Ireland

(from left to right)

  • The town of Kinsale in County Cork. I painted this ten years ago and it is now hanging in a home in Dublin, Ohio. Home of the largest Irish festival in the Country. (http://dublinirishfestival.org/)
  • Ha’Penny Bridge in Dublin. Named after the English currency of a half penny, anyone crossing the bridge had to pay a half penny to use the bridge to cross the river Liffey. (http://www.lonelyplanet.com/ireland/dublin)
  • Bantry Bay in County Cork. I stopped into a pub along my travels through Bantry Bay and ordered the seafood chowder (I lived off of this stuff while I backpacked the country) and it was amazing! I will have to do more research some day…yummy!

  • Paddle-boarding & Kayak sunset adventures on Big Moose Lake, Adirondack State Park.  Relaxing in the mountains with no cell reception, television, radio, or emergency sirens.  I love to rediscover the joys of simply living slowly. (http://visitadirondacks.com/)

Philly

(from left to right)

  • Magic Gardens mosaic mural by artist Isaiah Zagar.  I took this photo in passing along one of my many walks through Philly’s famous street, South Street.  (http://www.phillymagicgardens.org/)
  • I took a stroll off Passyunk Square during spring time and had to capture the image of petals drizzled along my walk.  It looked like the sidewalk was painted pink.  It was lovely!  (http://www.passyunksquare.org/)
  • Sunset atop the Rocky Stairs outside of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  This was my favorite place along my daily route, to look out to the city.  (https://www.philamuseum.org/)

South

  • My absolute favorite place is Savannah, Georgia.  The Spanish moss is amazing and I love the shadows they play in the sunshine.  If you go stop into Kevin Barry’s Pub for a bite and pint on the riverfront. (http://www.kevinbarrys.com/ordereze/default.aspx)
  • Tybee Island is a little off of Georgia. I could not resist taking a photo of the seagull army storming the beach. I suggest renting a bike to travel along the hard sand. (http://www.fattirebikestybee.com/)

    Hi Maureen. Really nice images here. All good, I mean it.
    But I notice you save this as ‘a page’, why? I really recommend saving this as ‘posts’ (not just one), so it will be easier for chance visitors to find your blog. Cheers! 🙂
