I am not a great distance traveller. For me I get as much wandering down a local beach as going to some foreign country. Don’t get me wrong, I love to explore new places and cultures, but I find the actual travelling stressful and like my home-comforts too much!
This is one of my favourite Mayo beaches.

Downpatrick head on the NW coast of County Mayo here in the West of Ireland has some of the most dramatic sea cliffs you can find in Ireland. It was a bit foggy the day this picture was taken.

Bees and flowers just go hand in hand. Without one we wouldn’t have the other. Many of our wild pollinators are also vital for pollinating many of our food crops. Without them there would be no apples, strawberries, coffee, chocolate and much much more.
