Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

From Co Cork, Ireland.

We had a lovely scenic walk near Dunboy on the coast of the Beara Peninsula.  The view at the end was particularly satisfying.  This is actually someone’s house or something, seen in the right of the picture, because apparently the public trail goes through their land.  Such a thing would be crazy in the US.  But can you image getting this view every day?  What lucky people!

The entire country of Ireland is magical, and I could have picked just about any picture from my trip there last year.  But this stone circle, that we encountered in someone’s cow pasture, seemed to have that unearthly quality.

I used a slightly different picture of this circle for a previous photo challenge.

This tiny calf will soon grow to be as large as the other adults in the field.  We were there in July, so I’m guessing he was less than a year old.

We saw nearly as many cows as sheep while in Ireland; the Irish are very proud of their dairy industry, and with good reason.

In the Allihies area we stopped for a picnic lunch to enjoy the beautiful countryside views (as seen in a previous Photo Challenge).  The only thing that could make it even better was trying a new kind of European candy bar that we don’t have in the States: the Cadbury Double Decker.

I have a huge sweet tooth, so I love trying new candies, and this one was quite good.  I also tried a Nestle Aero and of course had some Kinder chocolate, which I was already familiar with from my time at university in Spain.

Who knows where the path of the future will take you?  Hopefully someplace as pretty as the Beara Peninsula!
