West Cork I: around Toe Head

holiday 2020 was a fortnight in West Cork, south-west Ireland

at the end of summer

the first week, a cottage on Toe Head

Stacks, Toe Head cliffs

an edge-of-the-world wilderness on the Atlantic

Sea arch at Toe Head

Toe Head is near Skibbereen but feels apart, remote

Nearby places with magical names:

Leap, Roaring Water Bay, Chimney Cove

Barleycove, Crookhaven, Squince

Sherkin, Inchydoney, Mizen

Ballydehob, Ring, Owenahincha

Schull was our least favourite settlement, then Baltimore

(too polished, yahty; a bit smug?).
