Beached Whale

A beached whale on Garretstown Beach last November.
A notice which is being read by the man in the foreground reads that this is a female long finned pilot whale and asks that people do not remove or bury it as it is required by researchers.
I was reluctant to post this picture in the past 2 months but after what happened in London when a whale died it spurred me to find this photo again.

This was taken on the same night as this photo and this one.

Oz Haven, Co. Cork

We went for a lovely lunch in Oz Haven in Oysterhaven yesterday afternoon. Wow, what a meal!
I started with Clonakilty black and white pudding flavoured with exotic spices, a steak for the main course, and a delicious chocolate cake with orange sauce for dessert. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it!
Paul Greer and his staff are great and I heartily recommend a visit here! Sunday lunch is around 26 Euro per person which is very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Ring them on 021 477 0974 and book a table now! :)
(No, I’m not being paid for this, but Paul’s a great host and we enjoyed our meal!)
