Men, Men, Men, Men, Men-dee-Men-Men!
So, you're tired of men, are you? Well feast your eyes on THIS beauty! ( I jest, so I do.)
Here's another Flickr Commons photo from the National Library of Ireland, and what have we here? Not one, but TWO women! Hurrah! (I was greatly relieved to find the second lady in the background with the lovely hat, but I'll be honest, even I am going to struggle to come up with a photo that follows this theme!)
This picture is of "Twin Wells" on the banks of the River Aille at Lisdoonvarna in County Clare, taken around the turn of the century (1900).
Apparently the waters were acclaimed as restorative and this place was designated a spa. By the looks of things, the old lady in the photo has not benefited, or isn't drinking them. Ha!
Go on my dears, and make what you can of this, be it spas, water, old ladies, young ladies, tourists, umbrellas, homeless people. Go on!
I cannot possibly think of this spot in the south of Ireland without giving you a little related treat. Here's a YouTube clip of a somewhat famous tune entitled, "Lisdoonvarna" by the equally famous, Christy Moore. Bear with the brief advertisement at the beginning.
Here we go! Another couple of teasers for you - and look, in two weeks, not a man in sight!!!
I have made an effort to visit everyone who posted last week, and if you had a method whereby I could follow your blog, I have done so. I would be most grateful if you would reciprocate. A hearty thanks to all who have done so, so far.
Don't forget to visit all the undoubtedly stellar interpretations of the photo below, by visiting the Sepia Saturday blog (beginning on Friday) and clicking on the links. Thank you!
