We were up early and had a nice breakfast at our hotel before heading out to see the Connemara region. It was a little rainy when we set out and the forecast called for rain all morning and likely in the afternoon as well. The clouds made the landscape look really nice, but it didn't photograph well. It's such a different area from the rest of Ireland. It was very rocky and there were little lakes and ponds everywhere. We had a nice drive up ...
... as a full rainbow appeared in the sky. From there we stopped by Ballintoy Harbour, which was also featured in "Game of Thrones" as Pyke Harbour in Theon Greyjoy's home, the Iron Islands.

If you're old enough, you'll remember it as Bloody Sunday. ...
... could only see the tops of the surrounding mountains. We thought that we had reached the top, because the only thing higher than us was an unclimbable, verticle peak next to us. On closer inspection, we noticed moving specks on the mountain and realized that the unclimbable peak was Croagh Patrick. The trail was all loose rock and at about a 45 degree angle. Papa decided that it was more than we wanted to tackle because the descent would be too treacherous, not to mention the ascent. We ...
