Pepper #1

Going to the shops for groceries these past couple of months has been a slow process at times. The upside is that in the long wait, some interesting things have caught my eye. I found this lovely item in the dark depths of a tiny grocery shop nearby, and once home, I positioned it with care in the late afternoon sun.

My Facebook people weren’t overly impressed:

Daughter: What the hell is that? (😂😂)

Sister: A misshapen pepper? (👍🏻)

Brother: A pepperwrongi (😂😂)

Friend: I thought it was a puppy (😲)

Daughter: It looked like a person from here (😂)

Me: It’s me, how I felt today 😜😂 (🤣🤣🤣)

Daughter: Well who hasn’t felt like a misshapen pepperwrongi puppy person sometime in their life! (😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 😂 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻)

Not a great time for landscape trips, but a good enough time for other things.

A peek from the roadside

My three days in Ballintoy sped by, leaving no time to explore the beaches further along the coast. Just a sneak peek from the roadside…

I’d got drenched the evening before here, but I was back, a bit earlier. The place is mesmerising._94A1114

Evening #1 at Giant’s Causeway

You can’t come here without wondering about Fionn mac Cumhaill at some point. For some he’s just a legend. For others he is legend, and is still around here somewhere, sleeping, waiting.
