Oh what a beautiful morning

It was another beautiful day in Sligo today. The photo above was taken at 7.30am when I was walking Rocket-dog. I think I’m going to have to start bringing a torch out with us though as it’s very dark…and it’ll be even worse when the clocks go back at the weekend. I realise these two […]
