Ep 26: Seeing stars, rainbows and the future
Have you ever noticed the rainbows that come from holding a piece of cut crystal to the light? The refraction is beautiful…every time. And at the Waterford Crystal factory they are everywhere! The crystal there fills a huge showroom, and the factory is amazing to tour. I really thought it would be automated…but they make it by hand. From the stemware to trophies, clocks and statues.
Not to be outdone, Mother Nature holds her own sparkly show any night the skies are clear, at the Blackrock Castle Observtaory in Cork. It’s a castle with a colorful past and an unexpected future.
All that plus A Broad Abroad in Episode 26 of Erin’s Isle.
