Winter in Ireland, heavy snow falls?

For this winter our weather frogs predicted severe weather. Well, we are still waiting for it, the same as we waited for the scorching hot summer last year, which never appeared.
You might think that it is normal that they get it wrong sometimes, but our climatologists never get it right. I can believe my own eyes better when I look out of the window, then I can trust in their predictions!
It was snowing in the West and North of the country in the past few days and there the snow even stayed on the ground because it was cold enough, but I did not see one single snow flake down here in the South East of Ireland - up to yesterday, but then the miracle happened - heaven opened and Mother Hulda shook out her feather-beds. Big snow flakes danced down from the sky, but unfortunately they disappeared immediately as soon as they touched the ground. The ferret cats which made themselves at home in our garden shed during the winter, looked curious out of the window of their house, wondering what that was. It was their first time seeing snow and they seemed to like it.
I normally would put a photo with this post, as I usually do with most of my posts, but  I have no wintry picture from this year, sorry!

Hot Air Balloons over Waterford



Once again the hot air balloons excited old and young, the show started on Monday and ended tonight. As much as I like to look at those beautiful balloons, I would not be brave enough to go on a journey in one of them.

A lovely autumn day in Tramore, Co. Waterford


We had a lovely summer, but the autumn does not look too bad neither.

Landing of Crystal Serenity Cruise Liner from Nassau, Bahamas in Dunmore East








 Saw this beautiful cruise liner in Dunmore East, County Waterford today and wished I could go on board  and travel back with it to Nassau, in the Bahamas, where it came from

THE SKELLIGS, Co. Kerry










That is how the weather looked like when we left Valentia island to head to the Skelligs.
I was afraid that it would start to rain any moment, but as you see it cleared up and it was perfect at the end.

Though we were the last boat to leave the port we were the first ones to arrive at the Skelligs as the captain of our ship was the "Niki Lauda of the Sea", he won the race against all the others!



The view was really amazing! Who would not like to see that!


I forgot to mention that I got very seasick when we headed over to the island and I was delighted to get out of the boat after 50 minutes, but it was really worth it!
Unfortunately I did not make it to the top as I was not fit enough to climb the 600 steps to see the Monk's stone buildings, so you will have to imagine them or to look on the internet for the Skelligs.
