Sunset at Drake’s Pool

We took Oscar and ourselves for a walk in Drake’s Pool last Sunday. We arranged to meet Donal and Celine there.

While the girls enjoyed a leisurely walk, us guys trailed after them making photos of everything!

Drake’s Pool is just outside Crosshaven, and is named for Sir Francis Drake.

Waltzers in Crosshaven!

If a Cork person tells you they’re going to the Merries, don’t look at them strangely. They want to go to the funfair!
The Merries in Crosshaven have been there for years, and last September myself and Jacinta went on the Waltzers. It was a slow day, and early in the evening so we were the only occupants and I’d swear the attendent made it go a lot faster than normal!
It was fun for the first minute, but after that my neck got sore, and I just wanted off! We stumbled off shortly afterwards while the attendent sat down for a smoke..
