yesterday I visited my favourite Fitton Street East again. things are still happening there, good things with light and colours and reflections. this picture is an obvious continuation of this one here.
the Dutch tall ship Astrid sunk after hitting the rocks near Kinsale three days ago. nobody died, nobody was hurt, thanks to efficiency of Irish rescue teams.
the ship presents a truly surreal sight. still with full rigging and sails, looking seaworthy, ready to sail.
we have a summer this year. a real one. Cork looks and feels so different - people stay outside all the time, eat, sit on doorsteps. It s beautiful.
heat got so severe actually that Met Eireann - our weather authority - had to withdraw the usual phrase residing on their website all over the year (mostly cloudy, scattered showers) and even issued a heat related weather warning! happy times.
late night, empty streets, the only two lit windows with mannequins in them.
