Honeymoon Cabaret

honeymoon cabaret

Yesterday we had lunch in Ammicus, in Douglas while outside the stalls of a market sold all sorts of foods and produce. The road was closed off to traffic for street performers to entertain the crowds. Unfortunately rain probably dampened the spirits of all involved. The showers were really bad!

Here’s Marc and Svetlana Buttersworth, the Honeymoon Cabaret, performing their act to a delighted crowd (with brollies). They were so entertaining, kept the crowd going, and bravely carried on through all but the worst of the showers! Go see them if you hear they’re performing near you!

Pedestrian Crossing

Pedestrian Crossing

The pedestrian crossing outside Eason (I always say “Eason’s”, but it really is “Eason”. Just like Porter’s is “Porter”. These newsagents are a picky bunch!) where young and old traverse the street in relative safety.

Yes, it’s the current header image on this blog. If you’re reading this in the future when I may have changed themes, a cropped version of this was the header when I posted this image!

Clancy’s Youghal

Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant in Youghal has apparently been closed for quite some time. I never knew the place but my wife was surprised and disappointed to see the For Sale signs outside.

I didn’t even notice the people walking along the road until I looked at the photo on my monitor!

De Lorean DMC-12

de lorean

De Lorean, the 80’s Belfast car manufacturer became a household name after their car’s appearance in Back to the Future. The name is instantly recognisable to a whole generation of people. Unfortunately the De Lorean company had already folded before those films were released.

The car above is the De Lorean DMC-12, the only model the company built. It stopped in front of us while we were having a picnic and I heard a woman across the road saying, “That’s the Back to the Future car!”
Lots more to be found on the Wikipedia page on the car.

Shot in Timoleague, Co Cork about a week ago.

PS. new theme. I missed my sidebar!
