Guess who?


Clue: Tomorrow is March 17th and this was in DownPATRICK, County Down Northern Ireland.

It's huge and situated in front of the St Patrick's Exhibition Centre, in readiness for the Annual St Patrick's Day parade.  To see more of the Centre and cathedral in his honour, click HERE for last year's post.

These are some photos taken earlier in the week before all the rain...

Ardglass is a fishing village not far from Downpatrick.


Linking these with Weekend Reflections HERE


The tide was out...

...and these fishing boats had seen better days...


These were waiting on mended nets.


Thanks for coming by!

Linking with Willy Nilly Friday HERE

  9. New Header picture here! :-) I love "the Look" of blogs, and love to play with "the Look" of my blog. So I notice, when someone else, changes something.

    Wow, he looks formidable! :-)

    Instead of just pictures of lovely strands of beach, this is the working side of the sea. Very interesting. Both sides. The beauty. And the work for a living.

  11. I am ready for the parade. Here anyone is invited to join the "Friendly Son's of Ireland" group in the parade so I have marched a few times.My family came from Bohemia so we are more into St. Joseph and drink a red beer.LOL I went to Italy one St. Pat's and thought the church maybe was saying at least a mass, but it turned out to be a funeral.My best parade was in San Francisco, California I will fix some bubble and squeak.

  16. That's a huge statue. I love the fishing boats. Reminds me of visiting Nova Scotia where the boats rest on the muddy bottom of the harbour at low tide. I always enjoy your picture from County Down since that's where my great grandfather immigrated to the States from. - Margy

  18. This is a gorgeous place! For some reason, it makes me think of Jesus' disciples and their fishing boats.This picture of the old fishing boats sis GORGEOUS!!! It has such character, and is almost sad in some way. And when a photo evokes strong feelings, that is what makes it so good. The little village with the boat in front is so wonderful. These shots are almost timeless, and so striking.
