Kinsale Part IV

Just outside the town was Charles Fort which protected the town through history. I liked the view of the water through the arch of the entrance. I nearly blew away painting this one. lol

This is another view looking out from the harbor. The land is so green.

This gem down by the harbor looked like it needed a little TLC, but I imagine
that it had a wonderful view of the area.

We went to Kitty O Se's a second night to hear traditional Irish music.
They started out with 3 musicians and over the course of the evening 3 more musicians 
came in and sat down to join them. Then another musician from the USA who had her clarinet in her hotel room joined in. It was really a fun night.


  1. What a wonderful travel collection you must have Joan, your paintings are treasures for sure.

  2. I love the view through the arch, too!

  3. It's a real pleasure to see all these pictures. Right now I dont have time to do anything myself due to work, so looking at other blogs like yours sustains me. They capture the essence of the place beautifully!!

  4. The harbor gem reminded me instantly of what I would expect to see in CA. What a trip, Joan! I am loving seeing it through your eyes.

  5. Glad you are enjoying my view of Ireland. Thanks Lorraine, Tina, Kevin, and Sherry!
