Magic Things in Co. Waterford I’m still keeping a close eye on the swans and their cygnets out around the River Anne and I simply had to check on them as evening was closing in today. There were all sorts of surprises awaiting me: An Old Friend on Golden Waters Folded Note Fairy Correspondence Burnished Dunhill Castle Watchful Eye New Lovers The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.

Funny you should include a photo of Dunhill Castle. I just put together an album from one of my trips to Ireland and have some pretty photos of that castle. My husband was quite smitten with it. It has been on my mind and I couldn’t remember the name of it! Thank you!
My pleasure! I must say I can’t blame him from being smitten with it. I live a few miles from Dunhill and find the castle and the valley incredibly relaxing and always different from the last time I was there (which could have been only yesterday!).
It was a very peaceful area that I enjoyed driving through immensely.
I think it would be very hard not to like it!
I loved everything about his post! The fairy correspondence was sweet, but my favorite was the stone bridge with the watchful eye. 🙂
Hi Suz, thanks for writing. Yes, that stone bridge is a gem. I’ve been trying to catch it with the sun coming through for ages now and there it was gazing right at me today.
Truly delightful especially the fairy correspondence!
I thought that would appeal to you, Willow. xx
You were right;
I must get to Ireland someday. It looks beautiful ❤️ Plus I’m of Irish descent!
Hi Reena, it would be great if you could come. Ireland doesn’t disappoint.
What a magical place! xo
Glad you like it, Luanne.
What a nice catch that Stonebridge. I had to enlarge the photo to see the perspective. Well done.
Hi Anaratte, so glad that photo appeals to you. It was a ‘catch’ alright.
I love those photos that appear something different at first.
Yes, there’s a lot to be said for being a bit puzzled as a first time viewer.
Love it all, especially the fairy letter..we all need a little bit of magic in our lives.
We certainly do need a bit of magic. Hope you find some over the coming days.
Such lovely photos…wonderful story too 🙂
Many thanks, Arlene.
Oh how I love the fairy house and note! 🙂
Hi Lorrie, I must say I felt a bit of an intuder opening up the note but I just couldn’t resist. It was all a bit like a message in a bottle.
Oh yes! You had to open it!
I suppose so!
Some gems there Jean. The castle and the river bridge in particular. Your Dad’s skills have certainly been passed on.
I can hear Dad laughing in the background. He had one helluva laugh!
Wonderful sunny day. Love the fairy letter 🙂
More magical light and how wonderful to come across the fairy correspondence 🙂
The fairy correspondence had my heart beating pretty fast.
