Happy Saint Patrick Day!

Evening View of Dublin from J.W. Sweetman

Here’s some photos I put together from our trip to Ireland in 2013! If you ever have the chance to go, GO!  It’s one place I do hope to visit again.  The most friendly people in the world live there!  Where would you rather be?  What will you be doing today to celebrate?  Green beer?  Cook up some shepard’s pie or Dublin coddle?  Let me know and thanks for visiting.

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.
