Thank you Duncan. Glad you enjoyed the picture. I feel truly blessed to have gotten the chance to see such beauty in person. Sounds like you have been blessed to witness such beauty too :o)  ~Donna

A fine example of Irish cliff scenery from the rugged Atlantic west coast...breath-taking! It always strikes me, just how clean and clear the water appears, this is a rare quality which is to be found now in few areas in Europe.

Slán águs Beánnacht, Duncan.

You think [i]you're[/i] glad! I have a reason for being grateful to the woollies and their collective contribution to hattery. And remember -- Soylent Green is [i]not[/i] an Irish product! (Nor is Vegemite, but I'm sure I'd like that better... D'ya think that'd be good on some Taytos, with a Guinness? Wait -- there are cow, pig, chicken and prawn-flavored Taytos, but not sheep! Someone should put a bug in their corporate ear... :P)

Mutton after going bald? Sounds like a possibility to me. Good thing the same doesn't apply to humans going bald :)

Well, I'm not in the habit of making the acquaintance of my dinner beforehand. (When I was a kid, we consumed the eggs of my pet hens -- never the biddies themselves. Plus, for the happiness of all, there were roosters, as well, and occasionally, when a hen got broody, I'd let her set and add to the flock, so that the cycle was complete.) I've never inquired, but maybe fine wool-producers become mutton only after they start going bald... ;D

Sláinte Ben! As for wondering what the life was like of the sheep that contributed to the fine lid on your noggin, in my opinion sometimes answers are better left a mystery :)

Cheers, Donna. ;) The lid is of excellent Donegal tweed, with nice parti-colored specks all through it. (I've wondered if my forebears tended or sheared -- or ate (!) the ancestors of the sheep that contributed their wool to it... LOL M-m-m... cottage pie... and Guinness!)

Thank you all for your kind words regarding this photo. I count my lucky stars that I was able to experience such a beautiful place. I was smitten and hope to go back someday... Ireland has my heart too like you, Linda and Chris. Ben, nice hat by the way, wouldn't want to see you lose it :).

Visited in Oct. but wish I was there right now to once again enjoy the beauty...Ireland has my heart....

That's a lovely shot, Donna -- but if the wind got under my cap there, it'd be all she wrote! (Hanna Hats would be ringing up another sale before long...)
