#throwback to my Irish travels Photos: 1. The view of Ireland from the plane 2. a slightly creepy cloister in a monastery at #killarneynationalpark. There was a nicely maintained cemetery outside, but a lot of dark drafty passages inside + an ancient gnarled tree in the centre that extended up at least three stories of the old building 3. A dish of tripe (cow stomach) and drisheen (animal blood pudding) with creamy sauce. A dish well known in Cork. I realized during its consumption, that contrary to my expectations, I could not quite stomach all tripe dishes. 4. Drawing with fellow traveler friends at a bar in #corkireland 5. Still not really understanding why there were two separate taps for hot and cold water, which I saw at a lot of hostels in Cork, Dublin and Killarney 6. Taking the long uphill walk to #corkcitygaol, but not liking museums and being overly cheap this trip, ended up just circling the outside, then trying to negotiate with the lady at the ticketing admissions desk, then walking right back down the way I came. This was the same day #stormhannah hit Cork, so took an earlier bus to Dublin after 7. A look over the #riverlee in Cork. There’s a saying if one sees seals in the River Lee, they’d be living in Cork for ... (forgot the number but) a real long time (credit @adrngtrz for sharing this) #irelandtravels#corkireland#killarneyireland
It’s a month now since Storm Hannah revealed the petrified forest at Ynyslas and Borth, in Ceridigion, Wales. . The prehistoric forest was buried in sand more than 4,500 years ago. . It has something of a Barbara Hepworth about it, or a whale about it.
In an unexpected twist, tropical storm Hannah has uncovered a 'drowned' forest that got buried under water and sand almost 4,500 years ago! The incredible images of the forest that is located south of Snowdonia, were shared by Wayne Lewis, a photographer from Wales. The skeletal trees, reportedly, date back to the Bronze age and the forest is being linked to a 17th-century myth of a sunken civilization called the 'Sunken Hundred'. . . .

Storm Hannah has exposed a prehistoric forest buried under water and sand for over 4,500 years ago between the villages of Ynyslas and Borth in Mid Wales. The forest is thought to be part of a mythical submerged civilization, known as Cantre'r Gwaelod, or the Sunken Hundred. #cgtn#ancient#ancientforest#remains#prehistoric#stormhannah#mystery
#ntchallenge By the water I spent a weekend in Cornwall last month, visiting lots of Poldark filming locations, many of which are areas looked after by the National Trust. Here's Levant Mine, which has a very long and interesting history.
