Recap Saturday in Westport; before our Sunday trip north toward Donegal-town.

The “many shades of green” quote springs to someone’s lips each day.  And the sun whips across the landscape like a shadow…wind is our companion in the high places.

The sunshine fleeting across the green hills at Kylemore Abbey.

No wonder the early Christians used the land and elements to replicate the pagan gods into their proselytizing.  The land is so varied, but always green…the sea here on the west coast is ever-present.  The new marketing program called the “Wild Atlantic Way” seems so well-suited explaining a 1,200 mile stretch of Ireland – its coast and its roads – to tourists.

And, always to punctuate the greens there are June’s flowers strewn accidentally or purposefully across the land.

Another great restaurant last night in Westport…just down the Quay from our hotel…the Idle Wall….beautiful restored facility, the help was superb, the food creative and the Irish lady owner had her story to tell of driving in the snow across Rabbit Ears Pass into Steamboat Springs, CO…she hasn’t driven since.  Small world, eh?

Here’s a harbor scene you need to see….and a woodworking triumph, too.

Notice we are going to have a sunset later, too.

Last night in Philly (well, Camden, NJ really) the Roachs headed to a Jack Johnson rock concert….and took FLAT CHIP.  Security evidently didn’t appreciate the deep meaning of the moment and confiscated my head accoording to a late night message from Justin Roach.  That’s a real compliment for a 75-year old guy….thanks, Roachs.
