grass at Monasterboice
north of Drogheda, Ireland
I think I'm going to leave Ireland photos with this last pic from Monasterboice, the historic ruins of a religious enclave settled by St. Buite in the 5th century. It is famous for its high crosses, and they are fascinating, but something about the rainy day drew my eye outside the walled settlement where I was feeling a bit claustrophobic. This photo is also a bit representative, for me anyway, of the Irish. They continue to grow in strength and tenacity, out of some pretty rocky history. And they amaze me with their happy spirit.
I appreciate your visits and comments on the pics from Ireland. Now I have to get out and shoot some new photos here in Michigan.
