Far away hills are green

Far away hills are green

I am writing this blog from Ireland and I can tell you that it is true, it is very green over here. As a native Irishman and one that spent all of my developing life here, I didn’t appreciate it enough when I was here all the time. It is spectacular here with a wonderful pace to life.

The green, the wildlife, the scenery and the hills are just taking my breath away.

I am sitting in the front room of my brother’s house and I can look out at the Commeragh Mountains and think, wow! I can’t believe I took this for granted for that long. The green, the wildlife, the scenery and the hills are just taking my breath away.

But leaving that behind for a moment and I sit upright for a second and realize that no matter where somebody is, if they are there for long enough, it becomes normal. No matter how good or bad something may be. For someone to drive past the Grand Canyon every day for work, I am pretty sure that they don’t give it a second look. That’s where The Queen’s Cup comes into my head. Everything I have just mentioned with regard to Ireland is relevant and appropriate to say about Charlotte’s Jewel. It is nothing short of spectacular and more people should see it than do see it.

The rolling hills and amazing scenery are within touching distance of so many. Each and every person deserves to see it in all its glory on race day, April 28th, 2018.
