Part of today's experience was to see how the new Boyle Town to Lough Key Forest bus service was going to work out.
Waiting for the bus it turned up at exactly Noon but pick up was different to where I expected. The bus backs up to the front of the old AIB Bank Building, just below the Clock Tower.
there was nobody else to return to Boyle.
Passing this folly
There was a couple of water taps. I did not see any toilets or shower though.
Time passed by quickly and it was time to head back for a quick cuppa at a picnic table and see if others would turn up.
We set off and first stop, enter into the wonder of the Cedar trees
we went off to the nearby Fairy Bridge
Water looking good below here
and then the dogs led the way to the Fairy Ring
Not far ahead ...
On the path back to get our food, I saw that the canal path was closed off. This is my favourite path and it is along here I wrote my Fearn The Alder poem due to falling catkins I could not catch due to the strong breeze.

Dorothy has only had Esta in her care for two weeks. They already have a wonderful bond :-)
I, well all of us, look forward to Esta and Dorothy sharing with us again for another Bards N'The Woofs.
