Foreground: ruins of medieval (13th C?) cathedral at Ferns. Five window arches survive on one side, and one on the other. Rear: current mostly 19th-C church.
Wexford winsome trio.
Dublin schoolgirls learning about high crosses at heritage park (HP). “Monk” guide did a great job.
The Guru captured a heron and friend in the crannog’s lake at the HP.
Stenciled quote (lines skipped) from Hávamál on wall at HP.
Emo petrol? Killeens swirls?
Tintern Abbey; that is: Tintern Minor abbey. Much modified, but most of “the bones” of what we see is probably 16th C. Used as a residence until 1959.
Today was busy-farm-equipment day, including many tractor-rigs on the road. Two days ago, it was paint-your-front-fence day—we saw three being painted and one being pressure-washed‚ none before or since.
I want this label!
The Guru made Droney fly for the third time here.
Given that the iPhone darkens a shot like this, you must compensate. I could easily read a book in the ambient light, although it seems darker in this version. This was at 9:02pm. And it’s light out very early, too.
Good night, all.

JCB had the long-lens camera, so it’s his heron…busy fishing, but also keeping an eye on the tour-ons.
Thinking of you from here…. Rain is coming.
