1772 Lighthouse

Family, International, Ireland

As the light was just starting to fade the four of us left our cottage to walk the path to the Ballycurrin Lighthouse on the shore of Lough Corrib near Headford, Co. Galway. The experience of standing inside the compartment that once housed the fire that guided mariners in the late 18th Century and peering through the openings was truly magical as was our leaving of treasures and treats for the fairies in the woods as we walked back to the cottage!

    ☘️ Beautifully written, Karen!
    That was truly magical and an incredible experience with my beloved sisters! The fairies are probably still dancing and talking about that evening and wondering when we will return. ‍♂️

    My sister Lou took that photo in Portrait mode on her brand new iPhone 10! Pretty impressive camera.
