Kerry offers the most spectacular views, and it's easy to forget that there are plenty of smaller delights right under your nose if you care to look, such as this little plant growing in a crevice of rock on Valentia Island:

Back in Portmagee Harbour I indulged my particular obsession with the wooden crates which the fishermen use to catch lobster. They have wonderful colour and texture both when wet and dry, and are festooned with ropes which also hold a particular fascination for me:

So at the moment I'm looking forward to September by looking back to last October, keeping the memories alive and the creative juices ticking over at the same time!
