Bogdan the ship is no longer in Cork. It got patched up here and sailed on its way.
another storm was mounting last Saturday and this lone kite surfer was making the best of it by the Garrylucas beach in Garretstown. it is difficult to judge, but I think he was easily reaching the heights of 10 metres above the water. had I somehow happened to be in his place and lifted like that, I would undoubtedly soil my wetsuit. him instead, he was just flying there composedly over the ocean.
you can say quite a few things about the weather in Ireland this winter, but the word "boring" would not be one of them. this is how Mizen Head looked today, with waves over 10 metres high and winds howling accordingly.
Cork City Hall looking rather good. Illuminated in Cork colours and all.
from an early morning trip to Passage West on the very first Monday of 2014. rain only made it nicer!
i have neglected my blog and i'm not happy about it, as i like my blog. so back to it. this rather cheesy photo was taken from my bedroom window today, at 16:52. which is about 20 minutes after sunset.
all the best in 2014 to whomever happens to visit here!
yesterday I visited my favourite Fitton Street East again. things are still happening there, good things with light and colours and reflections. this picture is an obvious continuation of this one here.
