hello flickr daarlings!

we're home after our short summer break. 'twas thrilling while it lasted, i must say.

highs and lows included:

~the sudden tragic jamming of my EFS 17-85mm lens at an obstinate 30-ish mm. at least it's still focusing. but i can hear a tiny ball-bearing rattling around in there and methinks this does not bode well.

~spending a few days in Kilkenny, enjoying the castle, the pints, the watershed, the Arts Festival, the full Irish breakfasts and the general "craic".

~travelling the scenic route from Kilkenny through Waterford to Youghal in County Cork.

~staying at a big old creaky hotel on the seafront in Youghal. i kept expecting an Agatha Christie murder mystery to unfold before my very eyes.

~Ardmore and our boat trip along the coast of Youghal and up the River Blackwater.

~the friendly locals, the kids fishing off the pier, the endless beach, the freezing waters of the Irish sea, the smell of seaweed wafting through our enormous hotel room windows, the taste of gin&tonic drunk sitting in the windowseat by the moonlight with J whilst listening to our boys' heavy sleeping sighs.

~realising yet again that a decent eatery is virtually impossible to find on this beautiful emerald isle. particularly if value for money is something that you care about in the least. hence the plentiful picnics and inventive meals created throughout our trip.

~Whiting Bay and its secluded beauty, our mouths falling open as we witness a pair of witless tourists drive their rented car onto the sand and get stuck. with the tide coming in rapidly. we tried to help but it was useless. within minutes the car was surrounded by water. our kids found it all highly amusing.

~finding out that John Houston's Moby Dick was filmed in Youghal and watching the eyes of the locals light up as they told us about their mother, sister, grandfather having appeared as extras in the film, rubbed shoulders with Gregory Peck... the highlight of their youth.

~throwing caution to the wind and deciding to extend our trip by an extra day, returning to Kilkenny for one last day of freedom, reluctant to return to our home, unwilling to face a return to routine, an end to this lovely adventure.

~our car breaking down on the motorway just outside Dublin on our way home. go on, picture the scene: road rescue, tow truck, taxi, three kids, a pile of suitcases and car full of toys, snacks and all manner of road trip paraphernalia. the clutch is gone (no gears, no power). our mechanic is on holiday. all that remains now is to find out whether the repair is worth doing... or if she'll end up on the scrap heap, too old now to justify the expense :(

Like I said, highs and lows. Our holiday certainly went out with a bang. But that didn't dampen our spirits, which I suspect are still out of synch, in summer mode, incapable of allowing minor misfortunes to jitter those nerves. Maybe for fear that once poked, like a hornet's nest, those nerves might just stir up something they cannot appease. Perhaps ever!

Anyway. All I really wanted to say is, hi. I'm back. I hope you're well. I've missed my Flickr fixes muchly. And I'm looking forward to sliding back into this colourful world of lovely.

#2 [Peace Boat & Speed Boat!]

Toys for big boys.

With the cruise ship "Oceanic" moored on in Dublin Port, berth Ocean Pier 33, a more powerful pleasure boat races past. The wash from this boat actually washed up over the marina and rocked all other boats out of their gentle bobbing rhytm
