The English Market in Cork

We took a transatlantic cruise from Miami to Dublin in April. One of the stops was in Cobh, Ireland. While in port, we took the train from Cobh to Cork. After walk around a bit, we realized that Cobh had seemed more interesting — except for the English Market. It is a busy market, but there isn’t anything there a cruising tourist could buy (fresh fish, anyone?) which was perfect for us. We were able to explore and take photographs (fortunately, we didn’t discover the sign limiting photography until we were leaving). The following is one of the many images we captured.

Fishing Boats near Colombo

We visited Sri Lanka for the month of February. One of our early stops was at a harbor for fishing boats just outside Colombo. The daily catch is either sold in stalls and outdoor markets or left drying in the sun for later use.

… a fish needs a bicycle — Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: May 13, 2018

This is our entry in Cee’s Odd Ball Photo Challenge: May 13, 2018.

This animated sculpture is located on the third (“World of Advertising”) floor of  The Guinness Storehouse® in Dublin, Ireland.  It  brings to life the saying coined by the Australian Irina Dunn in 1970:

A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.
