So far the Irish summer has been mostly a lot of this

EDIT: I see now that the video got corrupted while uploading so I've replaced it with a working version. …


But there have been a few (damn few ๐Ÿ™„ ) days when a person would feel like leaving the bed house.

Way back in April (which is really more spring isn't it? :whistle: ) it was down to Kilmore Quay in Wexford.

The big attraction was the Guillemot lightship, which had been turned into a maritime museum.

Unfortunately, the ship had been vandalized, deemed no longer safe, and cut up for scrap. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Also unfortunately, the websites listing this attraction had not been updated to reflect this.

But still, had a nice lunch, a stroll along the strand, and a look at the boats in the harbour. So it wasn't a complete loss.

Next up was the MCVI show in May

Naturally there were plenty of vehicle to look at.

But there were also several re-enactors who were fully kitted out in period uniforms.

And finally on the June Bank holiday it was the cliff walk in Ardmore, Co. Waterford.

And absolutely perfect day – bright sunshine to keep you warm, a breeze to cool you off, and gorgeous scenery.

Armore has a couple of claims to fame, first being the site of Saint Declan's monastery. So there are numerous religious ruins.

Another is the wreck of The Samson, a crane barge the ran aground on the foot of the cliffs.

And another gallery full of photos here. http://my.opera.com/Mickeyjoe-Irl/albums/show.dml?id=11974742

Today (Sunday) was also a pretty good day, though there was reason to stay at home. (More on that later.) Tomorrow isn't looking too bad either….

But after that the rains return. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
