Fresh and Salty

Fresh and Salty

I’m sorry there was no Thursday Doors post this week as I was away for a few days, with no access to the internet. However, I did take lots of interesting photos of doors and castles to post over the next few weeks. We rented a lovely cottage by a lake in county Cavan and spent some time there with our children and grandchildren. Ireland is not only surrounded by the sea on its coastline but has an abundance of inland rivers and lakes. Here are some photos of both fresh and salty bodies of water that I have the privilege and good fortune to enjoy on a regular basis.

Cruising on the River Erne, County Cavan


Hope to see you next week for Thursday Doors, featuring a ruined castle, autumn woodland and some thirsty cattle.

    Well, I could accept your doorless apology if you’d only brought some stunning beach photos with incredible light and composition…And look at that! Wow, I bet you had a marvelous time, since the photos are never as good as the experience!

    The skies are so inviting! It looks like it hasn’t turned cold yet? The beach is drawing me in -it wants me to go back to summer, lol!. Sounds like you got some family time in – it’s good you keep that up:) Thanks for the alert you’re back:)

    • We’ve been having a fabulous autumn here. Some days are grey but overall the temperature is still pretty good. The day we took the boat upriver was sunny and no wind at all, which made it feel even warmer. 🙂


  7. What gorgeous pics, Jean!

    Hmm.. There’s something about sky reflected in water, or sunlight on water that I really like.
    Your next/planned Thursday Doors post sounds intriguing. In the meanwhile, perhaps we can say there’s a metaphorical door in these photos somewhere 😉

    Oh my, the photos taken from the River Erne are wonderful. It looks barely large enough for a boat to pass through. I imagine it was a beautiful ride.

    I liked these natural and always opened doors!…. the Sea provides an infinite world of possibilities once you dare to gaze upon it!. Beautiful photographs, dear Jean… sending all my best wishes. Aquileana 😀
