Over the course of the week over on Instagram we publish a good wallop of photos and videos taken across our wonderful little country.
Then when Sunday hits and the reality of another week sailing over the horizon becomes reality, we take a look back at the most popular posts from the week past (you can see last weeks top photos here).
With over 50,000 likes, here’s the top 12 shots uploaded over the week in no particular order.
