Greeting to all bears,and a heartfelt thank you to all who supported our Easter-trip away in Mayo.

I,m certain we would all like to express our gratitude to Mary, Josephine & Ted for their time and effort in organising and leading the beautiful walks.

We where very fortunate with the favourable weather and the hospitality and service we received at the Twin trees and would also like to extend a thank you to the hotel & staff. It is safe to say a great time was had by all.

Not only can the bears walk and talk on the hills but we also have great entertainers.

We had jokes,songs, resatations, veno, even a few dances,

(( let the record show we did it our way)

The location was perfect for trips to the Ox mountains and the Nephin range, we also took in

The Benwee Loop

The children of Lir Loop 

The Black ditch Loop 

The Keenagh Loop.

The scenery on the walks was spectacular and it was lovely to see another part of Ireland.

Thank you to Bernie,Martin,& Bridget for the Easter eggs,and to Josephine for the lemon-drizzle cake sincere thanks to each and everyone of you for your company on the hills.
