Travel theme: Storm

Here in Ireland we are hunkering down waiting for Ophelia to make landfall, so I’m going with a stormy theme this week, starting off with this shot of a storm moving in over Jamaica Bay Wildlife Reserve in New York.

❤ Ailsa

 Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. – John Muir

Disappointments are to the soul what a thunderstorm is to the air. – Friedrich Schiller

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

      I went out earlier for a sand-blasted walk on the beach, but am now back indoors, showered, in my jammies with a turf fire and a bottle of wine. 🙂 Stay safe yourself Vossie. See you on the other side! ❤

        A turf fire, a bottle of wine… you need a book!! (I can offer a suggestion..) 😉
        Yep! All well here so far! I’ve been tweeting pictures for a few hours… recording the event!

      Ooh, so evocative, Sue, I love it. It’s howling outside right now but I’m tucked up indoors with my dog Scruffy, a college pal, a turf fire and a bottle of wine. All is good. xxx

  9. I like your photos for this week. I shared on Twitter 🙂 Stay safe!

    Hi Ailsa. Loved the colors in the first photo. That green cloud looks very ominous. Hope it’s okay if I share two photos of storms in our area. I guess I’ve been lucky and have never met a bad storm in my travels.

  11. Miriam says:

    Wow, stay safe Ailsa. I should have a stormy post to you by tonight.

  21. A warm hearth, good companions and a glass of wine, while the wind howls outside. Life could get worse. Did the storm cause much damage in your region, Ailsa?
    That sand storm seems mighty strong, great photo!
    Here’s mine:
    Have a calm week(end), dear.

    Storms all over the place just now, Ailsa, and many with such tragic consequences. Here’s my Greek storm, one that has a very excellent outcome:

    A great theme given the crazy weather we’ve had all over the world this year. Tragic for all of us, as it will only increase unless we make huge changes.
    That aside, here is my fairly positive (colourful at least) contribution:
