... bite of lunch we did a bit more shopping. As usual, I am now blogging while everyone else naps! Something is wrong with this arrangement.

I think we're going to a concert tonight. Then the guy that plays the pipes is at one of the pubs close to us tonight also. I probably won't go; it doesn't start until 9:30.

The scones (tea biscuits) are excellent, I could easily eat every one that was put out for all the guests. I also have taken a liking to porridge with Baileys. :-) We walked the town ducking in and out of the various shops. ...

It's a good thing we were told that the Irish just do that...we probably would have started an international incident if we'd said "shhh". One night in Dingle, we had a private concert of Lumiere, 2 women and a guitar that ...
