Snow Over The Bay.

Hi everybody.  This is a photograph of Bantry Bay taken on Friday morning.  There was a talcum powder like covering of the Caha mountain range over on Beara.  Which is the peninsula across from us.  We live on Sheeps Head.  




The mountain is Hungry hill which I have shown you before.  It reminded me of that great Neil Young song: Sugar Mountain.  Sugar Loaf mountain is also on Beara.  But Hungry Hill looked more spectacular.  Hope you are all well and I will catch up with your blogs this week.  Not been in a blogging mood.  H

Here is another song that's always playing on my mental juke box.  Neil Peart (Rush lyricist and drummer) coined the phrase in his wonderful motorbike travel memoir: Ghost Rider.

    1. Hi LA. Yes it's beautiful scenery like your Greek Island. Glad you like the music. My music taste is very eclectic and very much in the past. Thanks.

  2. Lovely photo of the bay and the mountain and snow and blue sky.

    Manchester City given a lesson in football by Everton this afternoon. United luck to snatch an equaliser. It is certainly an interesting season.

    1. Thanks Rachel. I think Chelsea are nearly over the hill and running away with the title. Tottenham look close for second spot. Then it's between Arsenal, Liverpool, City and United for the other two places.

      United should have played Rashford on the left. When they play the traditional United way with wingers, they can beat anybody.

    1. Hiya Sol. Ireland is very beautiful and very under populated compared to the UK. We do get a lot of rain though. Mizzle weather today. Thanks!

  4. Lovely view. I bet it was better from behind glass though - looks chilly!

    1. Hi Kev. Thanks. It's probably been the mildest winter I have ever known here next to the Atlantic Ocean. The snow was gone by eleven in the morning.
