Lough Hyne

We hiked up the rocky hill beside Lough Hyne. The narrow, muddy, slippery, sometimes obstructed, uphill path challenged us, but at the top the view rewarded us. It was a clear day so we could see beyond Baltimore!

Afterward, we had lunch in Skibbereen (aka, Skibb) at The Fields market cafe. It is just inside the main entrance to the left and you go through the line to choose what you want then find a table. I opted for the egg salad sandwich and what appeared to be a donut (less icky sweet than the American donut though). They even provide tap water so it was a budget-minded and quick alternative to a sit-down meal. My sandwich cost less than three euros.
There were some cute shops in Skibb. Most notably is a little place just off the main street. It carries handbags, wallets, stylish jewelry, and canes. The entire shop seemed like it had my favorite goodies – no Orla Kiely or Jasper Conran though.
