The water around the island is very calm--like BBL. Great! On the way over, we saw ...
... to meet one of her sorority sisters in Dublin... interesting! She left to get on her train, and we waited, ready to head out!
Finally, at 12 we got on the train and took a 25 minute ride to Cobh. When we arrived it was a little chilly and gray, but still adorable, nonetheless! We went into the visitors center to get our maps so we knew our way around! We found out later that Cobh is so small, we didn't even need maps! The man in the visitor center was very cute ...
