When the sun shines in Ireland...

It is heaven on earth. I am sure I have said it all before but amuse me, won't you? There really is something special that happens on this green isle when the sun shines. The traffic jams to Brittas Bay are horrendous, so don't do that, instead head out for a walk up the Dublin mountain and sit on the rocks overlooking the sea and the land below. On your walk up every person who passes you by will nod and smile and say hello, hi, hey or some form of greeting they particularly like. You will pass people with dogs, people bending over the hedgerows filling pales with black berries (wish I could say big fat blackberries but they are not genetically modified up there) and marvel at the way the light filters through the forest bits of your walk. Or get up early and head for the beach or go further afield to Wexford if you like....just DO NOT stay home and do the chores!
I reckon that in SA we get so used to our fabulous weather that we take it for granted, here a sunny day is a gift, a thing to enjoy and boy oh boy we do.

I have to smile... we treasure our overcast days here. Isn't it funny how different things are all over the world? Love and hugs.

Roelie ran the Dingle marathon on the weekend and in all the pics you can see the sun shining - looked lovely.

I can't go outside. If I go outside it means I have to cut the hedge!

Great news is that it's supposed to hang around all week!! Woot!

It seems we need to wait for the next sunny day before we hear from you...
