My somewhat quirky views as I gaze at the world around me!

Last September, I was able to return to my  grandmother’s birthplace.  Thanks to a wonderful hotel desk clerk at the Kilronan Castle Hotel and then a great butcher on Peter Street in Boyle, County Roscommon, I was able to locate the “auld homestead”.  Knocked on the door and was given traditional Irish hospitality for several hours, got names and locations of my great-uncle William’s buddies, tea and bickies , and the deeds dating back to 1905……………  On my return trip to County Meath, we were treated to incredible rainbows!

This is one of the things I miss when I spend the winters in Florida, rather than at home in Moynalty, Ireland.  Yes, it rains a lot but the compensation is the abundance of rainbows.  It often rains in the afternoon, when the sun is in the front of the house, so I look out the back windows and BEHOLD!  The glorious rainbow appears and if you look carefully, there is a second one above it.

I know there are also rainbows in Florida, but I live in a townhouse with limited windows, in a complex with 3 story buildings all around and in a town with lots of structures to obscure them.  However, I am on a golf course, a 5 minute walk from the beach and blessed in so very many ways.  And I can store up my rainbow and sunrise/sunset mental (and digital!)  images then pull them out whenever needed!  Life is good.
