Last Post From Dingle

Alas, all good things must come to an end. Tomorrow we leave Dingle and head to Sligo. Tonight we are enjoying our last visit to Tigh TP pub. Fish and chips and a pint. 😉 Today it has stormed all day. High winds from the south bringing warm air, and lots of rain. We stayed indoors and packed.

Thursday we played our first golf since arriving in Europe. It would be terrible to visit Ireland and not play golf. Therefore, through wind, sleet, and driving rain we played 18 holes on on the Dingle par 3 course. Okay, we sat out most of the sleet and rain in the clubhouse after running for our lives from the second tee. When the storm passed we resumed our game. Like most links courses, the greens were small, there were lots of berms and bumps to contend with, and the greens were hard and fast. A good time was had by all!

I completed another painting yesterday. This one is a painting of two items that epitomize Dingle roadsides: rock walls and foxglove. Everywhere we’ve driven or walked these last three weeks the foxglove have greeted us.

Tomorrow it’s off to the Irish lake ditrict near Sligo. We have rented a stone cottage on a farm on the shores of Loch Gill. We have no idea what kind of internet connections we will find, so keep watching for the next post.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

  2. Ahhh, foxgloves! They remind me of my grandmother Mary, who always seemed to have them in her garden. I look forward to seeing photos of your next stay once you get an internet connection.
