Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge – Kylemore Abbey, Ireland

I am still sifting through photos from my recent trip to Ireland.  Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge presented a fine time to bring out and highlight the attached photo.  Kylemore Abbey is a jewel of Ireland.  The abbey and grounds are nothing short of spectacular.  One can explore the abbey, walled gardens, and mountain and lake hikes.  Beyond the small church on the grounds is this odd ball sculpture.  It is said that one must stand in the palm of the hand and throw a rock backwards.  If the rock makes it beyond a large boulder then the thrower will benefit from good luck!  I feel like I have good luck from just seeing this strange hand fighting its way from the earth.  Can you imagine stumbling upon this alone in the dark?  I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do.

    • Thanks so much! I loved it. And I had no idea it was there. It wasn’t on the map or I hadn’t seen it anyway. I just walked up on it and took a double take. Thanks for visiting my page and for the comment. You are very welcome any time.
