Music, Work, Life, the Universe and some other bits in between ..

Greg Canty & Brendan Canty

Do you fancy hanging out for the day?” Brendan suggested on the phone.

It’s a miracle …both my 24 year old son Brendan (check out his cool video/music production business Feel Good Lost) and yours truly had a day when other halves and work did not get in the way!

Charles Fort - Kinsale

The sun was shining, we bought ice creams and headed off in the car in the direction of Kinsale and turned the music up loud ..

We chatted about music, work, life, the universe and a few bits in between.

We did the coastal walk from Charles Fort as far as we could go until nettles got the better of our bare white legs – shorts were not a good idea for that stroll!

I watched as my son, this young man walked ahead of me …how did he end up being 24 so quick?

We chatted some more about music, work, life, the universe and a few other bits in between.

Catch of the Day - Kinsale

I’m starving” he declared … how about that guy on the bridge past Kinsale on the way to Garretstown who goes fishing a few days and then sells what he catches the other days?

Catch of the Day didn’t disappoint as we sat in the glorious sunshine on the wooden bench and munched down the Haddock, Hake and chips …. the wait was punishment (we were famished!) but so well worth it.

We chatted some more about music, work, life, the universe and a few other bits in between.

Brendan Canty

We moved onto the Speckled Door pub on the way to the Old Head of Kinsale and Brendan bought the drinks … we enjoyed a pint of Murphy’s and Bulmers respectively out the back as we looked out over the incredible view of Kinsale and watched a few young couples play with their kids (I remember when he was that young). It’s a pity Ellen (my fab daughter) couldn’t be with us today.

We chatted some more about music, work, life, the universe and a few other bits in between.

Last stop was the incredible Old Head … Brendan took me to a spot at the side of the cliffs. We stumbled upon two girls sunbathing topless and tried to walk past discreetly – I was so discreet I slipped and fell on my backside (big red face)!!

I politely stood up and continued on my way pretending I was all “cool”…

Old Head of Kinsale

We sat and watched over this stunning view and pondered… we listened to and watched the birds (different types!) swoop in and out of the cliff face.

We watched the waves roll into the cliff face and contemplated how the thousands of years of activity has eroded the rock. The water was crystal clear.

We chatted some more about music, work, life, the universe and a few other bits in between.

Eventually it was time to go … we drove back to Cork and went back to our other lives.

We had the greatest father and son day, we didn’t quite drive a JCB but we did chat about music, work, life, the universe and a few other bits in between.

Thanks Brendan …let’s make sure we do that again sometime soon x

Greg Canty is a dad and a partner of Fuzion

    That was funny.. I’m in Cork over twenty years and have never seen topless sunbathers.. well female ones anyway. Beautiful pictures and lovely story.:-)

  2. Fergal Bell Says:

    It sounds like a day that’ll live happily in your memory for a long time.

    It’s good to take the time off some days and relax, doing something a bit laid back.

    Like Anne, I can’t believe there are topless sunbathers in Cork. I’m guessing they were from the Continent!
