Beached Whale

A beached whale on Garretstown Beach last November.
A notice which is being read by the man in the foreground reads that this is a female long finned pilot whale and asks that people do not remove or bury it as it is required by researchers.
I was reluctant to post this picture in the past 2 months but after what happened in London when a whale died it spurred me to find this photo again.

This was taken on the same night as this photo and this one.

Oz Haven, Co. Cork

We went for a lovely lunch in Oz Haven in Oysterhaven yesterday afternoon. Wow, what a meal!
I started with Clonakilty black and white pudding flavoured with exotic spices, a steak for the main course, and a delicious chocolate cake with orange sauce for dessert. I’m getting hungry again just thinking about it!
Paul Greer and his staff are great and I heartily recommend a visit here! Sunday lunch is around 26 Euro per person which is very reasonable considering the quality of the food. Ring them on 021 477 0974 and book a table now! 🙂
(No, I’m not being paid for this, but Paul’s a great host and we enjoyed our meal!)

Stop Go Where to Go?

Rush-hour traffic in Cork is as bad as in any other city. I went the other way and took the back road to Blarney.

He texted me!

Shot on Patrick Street, Cork about a week ago. I was crossing the street when I spotted two girls engrossed in a mobile phone.
This is a tightly cropped section of the image which was originally shot from the hip in portrait mode.
The Oasis clothes shop is in the background, and HMV can be seen in the reflection of the window.
See the bag in that guy’s hand? It’s from the “Digital Camera” shop 🙂

Look Mommy!

At one of the butchers in the English Market a week ago. This butcher sells great honey collected from bees in Co. Cork! I spotted the joint of meat on the counter as I was leaving.
