I agree...

A week is more than enough for one post to decorate this place. It's time for a new one.
Tomorrow (I think) is the Summer Solstice. The longest day of the year. Midsummer.
It's been raining and storming for about 10 days now. I have been wearing a fleece top under my bike jacket (still with the removable 'Winter' lining zipped in) to get to and from work. Summer, my ass! I don't remember the last time I saw blue skies...
Oh wait, that's not entirely true. It was two Saturdays ago when we went to visit our friends in Cork, and the four of us went for a stroll around Fota Wildlife Park. The weather was stunning that day - a perfect 23 degrees and cloudless skies.
It started raining the next day and it hasn't stopped since.

So since my mood is about the same as the heavy grey stormclouds outside, let's remember sunnier times with some photo's I took that day...


GIRAFFE AND ZEBRA IN IRELAND???!

Jason - It was the first time I'd seen live flamingos. Very pretty. Now I want to go to that lake in Africa where they flock in their thousands.

Laurie - Ah... Paris... luckily I have 121 photos to choose from for the background on my PC...

Angel - I think that's Oryx. I was too busy taking pics to read all the info boards.

Beads - LOL! I think you got that right!
