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!!

    Being adaptable means you can enjoy your day even when your plans are scuppered!
