So Long and Thanks for All the Fish

Quite often I used to see sea gulls waiting patiently for lunch in front of the Fisherman @ the Galway Shopping Center, Headford road, Galway. Well, they might not have been the same ones every time but there was always an expectant audience camping on the cars and vans around.  I wonder if the owners…

My New Friend

The First day I saw him,  he was in the middle of the field, about 15- 20 meters away and he didn’t even look at me, even though I paused and said hi.  On my way back, nine hours later, he was still there. I said hi, he just glanced at me and continued grazing….

After Storm Hector

I wonder what’s going on this year?! We were having it so good the last few weeks and then overnight,  sudden and abrupt end to our gorgeous premature summer.   We had quite and eventful winter, a good selection of hurricanes, frozen pipes, no water and so on..   Yesterday was lovely and sunny today trampolines are…

The Gorgeous Green

By this time of the year I am starved for green and colour in my life.  Finally, it is happening. No matter where you look it’s like a jungle bushy, fluffy, exploding with life, textures, shapes and hundreds shades of green. Honestly, I was walking the dogs early this morning, staring at the countryside around…

BLUE SKIES OVER SPANISH ARCH

Finally! After a hard winter we get what we patiently deserve! Maybe even a bit too much but don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, just not used to the heat and the sun anymore. It is easy to forget about it  means  during the constant rain and thick cloud cover. At last, here…

Boxers in the Bogs

I had the most amazing walk today in the bogs. I love when there is fog hugging the hills and bogs of Connemara. Everything is covered with a blanket of stillness and peace. It’s hushed, quiet and empty everywhere. Because it’s still early and people are indoors  having breakfast and preparing for the day. Me,…

Happy St Patrick’s day

OK, today is St. Patrick’s day and everyone in Ireland is getting blasted. Well, maybe not yet, the parades are still on but later, when they are finished and the pubs are open, all hell will break loose!! For some weird reason I am all alone in the house with the dogs. Everyone is busy…

Snowy Ireland

I think it will take a while for Ireland to get back to normal after Storm Emma.   The snow could be gone for now but it is still very cold and patches of dirty whiteness are still visible everywhere. A lot of people suffered in many ways, local businesses had to close, suppliers did not…

The Snow Monster called Emma

I think that the Snowy Winter of 2018 is turning into the Winter Disaster of 2018. In all my years here in Ireland, Honestly I have never experienced such cold. The whole of Europe is in the freezing grip of the ice monster called Storm Emma. There is a Red  Alert for the last 24…
