Wordless Wednesday : Climb Every Mountain!

Daily Prompt : Sky

Summer’s here, and that means (most of the time) blue skies and long evenings.   I think that’s not the case in a lot of Europe at the moment though, where it seems to be rain, rain and more rain.

Here are a few blue skies from our recent travels in Greece

Nothing moving, so it must be siesta time.

Sometimes a cloud or two appears in the sky

Sometimes a cloud or two appears in the sky, maybe it’s time to secure the crockery!!

Color Your World : Mango Tango

The streets of Riva del Garda

I love this shade of orange/mango and it is ideal for today’s Crayola colour of Mango Tango.   The picture was taken in one of the narrow streets off the square in Riva del Garda, in Italy.    It’s very appealing to be sitting sipping a coffee and looking out at the Lake, who wants to join me?

Whale Watching in West Cork

During the last week in August in Ireland we have been celebrating National Heritage Week, and we have been taking full advantage of the many activities taking place, a lot of them free, and visiting places that are not usually open to the public.

One such place that we visited was the lighthouse at Galley Head, to do some whale watching.    It was a beautiful sunny Sunday when we travelled the hour or so to Galley Head, beyond Clonakilty.    The whale watching took place in the grounds of the lighthouse, and was organised by the Irish Whale and Dolphin Group (IWDG), who gave a talk on the different varieties of whales and dolphins that can be seen in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Ireland.

There were also Bird Watching Groups at the event, as large groups of birds usually follow the whales and dolphins, to take advantage of the copious amounts of fish and plankton disturbed by these huge mammals, so if ever you see large groups of birds circling over the water, it could be that there are whales nearby!

And did we see many whales…..not even one!    They were playing hard to get, I think!

We did have a lovely day though, and managed to get a few more interesting photos on our walk to the lighthouse

Red boats stand out, especially against the grey stonework and the blue, blue sea, in Valletta Harbour, Malta.

And these red poppies are just wonderful, and remind me of summer heat.
