Come with me …..

Come with me …..

.. while we walk along the banks of the River Martin, towards the Blarney Castle, Co. Cork …

… the path leading to the Castle meanders through part of the 60 acres of parkland …

… with trees in their autumnal shades …

…. crossing over the Blarney River we come across the Castle reaching high above it’s rocky foundation …

… no .. not up these steps ..

.. we must pass the tower …

… is Sleeping Beauty in her slumber, waiting for her handsome Prince inside the castle surrounded with thorny rose bushes and climbers …? …


… let’s enter the gate …

… and climb 127 very narrow steps ….

.. not quite at the top … but take a breather and enjoy the view …. overlooking the castle wall and road below it …
… just like the doves …


… phew .. at the top of the Castle’s keep where the man who-holds-you-ever-so-tightly-while -you-bend-backwards-pursing-your-lips-to-kiss-the-Blarney Stone … awaits his next ‘victim’ …

…. hubby !! … actually it was me …. hubby didn’t want a turn (!) .. but was kind-of coerced !

… while I leaned over the battlements to take in the beauty of the surroundings
