Irish Whale Watching Sunday

Today was Irish National Whale Watching Day. As I live by the sea I decided that I would toddle on and have a look. Our local group were meeting at Slea Head. Did I read the info leaflet, did I heck, got there by 5.25pm, session finished at 5pm, stopped along the way to take a walk on the beach with Tiny ( the dog) as Son after saying that he would come decided that Whale watching was not interesting enough for him, so he stayed home with hubby to watch football.

I know I did leave it abit late because I forgot it was on today.

I did remember to bring my binoculars, yeah for me! Stopped off at meeting point, all on my tod except for Tiny, but who says that whales keep to a time table. lol. Sat on the wall just looking round, watched a few fishing boats return in the bay and some pleasure craft also but not a whale to be seen. I did take my camera so here are a few 'photos I took.

These are the cliffs I was standing on.

The only bit of wild life I did see. lol.

My companion, Tiny.

New profile photo

No that is not a photo of me, lol, it is a photo of our little dog, Tiny. We have him almost a year now and has been a re-homed dog. He is really cute and so funny at times, he loves having his belly rubbed and his ears scratched. Where would we be without our little pets?

"Where has all the sunshine gone...."

Summer Time.....

Where has the time gone, once again it is passing me by so fast, I just don't know....

This weekend in the busiest weekend here in Dingle, we have our annual Race Weekend and the town is "chocker block" full of cars, horses and people. This weekend also signals the end of Summer, "sigh".

But I just wanted to post some good news for all us crafter's, Julie M is having a blog candy giveaway, visit her wonderful blog here. Julie is a wonderful card maker, you will really enjoy reading and looking at her blog. And good luck.

I actually have not been card making for a while I had intended to do some today but here I am at my 'puter, this is just not good enough.

I have being putting together a set of "Sean Fhocail" (old saying, it is an Irish phrase) cards to sell in a local craft shop, An Gailearaí Beag, here is a sample of them.

The background paper is a digital download from Waltzing Mouse Stamps. The stamps that I have used are also from this company.
Hope you like,
