With the time and weather changing, Ireland is a much colder, darker place and I'm still adjusting to it. With only about 9 hours of daylight, it gets harder to good photos (plus everything else I need to do in the daylight), but I'll get there. Or, maybe it's time to focus on some good night shots! But, for this week, here is a reflection of a weeping willow in the canal.
It's feeling and looking like fall here in Ireland. I went on a jog to Herbert Park (one of my favorites that I used to live by). The ducklings I used to watch have all grown up, but on this day, a Blue Heron was perched on the side of the pond surrounded by falling leaves.
It might be (almost) fall, but the flowers are still blooming. Loving this colorful touch of nature vs. the harsh metal fence.
We went on another great day trip this weekend. This time on a tour through Dún Laoghaire, Dalkey, and Killiney. Dún Laoghaire was a beautiful seaside town, we took a tour of a castle in Dalkey and had a great walk to Killiney including this amazing view.
... One of my favorites is the grand front door surrounded by flowers and vines. So far we've seen wisteria, long stem red roses, and a few shades of pink flowers bloom.
Day #320 We explored more of Marina del Rey today and walked all along the beach, south to the canal, walked along that and back up through some neighborhoods and these bird of paradise flowers caught my eye.
Day # 310 Sometimes the most unexpected photo ops turn out to the be best. It's not too often you see a cactus being transported on the back of a truck... well, at least I don't anyway.
Day # 306 Our first stop on the drive to California was to see Andy's parents in Meade, KS. They took part of the day off today and we had a nice picnic at the lake.
