A collection of ‘Mermaids Purses’, washed up on the beach by my home over the last year ; the lastest one just 2 days ago.
Because it’s that time of year on Bofin (and further afield) for drinking heaps of it !
One of the beautiful Inishbofin beaches captured on the ferry to the mainland this week
I just love this photo – something very simply heartwarming about it …
The description read : “In the early spring shepherds drive huge flocks of livestock, here sheep, mules, donkeys, and goats from the Pre-Alpine hills to the plains of Lombardy, for grazing. The newborn lambs are carried in a custom made side saddle by the donkeys, and returned to their mothers at rest time.” Courtesy of avantgarden.org facebook page. Photo: Elspeth Kinneir
