My photography always lets me down.
It’s not possible for me – I don’t have the skill – to adequately convey the beauty that is Ireland.
I love this place.
I will do the best I can – and start off with my first image of the day – out my hotel bedroom window (a truck unloading fruit and veggies) – through to breakfast and black and white pudding, and the hotelier arriving with fresh eggs, through to a drive over the Connor Pass, which in no way captures the extraordinary breathtaking beauty of this way – then to a ferry trip across the Shannon River, then to the Cliffs of Moher, and finally to Doolin, and a track out of town as the sun was setting, and a bunch of cows that stared at me.
Went back and had a Guiness in a pub in Doolin, and a beautifully lyrical singer/guitarist played a special request for me – The Star of the County Down. I knew it from a track by Van Morrison and The Chieftans.
(Paddy Malone and the Chieftans did the score for a movie I did for Warners Bros.)
What an incredible day.
Tomorrow Jennifer and I are going to walk 18kms from Doolin along the Cliffs of Moher and back again. Should be amazing…
Here are today’s pics –
