Ah Yes My Travels !
The view from my bedroom window in Dingle, do you see the dead man?
The wonderful lakes of Killarney
A beautiful riding stable outside Killarney.
A drag Queen crosses the bridge in Kilkenny.
This house is near where Walter Raleigh lived.
It is said that when he was demonstrating how to use tobacco a servant threw a bucket of water over him because he thought he was on fire! It is a pity he didn't stick his head into the bucket of water and hold him under until hew saw sense.
Interesting tablet in the church, click on the image to read it.
Stained glass window in the church
Old shop front of which there are plenty in Youghal
DeVelera St So narrow, a bit like himself.
Alms houses, 17 something !
There is a depth of wisdom in the expression "Perfect stranger"
Well this implies that when you get to get to know anyone they become far from perfect.
I digress....Perfect strangers tell me that I did not tell you of my travels in Ireland.
Well we went from Dublin to Dingle in Co.Kerry then to Killarney through Cork and down to Youghal. Famous for Boyle of Boyle's law and Sir Walter Raleigh.. then back home through Kilkenny.
You know it is nice to see France or Spain but Ireland is really beautiful at this time of the year, really green and lush.
In foreign lands you would cook in the heat and the insects would eat you alive. I am not just saying that, a home break is great.
Go for it.
