Yesterday there was a bit of magic in the air! IA few day’s ago I’d dragged a fishing rod out of the hot-press. Yes… the time had come to get into action. I mean… I’ve committed to some fishing for my 17 for seventeen. Then, hadn’t I better start? The thing is… I haven’t cast a line into the sea since arriving in Ireland… almost 17 years ago. I now have grand-kids asking quite regularly when the rods are going to be used. Yep… they know I’ve got them!
So, the magic? We went down to The Cove… I’d long wanted to cast a line off the short stone pier. That’s just what I did! And so much more! I sat on a flat rock and enjoyed the weather all around. It even spat on me occasionally but I was prepared. The trusted umbrella was there for an emergency! The good lady went off to do a bit of shopping and I manfully carried on!
By the time she returned the clouds had drifted away and we were blessed with warmth on the backs. So, not long after she joined me, we packed up to take a stroll on the almost deserted beach… and then we chased butterflies… within 10 meters of the selfsame beach! You can’t really believe just how these simple moments can invigorate! Unspoilt magic… just because we chose to go down to the beach for a few hours! OH, if you’re wondering… I caught a crab! Whooppee!!
Happy Monday!! May your week begin smoothly and end even smoothly-ier
