On an Irish Beach

On the beach

Getting their feet wet!

washed up after the storm

Anyone who lives in Ireland, or who has visited, knows that the weather can change – very suddenly!  As I write this the wind is howling outside and the rain is lashing against the windows.  As a contrast, these photos were taken this morning, at Harbour View near Kilbrittain, west Cork.    We were on our way back from a wedding in Rosscarbery, and even though I was feeling a bit under the weather delicate (maybe from the dancing /drinking till the early hours) the walk along the beach, watching the horses,and a few people walking their dogs,  soon brightened up the day!   There was even a bench conveniently close by to have a rest and admire the view.

A seat to enjoy the view

    Did you call into The Pink for a coffee? You do know that you were in my neck of the Woods?

    Wonderful shots of the horses and sea. I love Ireland, but when I expressed a desire to live there to a friend who is from there, he immediately said, “No, don”t. The weather is fierce. Just go for a vacation.” One day, I might go back for another visit.
