Spotted in San Diego in 2012.

This was my entry into Blarney Photography Club’s league competition last night on the subject of transport. Unfortunately it didn’t do too well, but I still really like it.

This’ll be my image for day two of the six (not five, oops) day challenge that’s doing the rounds on Facebook right now.

King Goose

This is Emi, a resident of Carbery Cottage Guest Lodge on Sheep’s Head when we stayed there last year. He ruled the roost, where all the local ducks following him around. He even danced once, but I wasn’t lucky enough to see that, however there is video!

I can highly recommend a stay at this guest house, it’s run by lovely people who’ll really look after you, beds are comfortable, as is the sitting room and breakfasts are huge!
