What a summer!

Please ignore the photo above….

I recall about 10 years ago an Irish summer like this year’s – sun every day. Yes, yes, I know that Ireland has the rap that it’s always raining….”Tis a soft day, thank God…” a Dubliner might say. But not this year. Grant you, it’s not as warm as it may be in Sicily; here,  it’s temperate and delightful. On the odd cool night we’ll have a fire in the LR fireplace, but hardly ever this summer; whereas I can remember lots of summers here in Ireland that were like winter days in Venice, UK,  or New York, i.e., cold and rainy.

But I ain’t complaining.

An added feature of Ireland is that its longitude means it gets dark very late in the summer and mornings arrive very early. 5AM.  Still light at 10 PM…
