Thumbin' to Westport

A travel blog entry by thekansasnomad on Jul 28, 2014

... going to make a collage some day, per our clever suggestion.
At some point, Jenny arrived home. Nearly the first thing she asks is, "Have you guys cleaned up the apartment?.."

... had honeymooned in Connemara and she fell in love with the area. So Mr. Henry bought it for his wife. The house is very large and sits at the base of a mountain beside a lake. A mile from the house is the largest walled Victorian garden in Ireland and it was well worth the time to tour it. They ran shuttle buses between the house and the garden.
