Just In 🙌
A couple years ago I took a trip with my at the time new friend @cabottrailbiker to Cape Clear, Nova Scotia.
after a 40-kilometer dirt bike ride from Hunter's Mountain, we arrived. When we arrived we were greeted by three climbers from Ground Zero Climbing gym in Dartmouth who were just about to drop in on this 800+ foot climb.
I've beam sitting on this footage not knowing quite what to do with it and this morning I finally put together this little edit. it is just too beautiful not to share. #novascotia #explorenovascotia #dirtbike #capeclear #explore #ride #drone #climb #fly #capebreton #explorecapebreton
Nice view to end my day with.
The small little "tower" to the left is the #fastnetrock lighthouse also nicknamed "Irelands teardrop" because it was the very last piece of Ireland that people emigrating saw when leaving by ships during and after the famine. .
The lighthouse sits on a small rock in the ocean 6.5kms from the island of Cape Clear. In 1985 a wave hit it measuring 157 feet (48m) high, in 2017 it recorded wind speeds of 191 kph (119mph). There was people crazy enough to live in it up until 1989 😮

First pub in Ireland to sell this Irish coastal Gin
#throwback to simpler times... summer 2019 was pretty sweet and leaves me anticipating seeing my home again soon🌲🌳
I’ve lived here for 20 years of my life and this is the first time I’ve branched out, it makes you realize how small your hometown is and how much of the world there is left to see🌎 I believe you can have multiple homes all around the world, wherever you are as long as its with people you love🏠♥️
Although change is good, and needed, it’s ok to sometimes feel homesick. Its important to know where you came from and while adding new exciting adventures into your life, never leave behind the people and places that mean the most to you. 🌞
Cape Clear, Baltimore, Ireland. I took this picture in 2017. It was a good year for me as my career was just starting to take off. I still have so much work to do, patience is key. Landscapes like this make me happy and help me to find some inner peace. I also spotted three choughs (Pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax) and several fin whales (Balaenoptera physalus), so........chuffed to bits!!!!! A gorgeous place indeed.
Throwback to a visit to Cape Clear during the summer, where we got to visit a goat farm! Was such a lovely experience, the kids loved it..... as you can see, Oliver was in his element hugging a goat! Sher, why not! 🐐
The lady there was so nice and knowledgeable about these lovely beings.... who knew hanging out with goats could make you so happy!
| When I decided to drive around Ireland and do photography, this location was a no brainer. Fastnet Rock is the southernmost point of the country, 12km from the mainland. It is sometimes referred to as Ireland’s Teardrop as it was the last part of the country emigrants would see on their way to North America and it evoked a multitude of emotions in them. It was built in 1853 due to the large amount of shipwrecks caused when the original lighthouse was more than a kilometre from the cliff shores of Cape Clear Island. Lighthouse keepers would spend 3 months at a time using the light to communicate with the other nearby lighthouses and ships and was considered to be the loneliest place in Europe. Where so I sign up? #loveireland |
| Cape Clear Lighthouse. I decided to take a ferry to this island and walk around for a day. Stumbled upon this decrepit lighthouse and signal station. It was built in 1818 but due to its position high up on the hill, it was often covered from fog and many ships ran aground and sank. It took nearly 40 years for them to build a new lighthouse (see my photo of the new lighthouse below somewhere) off the southwest coast of the island. Cape Clear is a simple, quiet community and is the southernmost point of Ireland. @tourismireland |
