What? You've never heard of beach cows? Here's the thing: everywhere you turn in Ireland, there are cows. Other farm animals, as well, like sheep and horses, but nothing in the abundance of those cows! In addition to beach cows, we saw mountain cows in Ireland (like mountain goats, but cows... cows on the side of steep hills). :)
During our travels, we found our way to a few different beaches. Going along skinny, little roads, we found the narrow beach you'll see below. When we got there, as you will see, we found a beach to our right, a narrow parking lot and a field to the left. There being a green field, and this being Ireland, cows had been placed on it. As I told Marc, I wonder if there may be more cows than people in Ireland. Seriously! I may have to poke around online and look for an answer.
So here are some photos of the beach and cows...
The parking lot, with beach to the right and field past the wall to the left.
And here we first spy the beach cows.
I seem to have captured the interest of this cow.
We say hello.
A profile shot; and notice the fancy earring!
And then I apparently said something wrong. Let the stampede begin! (Okay, a small stampede.)
Run away! Run away!
My new friend ran, and so the others followed. I guess they were worried they might miss something!
And now, a beach shot.
And one more.
Okay, that's it for today's post!
