Up in the City

Lovely changes in my native city of Cork, shown above. Sidewalks widened, outdoor cafes everywhere, most roads are now pedestrian only which adds to the truly alive buzz of a busy city with no danger from vehicles.

I loved how the new buildings enhance the old and that height regulations still exist for the most part.

Whenever I envision Cork in my memories it is always shrouded in rain, wet slick sidewalks, black umbrellas, reflected headlights.

The weather has been perfect, sunny spring days, Cork looking like it belonged in a painting of Renoir's.

I will replace the outdated internal photo album.

Up Cork. Yeah.

And PS I am reading blogs but for some reason I can't comment.


  1. You are on holiday so there is no need to comment. Enjoy you last few days.

  2. I'm so glad your visit is a good one! Cork sounds beautiful.

  3. I'm happy to hear that you're enjoying your visit and that your experience with Cork is such a positive one. Isn't it nice how they treat European cities nowadays? They've all become such user friendly places.

    Don't worry about leaving comments. You're on a holiday. Enjoy!

  4. Thanks for this lovely update on Cork where I lived for a couple of years and where our daughter was born. It's been too long and I really must get back there, but when???
    Enjoy your visit, hope you make/made it to West Cork - heavenly.

  5. Ireland has many beautiful places, not just in the countryside. Sadly, despite living less than a hundred miles away for much of my life, I've only ever seen them in photographs. Hopefully, once we retire, my wife and I will find time to finally visit. It's certainly on our list.
    I'm so glad you're enjoying your trip.

  6. Happy to know you are having a wonderful time in the Owld Country, WWW! :-)

  7. It sounds like a place I'd like to visit. But I may run out of time. It's good to be reminded of how beautiful the world is, even some of the man made parts.
