How could I not do a post about Ireland’s inland waterways? I’ve been fascinated by he canals and barges ever since arriving in Ireland. Mostly though, I’ve been warmly welcomed by Bargees! I’ve learned so much from them so why not remind you again of some of the fun and games I’ve shared… on and off the water!
Happy Monday… may your day’s load be light… may your fun be normal… well, sort of!
PS – Thanks to the HBA for all the fun they’ve shared with me!
PPS – I have many canal tales. Do visit the canal pages listed below the header above… you may have fun!

We went storm hunting yesterday afternoon. GDA went along but to his credit… clouds and water didn’t scare him off. The beach in the sunshine was all a little lad needed to play in the sand. Until nanny called… “here comes the water!”

I was going to tell you all about the legacy and heritage left by one of Ireland’s greatest soldiers and statesmen. Only thing, the man who filled all these roles, did it for the Brits. But… he still merits a mention… except, I walked past this allium and paused. I’m afraid the 1st Duke of Wellington will have to wait for a day or two longer to get his mention.
Happy Friday… may your day be filled with joy and pleasure!
