Rooster at the Lucky Star Bar, Aran Islands, Ireland

“Nearly all the best things that came to me in life have been unexpected, unplanned by me.”
- Carl Sandburg

This was one of those unexpected sights. On my trip over to Ireland this past summer, we took the ferry over to the Aran Islands. We stayed overnight at the largest island, taking a long walk during the day. In a land with much green & blue, there was this brilliantly colored pub where these fabulous chickens were strutting all around! A big dark shiny rooster with amber colored feathers near his head, was napping on the wall of the courtyard in the front of the pub. It was mid-afternoon and the place was closed up tight. But the whole scene just struck me as quite funny!
