Kilbrittain 6 miles A sign points to Kilbrittain in Co. Cork near the beach at Garrettstown. Has it been 2 years already Ryan? My Flickr account expires in February 2008 so I have a bit more time on my hands. It’s been well worth it however!
45 on the Golden Gate The posted speed limit for the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco is 45mph but good luck to anyone who managed to reach that speed! Traffic crawled the day we were there and I suspect that’s the norm. Shot from the car as we drove along. Thanks Andy for driving that […]
Looking up at Union Square A festival or competition was being held on the beautiful August day we wandered through Union Square, San Francisco. It provided ample inspiration for photos although we didn’t linger long because we wanted to see more of the city. The statue pictured is in the center of the Square and, […]

Girls on the street St. Patrick’s Day brought out a huge crowd onto the streets and here’s a group of girls we bumped into on Patrick’s Street. We were on our way to a cafe for refreshment when I spotted a bicycle chained to a pole, but it had fallen down. As is my way […]
Animal Care Society Collection Volunteers from the Animal Care Society were out in force on Saturday collecting to raise funds. We bumped into Beamish and his owner and I forgot to ask her name, but hopefully she’ll see this picture as I gave her one of my cards. Beamish was lovely and very placid, perfect […]
Alcatraz Control Center The Control Center in Alcatraz. This room is visible to all visitors to the prison and is beautifully preserved. I couldn’t find anything specific about this room but Alcatraz History has a very good site with lots of information about the prison on Alcatraz Island.
