A video ku from the Mournes

The last time I was out for a drive with my family before lockdown was on Mothers Day, March 22nd. My husband drove my daughter and me from Warrenpoint through the village of Rostrevor and when he took this road alongside the Mourne Mountains, the familiar scenery brought back lots of happy memories.  I took some video footage, added the haiku and submitted it to Poetry Pea TV feature Moments where it was featured a few days ago.

My grandmother used to take us for drives around these back roads when we were young, as did my father. He called these Saturday morning outings ‘mystery tours’ and my siblings and I looked forward to them so much.

This area is great for walking and hiking. Here is a link to information on the different routes.

  1. Those childhood drives were part of my growing up too. Through the Mournes with a tartan blanket in the car boot – and flasks of tea, egg and onion sandwiches!
