Friday and this weekend is the last one of June, I plan to do some long river walks with our Dog Molly ….

What ever you do this weekend I hope you have a great time and get to escape for a while, have a great weekend !!!

The River

Catherine, Liverpool

It starts at a source as a little trickle

Then flows down the mountain,

Following a steep and narrow path.

As it rushes down it is joined by many other tributaries,

Changing it from a small, shallow stream

To a big, deep river

The water is clear and unpolluted,

Icy blue and sparkling

But always icy cold too.

It crashes as it flows,

Forming bubbling foam

That fills the air with cold white spray.

River Suir Tipperary 02

As the current pushes it on, it erodes away the rocks,

Leaving small, smooth banks

For it to easily pass by.

It deepens and widens as it runs down the mountain,

Soon entering a valley

With the sea in view.

It finally comes to its end,

An estuary leading into the sea

Ending its long journey from the mountain.

But it will start its journey again

When the sun evaporates it from the sea

And drops it down as rain.

Three Poems all with the title “Small town”

Small Town

By : Liz Anne

Jul 25, 2012

When I say I want more
Than this small town could offer

When I say I give more
Than this small town asks of me

When I say I’ve loved more
Than this small town could know

When I say I need more
Than this small town wants me to

I mean to say I am more
Than this small town would let me be

Callan County Kilkenny 1

Small Town

By : Rebecca Hattaway

Oct 29, 2012

In her smile I can see something-
something like satisfaction,
or even pride?

that she has everyone fooled
but no one is falling for the bullshit.
Secrets don’t exist here.

It’s a back and forth game,
and she denies it until the end.

Most people play along,
laughing quietly
“Just humor her,
Let her think we buy it.”

Callan County Kilkenny 2

Small Town

By : Silence Screamz

Oct 25, 2014

Small town people
Small town minds
Gossip turn sour
No secrets left behind

Small town girls
Small town boys
Turn off the lights
Lock up your toys

Small town crimes
Small town night
Light up the fires
Creeps into sight

Small town games
Small town sins
Newlywed murders
Takes it on the chin

Small town stories
Small town fairs
Drowning in the lake
Nobody cares


Its the weekend , Time to get out and walk and relax if you can …………

Slieve League Coastline
County Donegal
Irish Landscape Photography : Nigel Borrington

Its the weekend so I just wanted to share one of my favorite places in Ireland, the coastal mountains of Slieve-League , County Donegal.

This location is one of the most Beautiful spots in Ireland, looking out directly towards county Sligo and its bay and in land along the coast towards Donegal city itself.

Landscape Locations such as this one are just amazing to visit and all so easy to take for granted, when ever I have to leave a spot like this I make an assumption that I will return one day soon, I know just like us all though , maybe not πŸ™‚ .

So it’s the weekend, if you can get outside , visit your most loved places and don’t rush away back home !!!!!!


A Poem for the weekend – The Road Not Taken By : Robert Frost

The road not taken Robert frost.
Landscape Photography : Nigel Borrington

“The Road Not Taken” by : Robert Frost is a favorite poem of his, I often re-read it and sometimes think of it when out in our local woods here in County Kilkenny.

This weekend I hope you can find time to walk your own path and roads, enjoy yourself and get to relax and put the last week behind you .

The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

The road not taken robert frost 2

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

The road not taken robert frost 3

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and Iβ€”
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.


Its the weekend , so get outside and relax if you can – Have a great weekend !!

Today I just want to share some images take at the banks of one of my favorite irish rivers the Awbeg River (Irish: An Abhainn Bheag, meaning “the small river”). This river is a river in the southern part of Ireland. It is a tributary of the Blackwater River and flows into that larger river at a point in County Cork. Its name comes from the Irish Abha Bheag (“small river”, a slightly older form than the modern Irish name).

As its a Friday Afternoon, I wish everyone a great weekend ahead. I hope you get sometime off and have a chance to spend time in a place just like this one πŸ™‚

Irish Landscape Images, Black and White Friday

Black and White Friday

It hard to believe how fast a week can go – Its Friday already πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

The Last Friday of January 2015 and I was trying to think what Images could best show the month we have just had here in Ireland. I love black and white Images at this time of year I feel they capture the winter months very well. This month we have had many seasons all in one go, sometime warmer than expected other times we have been very cold with Snow on the hills.

Last night I selected these four images as I feel they show everything from Freezing mists in the mountains to snow on the hill tops and a cold sea mist hanging just off the county Waterford coastline.

As its Friday I will wish everyone a great weekend, I hope you manage to get out into the open air and well! just relax and have a great time ! πŸ™‚
