Sheep gazing out to sea along Slea Head Drive on the Dingle Peninsula, Ireland.
When I was a teenager I visited Great Britain and Ireland and fell in love with the sheep. While in Scotland, I purchased two mini sheep (about 3 inches tall) with felt-covered legs and faces and fluffy, wooly coats. For many years those two sheep stood on my dresser top reminding me of the sheep of my holiday. Those sheep are now safely in storage until I return to the States. After all, I don’t need daily reminders in my home when I get to see real sheep so regularly in my dreams-turned-reality life.
These images are just a few of sheep I saw while in Ireland.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen another ewe looking as regal as this lady did while caring for her young.
Small steps for a parent may be mighty obstacles for a little one, but knowing that the effort to keep up is how the lamb learns and grows strong makes the struggle a source of endearment.
As if cute, little lambs need any help in the endearment department. I “awww”ed; did you?
Two photos were taken near Slea Head Drive and the other two were taken near Cahergall Stone Fort.
