ABOVE THEIR STATION
The Annalong track is the main track proper into the Eastern Mournes. The same kind of thing as ex Clydagh Bridge in the Galtees or Cronins Yard in the Reeks or Glendalough.
It starts after a 10 minute walk up from Carricklittle which is itself a good 15 minutes drive from any serious habitation.
In short, you have to go out of your way to be on it.
So yesterday, coming off Binnian I was entertained to see 2 coppers climbing over the stile on to it and the expanse facing them of the Mourne Mountains.
A him one and a her one - him glugging a bottle of juice like a corner boy; her all crimped and pink with a big annoying English accent.
The sun was splitting the stones.
"The perks of the job" I said to him.
"Grunt", said he back.
Then to little Miss, "What are you looking for up here?"
"Ah we're just out for a walk."
Now I recall that I pay them to protect my life and my property and a few other non-troublesome things like pirated CDs, embezzlement and insider trading that no one cares about. What I don't recall is paying them to be out for a walk in the sun on the Annalong track.
Let me extend an invitation for them to join me for a walk on the Annalong track ......... in January.
