Where I stayed
Casey's Campervan Park
Liam says: "I like when we go to beaches, and I like when we play Legos. It’s the best month of my life! At Skellig Michael I had to go up a thousand steps; the thousand steps were really hard to climb up. It seemed like it was going on and on forever. The little village (the monastery) wasn’t that big. But, it was pretty hard to climb up.
“At Blarney Castle I was scared of kissing the Blarney Stone because I was scared of the height
“I like to eat baguette bread here in Ireland. I like the pizza. I don’t like the fish.
“I’ll see you when I’m back!"
Andy says: “I like going to all the beaches; the beaches are very fun. We’ve gone to about seven or eight beaches. I like when we had the sand castle building contest at Allihies on the beach. Some of the beaches are very wide and very long, like Inch Beach, and some of them are really short and very thin, like Caherdaniel.
“At the Caherdaniel beach, while Mom and Dad were finishing dinner in a restaurant, Liam and I went out to the beach. We had our clothes on, so we couldn’t get in the water. Liam ran back to the restaurant and came back without his clothes but with his underwear on. Then he went away again and came back totally naked! We played in the water after we took our clothes off
“On the boat ride back from Skellig Michael, we saw two Basking Sharks. They were about as big as Dad. At the Caherdaniel beach, I saw a lot of jellyfish, and I touched a lot of them. I picked one up and showed it to Mom, and she kind of screamed.
“The hot cocoa here is very different, and it never tastes the same to me. The reason I’m drinking hot cocoa here in June is that is rains a lot here and it’s very cold. It seems very rainy to us, because we’re used to not so much rain.
“Even though we’re at the beach a lot, I don’t see many palm trees because we’re farther north than Colorado. I lost my sense of direction; I can’t tell which way is north or south, east or west. Some days, like today, I can’t see the sun, and I don’t have any landmarks memorized yet.”
Both boys would LOVE to hear from friends! They have met a few friends at beaches and campgrounds as we travel, but Irish children are still in school June, so there aren’t that many kids around.
