An evening above Dunquin Pier

An evening above Dunquin Pier

Dunquin Pier at the end of the Dingle Peninsula sits below a steep grassy cliff. Last year I saw three teenage girls sitting on the edge of the cliff you can see in this photo. I got dizzy just looking at them but they weren’t in (much) danger. There’s a step below where many feet have worn away the grass.

Hank and Ray in Charlies Bar

Hank Wedel and Ray Barron in Charlies Bar last night. There wasn’t a huge crowd but the music was oh so good. So good to hear Hank and Ray play again as we haven’t been in Charlies since before the pandemic started.

Where the bikes go

Where the bikes go

Walking across a bridge in Chicago I noticed all the bikes that were thrown up on the railing next to the river. As good a place as any if there’s no decent bike parking to be had nearby.
