Re-living grander times

The hotel although in need of a bit of TLC spoke of grand times and its history to The Titanic. Our suite, although we had no view as all the rooms overlooking the water were gone, it was easy to be transported back in time. OK the towels and linen have seen better days, as had the rooms, but we were pleased with our choice. It was worth exploring the hotel to spy some of the beautiful old furniture and photos of a different time. Cobh itself is in need of a spruce up but we loved it. Had a very peaceful night's sleep after a very delicious potato and leek soup for dinner.

... ending up at the Cunard Building. The Lusitania was owned by Cunard. It was sunk on May 7th, 1915. Both the survivors and the bodies were brought here after the sinking and many were buried here. In one half of the building is an exhibit on the Lusitania and the other half is an old time photo shop. After checking out the exhibits we continued our waterfront walk to the town clock. Walking inland, back toward the ship we stopped at ...

... Despite this there is a man whose job is to hurry everyone through the process to avoid a backup. "Quickly now -on your back, grab the rails on both sides, head back, kiss the stone, up you get - next!". While you are manhandled into position a photographer takes a shot - all in less than 10 seconds. The kisser by partaking in this ritual is meant to be bestowed the gift of eloquence of speech. Will have to wait and see... Whilst the castle experience was fun, we were not ...

... given by Professor Angela John on one of her special areas of expertise, Margaret Mackworth, or Lady Rhondda. It was a very interesting talk and she included a BBC recording of Lady Rhondda speaking about her rescue by fishermen on the Bluebell. Professor John also made special mention of grandpa's granddaughters being in the audience and we got a round of applause. Kent was able to catch up with Deborah from the museum ...

... Very strong with an acid taste. First bad coffee since we left home.

First photo stop, purely by chance, was a very old church and cemetery. I saw a couple of headstones, barley readable, dated about 1770. As you can see the graves are very close and don't appear to follow the guide posted at the gate.

Soon after we turned the corner and THERE IT WAS! ...

Up early and made breakfast. Must have been the extra hour's sleep. Have docked in Cobh (pronounced Cove - Irish you know, or more precisely Gaelic) in Cork. It is a beautiful day today, the sun is shining, there is no wind, and definitely no sign of rain, all of which we had here on Saturday. Temperature is 16 degrees, again about double that of Saturday. Johnny has decided to catch the ...
