Not an Addict

It’s not a habit, it cool, I feel alive.

A brief history of my relationship with booze, over the course of this blog.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Vibrant

With the overcast week we have had, I did not find a good photo opportunity for this weeks challenge.  So I reached way back into the archives to our honeymoon in Ireland to find this vibrant picture.

Back in 2010, we visited this vibrantly colored pub in Dingle, Ireland.

The people inside were just as vibrant as the walls outside.

Tom 365 – November 30, 2015

Our Ireland Aventure is over, but we brought home a bunch of good memories. 

And some of the stuff that helped make those memories.

And then just like that it is over. 

Heading home from our much too short stay in Dublin.

Getting the Christmas Season started with a kick at the Old Jameson Distillery in Dublin.

Yes, we saw U2 again. Only this time in Dublin. 

Better than any Black Friday Sales back home.

It is not what you drink, it is who you drink with and where you drink. 

Happy Anniversary, Babe.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Descent

My wife and I have been to Northern Ireland twice, and one of our favorite places is The Giant’s Causeway.  But just down the road from the causeway is another stop that is just as amazing, and also quite an adventure.

The Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge.

Carrick-A-Rede Rope Bridge

The bridge itself does span quite a descent, but that is not why it makes this weeks challenge, it is the descent down to the bridge.

Descent to Carrick-A-Rede

Those people at the bottom of the steep stairway are my wife and myself.

Journey to Carrick-A-Rede

And that first step onto the bridge also presents quite a view of a descent.

Weekly Photo Challenge: (Danger) Signs

There may have to be more than one entry this week. I have a lot of signs in my collection.

Let’s start with something simple, a danger sign:

Cliffs of Moher Sign

For anyone who has been to The Cliffs of Moher recently, you will know that to get to this sign, you first have to jump a barrier that was placed to keep you away from the edge.  Those with an adventurous spirit will find a way out to the sign, and place a sticker to indicate they were there.  On the other side of the sign, there is a drop.  A very long drop.

If you look carefully, you will see footprints in the ice and snow beyond the sign.
