RAIN – a Photo Essay!

This is Ireland… here it rains. If you plan to only be outdoors when the sun shines you’re gonna loose all sense of life’s purpose, not to mention your mind, as cabin fever overtakes your senses! So… to prove my point I’m going to show you a series of photos I took just to prove there is a great outdoors. We took a drive down to the Hook Lighthouse for a look-see. We were parked, looking at the wild sea, whipped up by the driving wind… and rain! Only moments after we’d parked I noticed a blue hooded lad up to something, not more than ten meters away…

He dug in his backpack… pulling out cans. Cans of what… I wanted to know?

I couldn’t resist leaving the warmth and comfort of the car… sans rain gear or umbrella… I had to get a closer look! Here’s proof… my good lady snapping away… capturing the moment I captured the moment!

There you have it… mystery solved. He’s snapping away in preparation of a beer promotion…

So… here’s the result… a few pics of the fella and his beers… and the Hook Lighthouse.

My reward? Yep! The lad paid me in kind for promising him some photos! Yes, I kept my promise and sent on most of these. I’ll add… I enjoyed the two cans… the pint I still have… for another occasion!

Thanks to Ailsa for the challenge… I’m tempted to show you a few more rain sodden pics taken later on in the trip…
