OK so really, Bantry is really pretty but it's the kind of pretty
that tends to gall after a bit , like too much sweet and I found
myself sneering at the magnificent and verdant views around every
corner...I mean Bord Failte really needs to give that shit a rest so we
all don't get burned out on the twee factor ,I would advise throwing in
the occasional landfill or penitentary just so to break up the monotony
of the rolling green hills and picturesque thatched stone cottages
surrounded by Lambs gently bleating..UUghhh Anway Oliver's Mom
picked us in town and off we went ,her name is Marlise and she is also
of Swiss German extraction but has lived in Bantry as long as I have
known her..I hadn't actualy seen her in almost 20 years but I had
spend a great deal of time at her house along with several other
runagates and knaves of my aquataince, so she after a few awkwards
moments we were all talking and laughing and it was as if the years in
between had never gone by . Her house is amazing and I will provide
evidence of this fact asap..it is perched atop a mountain with views of
Bantry Bay and more mountains behind ,It had 3 bedrooms, two baths a
kitchen ,a living room and a conservatory which in my mind was the
absolute best spot in the house, When we first arrived it was raining
and the cloud was hanging over the mountain so the house was engulfed
in a thick fog while the rain came down pretty fierce. I felt as if I
was aboard a ship. Oliver's sister had also come down to visit with her
son Dylan,(pictured above) naturaly the last time I saw her she was
still in primary school , shocking that she is now a beautifull and
accomplished adult with a son in tow.. Dylan..well he deserves and
entire chapter of his own.. He really likes rap and breakdancing so
naturaly I tried to teach him some Capoeira movements which almost lead
to some serious injury as I feared it might given his shall we say
strong personality...ok so I need to go to bed but I will be popping
back in to add to this behemoth task as I can... thanks for your
