Beach Baby, Beach Baby

Sunrise out my bedroom window today............................How, could you not enjoy the day ahead if this is the way it begins?

To be fair, the weather here is just not as bad as everyone thinks. I have to say it does rain a lot, almost every day in fact, HOWEVER, when it is nice (or FINE as they say here) it is gorgeous. I suppose that is why people like to live here.
I have a few shots of recent walks we have went on over the last week and you will notice the skies are blue and we are not wearing snow boots or rain coats.
The Autumn skies in Ireland are probably some of the best in the world. Amazing sunrise (Really really amazing) and as there is a famous song titled 'watch the sun go down on Galway Bay' it really is worth stopping everything you are doing to do just that.

I threw in this photo of the wee ones because I thought they looked so darn cute and I can never get enough of it and hope you feel the same. Rory has perfected her little side ward glances at the camera to a fine art and we know she is a posing queen. She is teaching Jack a few things about the camera too. Pity he was distracted by something at the park and not focusing on me!!
This is a photo of Renville Bay where we walk frequently. It is a lovely and tiny little bay about 8 miles outside the city. Very quiet and full of mussels!!
Granny and the kids out shell seeking. Another sunny day on the auld sod.
Here they are standing on an old fishing boat called a 'currach'. If you look in the background you will see a glimpse of Tyrone House (the castle). A shame it is in ruins but a very cool place. Follow the link for photos of this and look for the next blog as we are going over for a visit later this week. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcosgrave/sets/72157594247077465/

That is all the WiseWords for today,

It all looks so good Mona...you guys always take such good pics...wish I did as well as you. I really do need to start taking more pics and let more people know what is going on in my life. Sounds great as I type, lets see if I actually come through...anyhow, you all look so great and I am glad that everything is going well.

Much love and hugs! Eric
