Would you believe that we've had the most beautiful run of weather here in Ireland? Everyone warned me of horrible nasty weather and I came prepared mentally - and with plenty of winter clothes.
So far, we've had nothing but sunshine.
I love it.
Have hired a car for the last 4 days and we're back in Dublin tonight after seeing too much beauty.
Cliffs and rolling hills and millions of Pubs and castles, castles and more castles.
Today I waded my way into the Blarney Castle.*** It was SOOO expensive to get it, so I decided not to kiss that Blarney stone (ewww! a gazillion germs!) - but when I realized I could take a little swim in the river and end up at the castle for FREE, well, who am I to say no to a swim eh? (Still wiping those germs off, though)
Then I got a ride in a police car. But that was because, um, we ran out of fuel, and the very nice police man gave us a lift.
I want to live in sunny Ireland. The Police men are so friendly :)
** My Mother would like to be noted that she did not bring me up to wade my way into castles....
