How to send flowers to ladies

Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.

While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!

No. 20, Bantry

I walked around Bantry Town a bit snapping the local streets and this house appealed to me. I think I saw it in b/w and the lovely texture of the walls.

It could also have been the hill and I wanted a small break from pushing the buggy around too of course.

The Lough Daffodils

We walked around The Lough and wandered over to the daffodils growing by the footpath at one of the lake. That’s Sean Murphy in the background as he preps some of his equipment to take a shot.

Probably my last photo from the Lough Photowalk!

Swans on The Lough

Swans swim past on The Lough in Cork City. This was one of the first photos I took at the recent photowalk there. Despite the clear blue sky and lovely light it was quite cold with a biting wind!

Big smile for the Parade!

I think it’s safe to say this was the biggest smile of St. Patrick’s Day Parade 2008 for me. Nobody in the crowd was smiling anyway. They were all too squashed in or straining to see over the heads of those in front.

I can see the parade!

Some people go to all lengths to watch the St. Patrick’s Day Parade as these kids show.

Congrats to my friends John and Ann on the birth of their son Caelin yesterday. You’re lives are going to change *so much* but you’re going to have a great time with the little guy!

PS. Just upgraded almost all my blogs to WP 2.5, please leave a comment if you notice anything odd!
