A day for outdoors
« on: April 16, 2012 »

Yesterday was one of them awesome days when nothing was planned but I done so much.  Even managed to watch the F1 and UCI XC MTB world cup yet spent most of the day outdoors.

Belfast Hills on the MTB in the morning and a nice walk through some of the NT south belfast areas. Why describe it when the pictures can tell the story.

If I had tried planning it I would have said na I can't do all that today. It was just one of them super days and as you say the unplanned always seem to turn out better.

Cheers btw!

I like number 5 looking towards your hunting ground the mournes but the iPhone doesn't do the actual view full justice.

Liam, the next orienteering event this year is down your way too if you want another go. I've just started this year and love it.

Our next weekend orienteering event is on Saturday 28th April at Slievenagore. It's a NI Series so full range of courses will be available. We'll be parking in the main Silent Valley car park, with registration from 11 and starts from 11.30 till 1.
