The Westernmost Point In Europe
Ireland's Slea Head, the westernmost point of continental Europe, slices into the North Atlantic Ocean, pointing West, where so many of it's people sailed in search of prosperity. Some were my own ancestors. Much of my genetic code comes from this land actually. It's true I'm a day dreamer, but I'm pretty sure some part of me recognized that land and air and the smell of the ocean there. And what a beautiful land it is. How hard it must have been to leave it!
