More than Pretty Hills

What with an international flight, jet lag, a head cold, and a wedding, this past week has not been good for blogging.

Here, instead, are some scenes of Ireland that give an idea of its charms over-and-above green rolling hills. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Spectacular photos! Incredible pastoral settings.
    I have not been to Ireland. I have been in England, Scotland and Wales but not Ireland.

    Dunfanaghy? Marble Hill? Muckish? Lough Swilly? My Irish relatives had a cottage somewhere along there. She was from Canada, before she married into the clan, so she called the cottage Muskoka. I have happy memories of bathing in the waters of Lough Swilly when the tide came sweeping in over the sun-soaked sands and warmed the water enough to make the North Atlantic tolerable!

      Jim T – Yes, that water would want some warming! Glad to remind you of your youth.

  3. Ahhhh, I enjoyed a quick taste of the country. I fond remember my week there in 2018 with the choir tour.

    When Mom and I toured Ireland (along with the remainder of the Isles) what I came away with was a new and different definition of the colour green. I hadn’t observed greens like that before or since. Annual rainfall may have had some influence. Beautiful photos Isabel, I expect nothing less from you.

    Wales countryside is a watercolour needing a frame — anywhere to look. Suspect Ireland is like that. Lucky Isabel to be there. It is still April here in Canada — that 3-month month… 😀 (But I’ve endured worse.)

      Barbara – “A watercolour needing a frame.” Yes, that captures it pretty (hah) well.
