You?re bringing back fond memories of sights from the other end of my
visual memories.
Back in the 1990s I worked overseas for a few years. New Orleans to
Nigeria, Angola or Kazakhstan was my itinerary.
One trip, on a gorgeous, clear midday I was treated to a fabulous view of
the southern end of Ireland. Please fill in the counties I was looking at.
I remember green, dark rocks and white surf. And no camera handy.
Ireland is truly spectacular on a clear day from 30+ thousand feet!
