Sorry I haven't gotten to this in a while. It has been a packed weekend full of sight seeing and exciting events. On top of this all, last night I got to visit a medical center in Ireland because I have strep throat. Luckily, I have been feeling well enough to still do everything that we have had planned. I am very tried and ready for bed, so I am going to give a quick breakdown of what I have been doing.
Friday night we traveled a couple hours by bus to Bunratty castle. While here, we went to a Medieval Banquet where we got to drink soup out of bowls while people sang and played the harp. It was very cool. UNfortunately I have too many pictures on my computer right now and I don't know where I saved those, so I won't have any of those in here
Saturday we went on an all day bus tour of the Connemara and Cong. We saw many castle and beautiful land. Lots of mountains. We saw Kylemore Abbey, which was beautiful. Saturday night we went to see a small play that was fairly entertaining.
Sunday we took a boat ride to the Aran Islands. WE spent the day on Inis Mor. This is an island that still has the old Irish culture on it. Everyone there speaks the Irish language of Gaelic. We got to see an old Viking fort that dates back to 2000 B.C. This was the most amazing site I have ever seen in my life. The fort looked over cliffs that dropped down hundreds of feet to the ocean. It was a very windy day and the possibilty of being blown off was there. Regardless, I got some great shots.
Today we went to Dublin. It was basically a disaster. It is a 3 hour train ride there. We were there for 3 hours, saw about two sites, and spent another 3 hours on the train. Not a good idea and very poorly planned. Dublin seemed great though, I wish we couldve spent more time there.
Ok, I have to upload these pictures and then head to bed.
Happy Birthday to Denise and Annabella. Sorry I missed those earlier. Just to be safe, Happy Birthday to me tomorrow, Happy Birthday Dad, and Happy Mother's Day mom..
Love you all!
