This house is very old

By: by Sherri Ramirez

This house is very old.
Yet, it stands so gracefully.
If the walls could only talk.
I bet they’d have a lot to say.

It holds a lot of memories,
buried deep inside.
It seems to stand with attitude,
as if it carries pride.

It stands upon the foundation,
seeming to claim the land.
Refusing to wither from age
with a little help from my man.

Not one room, is a favorite,
each displays a special touch.
It might be old but, we don’t mind.
We love it very much.

Barley Lake, Glengarrif, county Cork

Spending last week staying in Glengarrif, west county Cork I have just started to look at some of the Landscape photo’s taken during the week.

Glengarrif is located on the south east of the Beara Peninsula, west cork and is one of the most feature filled locations in Ireland, with (Mountains, nature reserves, rivers, Lakes and a wonderful coastline).

Barley Lake is located high above the town about as high as you can get a lake, sheep being its only visitors for most of the Year. The walk up is long but great fun as the views along the route are just wonderful.

I will post a full Gallery soon along with lots of the other great local locations I visited during the week.

Just For now the above image is a full view of Barley lake with its surrounding hills and wonderful Landscape setting. The image was created by stitching eleven separate images into one panoramic view.
