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!!
