Phew! What a day! Today we had a great photowalk in Cork. I hesitate to say this, but I think it was probably the most enjoyable photowalk I’ve ever been on.
We started out in the Montenotte Hotel, with tea and scones and a chat. After refreshments we headed up on the roof for a stunning view of Cork City and the Blackrock side of the suburbs. I’ve never seen into Pairc Ui Chaoimh from above like that before!
Soon after we headed down to Dillon’s Cross, and on down Summerhill. Halfway down we took a detour here where we got splendid views of the train station and Julia, the new Swansea Cork Ferry that will operate from March next year.
Snapping all the way, we headed into town and on to the Bar and Grill on the Boardwalk, pictured above. That’s my son Adam, who’s contemplating if he should go in, or stay outside where he can run around. Hungry dad won out in the end and had a delicious burger.
I had to leave after lunch, but four lucky photographers went out on the speedboat and by at least one account it was well worth doing!
I just want to thank the following for helping to make today such a success:
Did I forget anyone?
If you’re going to post photos from the walk, please tag them with “corkphotowalk”. You can find lots of photos from previous photowalks (and hopefully this one) on flickr and pix.ie when you search for that tag!
