If you see the Guinness (damm good pint btw) you will surely see the spare tire of Curtis. Yep, that’s becoming a relic of another time, accompanied by the other lonely relic of free time for anything. Nola’s school is a 2 minute walk down the street from the crib. Finny goes to the naionra, which is the preschool. That’s a different story by about 2.5-3 miles. And yes…….I walk it…….sometimes twice daily. It’s a great trek up the main drag to Baile An tSagairt (home of the priest) if you’re looking at a google map. If the weather permits it it’s transcendent.
It’s safe to say that there’s nothing too special about walking 10-12 miles a day for a people who regard the power walk as the new night out on the town. It was explained to me that when the recession hit people here would be at least mentally and physically fit enough to deal with whatever came their way and seeing as there’s no better use of time and endorphin management than a power walk it’s easy to find a lot of very healthy people throwing down and going hard on the bricks. That’s a 62 word sentence. I’m done.
