Evening in Girvan

 Arran on the horizon, where I holidayed in 1956, 1980 approx. and in 2010!
Cycled there from Waterford + two ferries, in 1956.
Arran is situated in the Firth of Clyde.

Ready for the 'All Together Now Festival'


                                                                                                                                                                        The mast is well anchored to  a number of these huge concrete blocks.

Especially for walkers on roads around Portlaw, where some are with young children, also many elderly, some with hearing problems. Some drivers are most considerate when approaching and slow down.

Toilet by the sea!

 Spotted and checked out in Skye some years ago.  It had seating for two and was flushed out by the tides!!!  The Environmental Protection people would hardly allow that nowadays!
Now you can enjoy a similar facility in the K SIXTY SEVEN BAR & GRILL in Swords, Co. Dublin, with modern plumbing!!!

Curraghmore last Sunday - 7th May 2023

 Not much of an example. Some of the many blooming Azaleas in background. 


                                                                                                                                                              Looks like a Sequoia (Redwood), lots of which I've seen in Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon, John Muir Forest and Yosemite Valley, in California.
Have driven through a hole at the base of one, parked car on top of a fallen one, and seen many on fire!

Plenty of subjects to photograph in Curraghmore gardens.
