Lover’s Leap

My story Lover’s Leap, is in the November issue of Take a Break’s Fiction Feast, which should be in the shops now.

500_7188This tale was prompted by my trip to Ireland earlier this year (see, Mrs Tax Inspector, swanning about in the campervan is a perfectly legitimate business expense). We visited Loop Head, where as well as a lighthouse there’s a large chunk of rock which has broken away from the mainland. This is home to a variety of seabirds. The picture is of me attempting to get a shot of the chicks.

The birds are perfectly safe as predators (except other birds) and people can’t reach them. However there’s a legend about someone jumping across. That story and much more about the area can be found here. Gary and I have visited quite a few castles and natural features where it’s claimed people have made impossible leaps, often for love. I’m almost certain at least some of the stories were made up, so I decided to add one of my own.
