Ireland and such

Second leg of the trip was Ireland to visit Susie's side of the family. They were a great bunch of people, the epitome of hospitality and generosity and they almost had to sweep us out the door to get rid of us. Still coming off of a pretty strong "full Irish breakfast" addiction, but I think all will be well.

Infrared Ancient

Guinness store house. This place was fun, mainly because of the promise of free beer at the top. Kinda like a grown man's Willy Wonka.

Of course we did a lot of this:

Just another countryside.

Of course, you have to stay in a castle if you can. This is Lough Rynn Castle, known far and wide for having a thermostat to control the temperature of the shower.

Walled Gardens at the castle.

Aged boathouse.

I wish all my sunrises were like this... well, without the cold.

All in all a grand ol' time in Europe, but spring is here and it's time to get busy. Be back soon.
