of contradiction)…. socially. I couldn’t comment. To effect this …. “repositioning” and also enjoy a whole new experience, suivez moi. What the Mournes can present in comfort, safety and special features, they can lose in wilderness, not from viewpoints like Pigeon Rock, the Carn/Ott-nots and such, but from within. There are few hotspots in their heartland where their boundless emptiness fills an addled head with visions of Yetis and Loch Ness Monsters. And so my heart did a big lep when it found itself vacuumed from a vast carpet of cloud, on to a magical new world of heathen barrenness, hare, raven and skylark. Beneath, cold enough to hang meat. Above only 400ms, fierce enough to fry chips. First, hang a left, South over the Midpace Burn; threaten a dodgy hip and make off over wind-thin barbed wire fences. Methinks here be Tony Martins - stay vigilant. At a casual stroll in this foreign heat, perhaps the hint of fresh-ground coffee and Pastisse, soon to be overtaken by wafts of sizzling polartec and deep fried neck. Hot, hot, hot …. but at all points, no wall, no track, and with the cloud beneath, apparently no land or sea either, but bold, wide inclines through nascent heather and hot flat rock, to place summer orders for floral armchairs and boggling scenes of hill, dale, sand and sea. Locus: Slievenagarragh our most Easterly Mourne.
