From a front door

This is the view from someone’s front door! I knocked and no one was in, so as I was writing a note to put through the door I turned round and thought ‘wow’! O.K., on the left you can see Fota Island and then Great Island beyond. On the right you have the edge of Little Island in the middle and then beyond looks towards Passage West. Again on the left you can just make out the railway line that goes from Cork via Fota to Cobh and then the ugly remains of the old Fertilizer manufacturing plant in the middle – and here concludes our short tour of the north-west of Cork Harbour area!

Back in the land of the living…

Did I miss something?! Two days before Christmas Day was a terrible time to be flattened by the ‘flu! Somehow I got through all the services standing upright – though I doubt anyone noticed any difference ;-)

The above photo was taken three days ago from Great Island looking across to Passage West…

A very HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.
