My Birthday!

A travel blog entry by narabouts


... the most scrumptious meal ever. For me, it was seafood chowder to start, followed by hake and vegetables. After a suitably appropriate break I then forced myself to have sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and icecream! Well it is my Birthday! I then felt that I should have an Irish coffee to finish off. Being in Ireland, it would be rude not to! I had an absolutely wonderful Birthday, especially catching up with all of my lovely ...

Shawn brought the sun!

... and decided to have our picnic lunch on the beach. Then we laid down for a little to soak up the sun. Since Shawn has arrived, it has been the most beautiful two days ever.

Chasing Sheep

... ate, and while playing cards afterwards. Late in the night, around 10pm, we walked down to a pub called The Grand that was playing traditional Irish music. Chris and I were chatting with a guy from the east coast of the States for awhile, and then headed back to the hostel around 11:30 to sleep. It's amazing how late the Irish go out... A lot of places don't even start playin music til 10pm... and then don't close til 2pm. When do these people sleep? I don't get it. ...
