When you take the Titanic Experience in Cobh, Ireland, you will be given a ticket with a real name on it. The name belongs to one of the passengers on board the famous ship. Through the journey, you will find out if you (i.e. the person in the ticket) lived or died.
Here is the ticket I was given and the fate of the person whose name I was given. I quite rather liked it. It made the whole experience fun, even though I was sad to find her sad story.
A piece of art or a picture you say? Righto! Pop came these photographs to my mind. And since I will be on vacation for a fortnight I am scheduling it on Friday night (thanks Linda for the early prompt 😉 ) and I promise I will come back and check out your posts on this prompt later.
A scene at the Fota Wildlife park, Cork, Ireland.
Me: There is supposed to be a Panda bear here. Do you see him anywhere?
Friend: Nope… He might be hiding.
Searching the trees for a while. Almost at the verge of giving up when my friend points me to the tree above.
Friend: There…do you see him? (Points above in the trees)
Me: I only see the tree leaves…Damn..I shouldn’t have removed my zoom lens and packed it in. (It was getting very cold, windy and there was a slight drizzling of rain too at that time)
Friend: Look behind those leaves…
Me: You mean this one?
(Panda : God…won’t she leave me alone in peace?)
Me: Let me try a little bit from here. Might get a good view.
Me: Damn… Why can’t I get the focus right!
(Panda: Still not going to pose for you lady…Why do you think I climbed up all the way here… Go away!)
Me: I will try one more shot and then we will leave him to his sleep
Me: There! Finally! It can’t get any better than this. I am happy with this view. Come on, let’s go.
(Panda: eye roll)
Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “view.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
Mirror, Mirror on my car, who is there following me from afar?
I would love to get up regularly at 6 am and I once was very much a morning person. But nowadays, I get up that early only when I am on a vacation. What does that even say about me? When we stayed in a small and cute cottage in Dunmanway, Cork County, Ireland, I woke up to this view every single day of our week. It was amazing. I just loved it (except for the fact it was this bright by 6 am or so 🙄 )
I wouldn’t mind if every one of my mornings happened to be like this. And I would not also mind going on a long walk and then sit for a while in a bench like this among the wilderness before heading back to the start of the day. I do that even now while on my vacation.
And don’t forget the coffee. That is very very important. I am OK to have Indian Masala Chai sometimes…but my preference would always be coffee.
And followed by a sumptuous breakfast
Well, that covers my morning. What about yours?
Note: All photos are taken at different locations at different times.
After a satisfying visit to Fota Wildlife Park, Cork, Ireland, while on our way back clicked this photograph which I loved among all the whole set of photographs I took in Fota. I love it for the way this one Giraffe stood out and I was able to capture it in its nature. This was definitely a ‘cherry on top‘ moment for me.
And should I go with this one where the Sun looks like a Cherry on top of this small rock formation in Tossa De Mar, Spain ?
