Week Two Updates
Our second week began with two full days of figure drawing, and a birthday celebration for Anna’s 17th. After a long day in the studio everyone adorned their finest evening attire. Mary’s Pavlova was a hit for desert. Wednesday morning we headed for Kerry VERY early. We arrived in the West before anyone had a chance to wake up. Upon our arrival we boarded a boat for the Great Blasket Island. We spent the day sketching, shooting, trying to hug sheep, and enjoying the wild seals swimming close to the waters edge. The sun was glorious.
For our night in Dingle we enjoyed home made ice cream, fish and chips and a bit of traditional music. The next day we headed for Gallarus Oratory, a 1000 year old chapel constructed entirely of stone with no mortar. To this day the interior remains dry. In a brief trip to the beach Darragh “drew a line to the dead man” with help from Rosie and Will while others explored the rocky terrain. At the end of the day we headed for Cahirsiveen where we witnessed a victory parade and spent a few hours that night taking photographs. The next day we broke up a rainy drive home to the Cow House through the scenic “Ring of Kerry” and a stop in Cork for lunch and a visit to the gallery at the Crawford College of Art.
