I bought this book in the year 2000 started reading it and put it back on the shelf.  I have brought it out again to finish.

It’s an intriguing  book on Irish history,   the cover picture was my deciding factor on purchasing it.  There is a picture of Skellig Michael.   Skellig Michael is  an island located off the coast of County Kerry.   A place that is on my bucket list to visit and I would like to do it within the next 5 years.  ( I am not getting any younger)  I would need very sturdy legs and to be in somewhat good shape to do the walk to the top.  For me its an important pilgrimage.   It is only reached by boat,  and the calmest of seas on the coast does not mean that the island will be attainable.  

The book relates to the reader the lives of the Monks who lived on this rocky island for 600 years.  They live in what is called Bee-Hive huts, without foot ware.   It will explain how they lived and why they left.

Well I was very disappointed when I finished the sewing.    As you can see I need to remove one of the cats and it will be turned around.  I thought I would have it done today but tonight I will rip it apart and tomorrow finish it.

Why I did realize this yesterday is beyond me.

 

I hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.       Carole
