Foreshadow… continued…

On Saturday afternoon Junior Son and I went for a short walk along the Royal Canal. I’ve been itching for a walk… only, I’m usually so weary and sore at the end of the working day that there’s not really much in the way of resolve or reserves remaining. Saturday afternoon we decided that walk it will be. I have to test my limits now that the side effects of the Statins are easing.

We left the village around 16h45, chatting and stopping for the odd photograph. However, the more I turned to look back toward the town the more I realised we’d have to keep a steady pace if we wanted to get to the shelter of our destination at the North Kildare Cricket Club before the storm broke. Every rearward glance reminded me of Sunday’s post which I’d already prepared earlier because the rest of the weekend was planned to be quite hectic.

Foreshaddowed or what?? That storm caught up later. Kilcock, Ireland on an August afternoon... This is a view looking back toward the town, taken just before 17h00. I think you’ll agree with me that there is most definitely a serious note of foreshadowing to be witnessed when looking at those clouds. These views tempted me to change Sunday’s post but because of the lack of time I though better of it. We were planning a braai (bbq) for Saturday evening and both Sunday and Monday were days out at cricket so rather not mess with a post already completed.

However, the views merited a viewing, hence another foreshadowing experience. Today’s post will end on a happier note… well, from a vista point of view. The braai went well but at one point the rain threatened. Luckily the shower was short and sharp with most of the rain passing us by. Talking of rain, earlier the afternoon, while we were walking the canal bank, we were lucky to make the shelter at the club. Boy, when that storm arrived it lashed!

I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say it can only be a pleasure to be outside looking after the sizzling steaks while being blessed by scintillating views. It’s not often that sunlight and water droplets add such a backdrop to an evening sky. It was truly a pleasure to watch it all unfold but then as the old saying goes, unfortunately all good things seem to come to an end… often too soon!
