1 Poet, 2 Rivers and Banksy

Vintage VespaWell, strictly speaking, Banksy himself wasn’t there. Neither was Thomas Moore, the poet – but samples of their work was. I  spent a lovely weekend with my three sisters in the beautiful county of Wicklow and the Irish weather did not let us down. We paid a visit to The Meetings of the Waters in the Vale of Avoca, the place that inspired some of Thomas Moore’s work. A bonus find was a group of fabulous scooters so creatively decorated and adorned that we spent as much time looking at them as we did the scenery.

Actually, we also took a lot more photos of the scooters. Thomas Moore would have been aghast at us drooling over mechanical contraptions instead of the beauty of nature. We couldn’t help ourselves as you can see from the photos. It was difficult to choose our favourites, but we all had one.

 Those three beauties in the photo on the left are my sisters, having a hard time deciding on which one they liked best. We must have spent twenty minutes walking around them discussing the pros and cons of each one. It was easy for me as my husband owned a similar one in the seventies.

Our little Lambretta was even the same colour, but we didn’t have the sidecar. It would have been so handy for the shopping and the dog. I also  took note of Thomas Moore’s beautiful Vale of Avoca, it would be difficult not to. You can check that out in the link below.
