Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge : Week 34

I came across this bar sign in Castletownbere in West Cork a few days ago, and thought it would be ideal for Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge, what do you think?

Weekly Photo Challenge : Edge

My photo was taken yesterday, in lovely Glengarriff in West Cork, looking across at Garnish Island  (in the centre of the picture) which is a small island full of exotic plants and shrubs, warmed by the Gulf Stream which helps to create a micro climate for all these unusual plants.

We had plans as we left Cork yesterday morning – stay in a nice B& B, which was fabulous, take a trip on the ferry to Garnish to explore the gardens and the newly restored house, and maybe fit in a round of golf!   Unfortunately, the weather was against us, and you can see from the photo, that we were just on the edge of a major downpour.   Back to the cosy Jim’s Coffee House for some more coffee and cake instead!    The day wasn’t entirely wasted!!

Stephen's Green Hibernian Clun

Reflections upon reflections

This mirror over the fireplace is in a very large room, with an exact replica at the other end of the room, so that when you look in the mirror you see many more mirrors, this is called an infinity mirror.  I am not sure how many mirrors can be seen, but I think it is at least seven.
