An indoor market under a futuristic curved roof with skylights. If feels cathedral-like. A rain-slicked paved street betweeen buildings, one of which is a Romanesque church. Three four-storey buildings in a row with so many repeating window panes it's like a geometric pattern. The middle building is particularly ornate. Waves batter a headland that supports a lone lighthouse under a cloudy sky.

Exploring A Coruña.

Sunset over a sandy beach with buildings on one side and waves on the other. A dramatic grey sky above a beach with crashing waves. Rocks and waves of turquoise water. Buildings overlooking the rocks and waves under a dramatic cloudy sky.

Strolling along the beach in A Coruña.

Two fiddlers, Frances and Maryanne, eyes closed in concentration as they play together in a cosy living room.

Had a lovely afternoon playing jigs and reels.

Looking down on a fluffy tabby cat curled up on a pink blanket, its front paws extended as if to type on a keyboard, but actually resting on the back paws.

Coworking. #NotMyCat

Two fluffy Tibetan spaniels, one lying on a chair, the other lying in its bed, both looking comfy.

Sleepy doggos.

A cosy tableau of cheeses in the foreground, with a glass of red wine to the side and a roaring fire in the background.

Cheese, wine, and fire. 🧀 🍷 🔥

A roaring fire in the hearth, all Halloween orange and chimney red.

Having a cosy Christmas Eve by the fire. 🔥

About thirty musicians, many of them dressed festively, playing many different instruments flanked by a Christmas tree and a large cuddly toy.

Arrived into Cork airport to the sound of trad tunes! 🎶🎻☘️

Jessica on the beach clutching a colourful beach towel, looking back over her shoulder at a lifeguard tower on a sandy beach under a clear blue sky. Jessica and Lola (a lovely old dog) sitting in the sun in the back yard. Two fish tacos and a wedge of lime.

Bidding farewell to San Diego.

Looking down at my feet standing on a slab emblazoned with words Jack Kerouac in Western and Eastern alphabets.

Hey, Jack Kerouac

A brick wall emblazoned with the word SALOON and above it, a large illustration of a pointing finger.

Saloon manicule.

A piper and mandolinist playing in a nice home, both seated in front of a desk that has some other musical instruments in front of it.

Playing tunes at a house session in San Diego.

A low winter sun in a clear blue sky illuminates a sandy beach with the silhouettes of people walking by the sea. An unoccupied lifeguard tower painted with the number five at the edge of a sandy beach under a clear blue sky. A headland next to a beach with shallow water making a reflective surface under a clear blue sky. A lifeguard tower in front of some rocks reflected in the shallow water on a sandy beach.

Greetings from San Diego, California.

A beautiful colourful arrangement of sliced salmon, tuna, mackerel and scallop with seaweed on dark slate.

Delicious Irish sashimi.

Palm trees against a tropical sky, like opening shot of Apocalypse Now. A wooden house at the edge of a swamp at sunset. Jessica on a pink bike on a sandy beach, wrapped up warm. A rickety pier on the water on a clear day with shrimp boats moored in the background.

Bidding farewell to Florida.
