Rainy day postcards

craigdarroch castle

Oh I am very pleased to announce that one of the museums is using an image I took of Craigdarroch Castle for a history panel about the Vancouver Island 19th century Coal Baron, Robert Dunsmuir.  I suppose if I don’t have one in an art gallery then a museum is not a bad alternative!

But while the weather is still a bit iffy I had a chance  to go through my summer travels and will share with you more of the beauty of County Kerry.

it doesn’t matter where you are going, the journey is everything!

and more to come!

  9. Congratulations on your museum postcard. It’s no wonder they want to use it, it’s gorgeous! Love your County Kerry pics–especially the swans that just “light up” on the water.
