Dense Storm Clouds approaching Portmagee, Co Kerry Ireland.

There is no way to see the storm clouds over my home today because it’s been raining incessantly since late yesterday. The low pressure system that was Tropical Cyclone Debbie is passing overhead.

Wish I could share the scent

In full bloom, Australia’s little known State Rose Garden of Victoria assaults to the senses. The eyes feast on a myriad of coloured blooms, each with a unique and  complex structure.  The incessant hmmmm of bees is interjected with squeals of delight and the air is heavy with rich sweet fragrances. I wish I could share the scent.

The Road Taken

Driving around Ireland  with a loose itinerary and open dates, we travelled roads often ignored by tourists. The rugged Beara Peninsula in the SW of Ireland is frequently overlooked but we were rewarded by quaint villages, rugged rocky terrain and beautiful vistas. The vista from the Healy Pass is a wondrous surprise after the  slow and winding journey up the the Caha Mountains.
