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.

Man you are becoming one hell of a photog! These pics are so great. Crystal actually mentioned that Infrared Ancient or JACountryside would look really nice framed in our bedroom (which sorely needs something on the walls). Bravo on all the Europe photos, really man they are so well done. You ready for wedding season???

Ready as I'll ever be. Got my two cameras slung across each shoulder like a gunman's bandolier in the ol' west.
