Ireland Windows

A few years ago we traveled to Ireland on vacation. While there we did all the normal sites that visitors go to but we also took in a few local spots for dinner. One evening we stopped by J.W. Sweetman’s for the Brewmaster dinner menu. The food and atmosphere was awesome and the view from our table by the window was gorgeous.

O'Brien's Tower of the Cliffs of Moher, in County Clare, Ireland

O’Brien’s Tower of the Cliffs of Moher, in County Clare, Ireland – Photo was taken during our visit in 2013

When visiting the Cliffs of Moher I almost overlooked the structure across the way. The O’Brien’s Tower is at the highest point along the cliffs. Built as an observation tower during the Victorian age for tourists.

Floral Friday – 4

These colorful petunia flowers were photographed while we were visiting the city of Cobh in Cork County Ireland. I’m not sure if this was taken before or after I fell into the street. Yes, I stepped off the curb, tripped and fell face first into the street. (Disclaimer: Guinness was not a factor during this incident.) Landing on my knee first was very painful, but I survived the embarrassment. Several people ran to my assistance, one even stopped his car and came over to help me up and to make sure I was OK. A waitress from the pub across the street came over to see if she could do anything. I’ve not experienced that much concern from strangers since. In Ireland the people were so friendly! If this fall had happened here in the states I would have been on my own. Anyways…. I’ve loved this photo ever since.
