That's a mobile phone photo took from our kitchen door over looking Bantry Bay. It's Hungry Hill over on Beara Peninsula. The hill inspired Daphne Du Maurier to write: Hungry Hill. Margaret Lockwood starred in the 1947 film or "filum" if you say it that way. The novel was her seventh book and there have been 33 editions printed. The film and novel are based on the the history and family saga of Daphne Du Maurier's friend Christopher Puxley who owned Copper mines in the area. I have never read it have you?
It's often said locally that when there is a cap of cloud on top of Hungry Hill, it's going to rain. The transparent like cap on the top in our picture. Made no difference and the weather is glorious at the moment. There has been a lot of frosts lately and this is always followed by the rain. I think it comes next Tuesday.
My grandfather could look at the tide and tell you what time it was without looking at a clock or watch. Another sign of rain is Beara Peninsula looking really close, dogs eating grass and rocks shining in the distant hill sides. What ways do you know for predicting the weather? I don't mean watching the news!
