Summer Stock Sunday
I know that to some of you, this might not look like much of a summer picture, but it was not a bad day (for Ireland).
This was taken on a recent visit to Newgrange, Co. Meath, Ireland. Newgrange, or Brú na Bóinne (Mansion of the Boyne) is a prehistoric passage tomb, 5000 years old. Yes, it pre-dates even the Pyramids and Stonehenge.
I'm planning to do a full post on my trip, soon. This was the view from the hilltop where the tomb is located
And an interesting twist to this post is that it was Robin, who hosts Summer Stock Sunday who made me aware of the significance of Newgrange, following her post on it when she visited Ireland! even though I've lived one hour's drive away from it, and my friend lives 20 minutes walk from it, I had never been.
Through Robin's eyes, I saw my own country differently.
