Round like a circle….

‘Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending or beginning on an ever spinning reel…..’ Theme Song from the Thomas Crown Affair.

This exquisite creature is a Sand Mason.  It is a marine worm that builds a tube from the sea bed with a fringe at the top.  It is only a few centimetres in size. Wheel within a Wheel

Messing around in boats

“Nice? It’s the only thing,” said the Water Rat solemnly as he leant forward for his stroke. “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing—absolute nothing—half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing,” he went on dreamily: “messing—about—in—boats; messing—”

“Look ahead, Rat!” cried the Mole suddenly.

It was too late. The boat struck the bank full tilt. The dreamer, the joyous oarsman, lay on his back at the bottom of the boat, his heels in the air.

“—about in boats—or with boats,” the Rat went on composedly, picking himself up with a pleasant laugh. “In or out of ’em, it doesn’t matter.

Inside, Outside

Church of the Sacred Heart on Clare Island, Co. Mayo, Ireland. A beautiful place. Interestingly the cemetery contains the remains of Canadian airmen who died during the second world war.  When they were originally buried the grave was placed outside the cemetery wall because they were not Catholics.  In more recent, enlightened times, the wall of the cemetery was rerouted so that now the grave is within sacred grounds of the cemetery.Fintan Conferring-3
