WANDERING AROUND THE ISLAND

This was another beautiful day in Ireland. I arrived at about 7am and had the day to drive around and check out the sites. It’s amazing how many cool places there are to check out on this tiny island. I haven’t even

TODAY’S PHOTO – DROMOLAND CASTLE

This castle is located in County Clare Ireland. On wikepedia it says it was originally constructed in the 15th or 16th century with the present state of it finished in 1835. It is surrounded by a beautiful golf course along with forests land.

This was 3 shots combined in Photomatix and touched up in PS.

A DAY IN LONDON TOWN

After spending a few days out in Wales we planned to have one day in London before hopping on another plane to Germany. The day was gorgeous and pretty warm. We left early morning to drive back to the Heathrow airport to drop our car off and check into our hotel to drop our multitude of baggage off. Next we hopped on the Tube downtown and got off at the Tower Station. Did a bit of walking around and checking out the sites before hopping on a Thames ferry to the London Eye for a scenic ride.

TODAY’S PHOTO – I SPY THE LONDON EYE

This thing is cool! Well, it was pretty warm inside I have to admit, but the views are breathtaking and awesome. You can literally see for miles and can many landmarks are within view. Just below right you can see the Houses of Parliament and behind that in the distance is the Battersea Power Station. This is not your ordinary Ferris wheel. It’s huge and high, and the ride around once takes about 30 minutes. Well worth the time if you have it. I do suggest prebooking a ‘flight’, as they call it, to save from standing in line for several hours.

Enjoy!

WORKING IN THE DARK

I figured I’d get a little work done today in the afternoon. The power to the building was supposed to be out until about 2pm and when I showed up at 3:15, guess what? No Power! Fortunately I found one outlet that had power to it so I could get a bit of work done but no lighting. It’s lonely enough working here by myself, but with no lights on it’s even more so. Got my tunes going though so that makes it a bit better.

TODAY’S PHOTO – THE SEATTLE SKY LINE

Last year August we went on an Alaskan cruise which left from Seattle. I took this photo after we boarded the ship and was walking around to see what the views looked like of the city before we pulled out of port. I had gone around the ship taking photos before it was inundated with swarms of people everywhere. I was able to get a few great shots. Make sure to click on this shot to see the large size. I think it came out pretty nice. Enjoy!

BOATS WAITING FOR THEIR TURN

TODAY’S PHOTO – SMALL IRISH HARBOR

Well, again here is a shot from Liscannor, Ireland. This is a little fishing village that if you blink you’d miss it. The weather was amazing and I was able to walk around the harbor and check out the beauty of the area. I happened to walk out towards the water when I remember hearing a few people getting excited. I quickly hustled over to where they were all looking to see a pod of dolphins off shore. They were swimming pretty quickly in the bay and jumping out of the water. Was an amazing sight!

IRELAND ON THE MIND

TODAY’S PHOTO – AN OLD IRISH FISHING RV

A few years ago I arrived at the Shannon airport on the west side of Ireland to a low cloud bank and figured I’d have to cruise around in some gloomy weather. By the time I got out of the airport and had gotten to my rental care the clouds were breaking and blue sky was peeking it’s head through. A few hours later it turned into an amazing day! Not a cloud in the sky, which of course meant no rain that day.

I decided to drive out towards the Cliffs of Moher and passed through this tiny fishing village call Liscannor. I parked my car and started walking around this awesome little harbor and came across this old looking RV that seemed to be some sort of fishing storage.
