There’s usually no words needed when i take photos on a blessed walk of sherkin and then go home to look at them. Today is no different. This island is such a special place for lots of reasons but mostly because of the people who come here. xx
It’s always interesting and an inspiration, to walk around the island to see whats in the hedgerows of Sherkin Island. Its good for the soul.
Suffice it to say I love living on Sherkin Island. Not to be too dramatic but it’s a dream come true. The journey started 10 or so years ago when I saw a program on Nationwide RTE and was hooked. Art holidays with Cora Collins and Majella O Neill for starters, and then the DIT Visual Art Degree Program for 4 years followed by a permanent move from Dublin and the rest is history.
Walking on the island is an inspiration and taking photos of whatever catches my eye and observing the colours inspires me to crochet with lots of lovely yarn shades and yarn textures and create with beautiful colours. Not bad as they say in Cork.
Some photos taken on a lovely walk to Cow Strand which is a beautiful beach on Sherkin Island. The sea was wild and wonderful, with the foam looking like suds as it was blown on the sand. The light was fab and I met a lovely curious cow on the way. Keep an eye out on the website, as photos will be available for purchase, very shortly, in variable sizes.

I went down to the pier today to post some orders and also indulged myself by taking a few photos on this glorious October day on Sherkin Island
Norman and Bebe are great pals. They look out for each other . This photo was given to Norman as a gift for his recent 80th birthday. Everyone on Sherkin island was invited to the party.
It was great evening held in The Jolly Roger
