This place is so incredible, like seriously beautiful. I was there all day today.
To those who know it, you might not think it’s too great. A nice river, some big trees…
Have you ever gone further, though?

We went out foraging, me my parents and our dog. We’d been there before around the same time last year but we had only gone around the main loop. But up a little path up the valley, a whole new world opened up. I’ve never seen so many old, deciduous trees in Ireland before. It was so pretty, and the river was shining blue and argh. It was so perfect. The ground was all mossy and there were mushrooms everywhere.
But enough of me. Here’s some photos.

The Summer. Where Is It?

I am seeing all these things about everywhere being warm. ahem. not in Ireland. i know that’s why its green. but honestly, i need some sun. I live on sunshine. I mean, right now, its sunny, and the temperature on the car said it was 18c, but there is a wind blowing that chills me. and for some countries, that’s cold. but here, its hot. the only thing i hate about Ireland is the weather. Its the only reason i would ever consider moving somewhere else. although i don’t really have that option right now, seeing as I’m twelve.
The only consistent good weather we have had this year was in March for about a week, and in May for about a week. other than that, its been awful. in June there was more than double the average rainfall, and July wasn’t too good either.
All i ask for is a bit of warmth, that is not going to burst into thunder at any point in the day?
I don’t think that’s a very likely demand to be fulfilled, seeing as there isn’t many people who can actually change the weather…
the weather forecast for tomorrow is for sunny spells and spot flooding. oh dear.
