Yellow and Blue

Yellow and Blue

We’ve seen a lot of the Ukraine flag in the last few months following the invasion of that country by Russia. Before that I didn’t realise the wall facing the Centra in Dingle had the same colours. Looking the worse for wear and not the right shades of course.

The Lispole Viaduct

The Lispole Viaduct

If you’ve been to Dingle you’ve probably passed through the village of Lispole. It’s on that long fairly straight road where the speed limit is 60km/h. There are lovely views from the top of the hill overlooking the village and this viaduct sits behind the petrol station at the bottom of the village.

I’d seen the viaduct many times over the years but (I think) never stopped to photograph it until 2 weeks ago. According to a nearby sign it was part of the Dingle – Tralee railway line which ran from 1891 to 1953. An important part of the long community so long ago.

Swing around away up high

Swing around away up high

The Star Flyer brings people 40m up before swinging them around. Exciting stuff, but I declined. Bumpers and Waltzers were enough for me. 馃檪

B贸thar an Uisce

B贸thar an Uisce

B贸thar an Uisce, or River Lane, in Dingle is on a junction with Dykegate Street where my favourite caf茅 in the town sits. Thyme Out Caf茅 & Delicatessen (Google Maps) is in a lovely old building serving vegetarian and vegan food. Brenda makes an amazing breakfast burrito, and her delux baguette is delicious! Yes, of course I took photos. I’ll share them some day but if you’re in Dingle make sure to visit Thyme Out!

The Sweet Pea Cat

The Sweet Pea Cat

I’m 99% certain I took a photo of this cat a few years ago and published it here but I cannot find it. The original photo was shot as we walked past at night and the cat was asleep in the window, just above the painting on the wall so it’s memorable. If I find it, I’ll link it here!

Dingle, July 2021.

Edit in September 2021, his name is Angel! Kieren Frost took a wonderful photo of him too.

Around And Around We Go

Around And Around We Go

The Spin City Funfair visits Dingle during the summer months and features the “Star Flyer” where participants are raised about 40m into the air before twirling them around and and around. No way will you get me on something like that! I’ll happily take photos of it though.

Tied up at Dingle Harbour

Tied up at Dingle Harbour

Moments after the sun set over the Dingle Peninsula I went for a walk and captured this HDR panorama of Dingle Harbour from the pier there. The sky was mostly clear but there was a well placed cloud sitting just above the hills to catch the light of the already disappeared sun.
