Ecological imagination in Cork

Absolutely beautiful. Absolutely freezing. Thank you for showing us how to enjoy nature in Cork. Paschal and I met not long ago on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. Ask me about that fun trip and experience. We both live in Ireland. I’m in Dublin. He’s in Cork. We share a love of swimming in the Irish sea. Paschal genuinely cares about Cork. His relationship with nature and all things Cork has inspired me to plan a visit. Will we enter into the freezing winter Celtic sea? I think so.

The world is not just in a pandemic, it’s also in an ecological crisis. How are you enjoying and protecting nature’s beauty? Have you considered that really caring for our common home 🏡 is one way to practice environmental justice.

The River Lee in this video is located in the Celtic Sea at Cork Harbour mouth. The ecology of the Celtic sea is interesting. It has a rich fishery and four cetacean species including minke whale, bottlenose dolphin, short-beaked common dolphin and harbor porpoise.

The following scripture came to my mind;
“He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water,
Which yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither;
And in whatever he does, he prospers.”

Psalm 1:3

  1. In Mexico a diving instructor asked me where I normally dive. I said Ireland.

    “That’s near France isn’t it?”

    “Yes”.

    “I dived in cold water once. It was off San Diego, California. Absolutely freezing.”
