To All of Us

What do Tracey, Harry Potter and I have in common? Today's our Birthday!
Had the best phone conversation EVER with my dad today.
It's a good day.

Non-Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Because they took in these views....

Cliffs of Moher
Cliffs of Moher

Inish Moor - largest of the Aran Islands
This place was AMAZING.

Wowza. Cobh Cathedral. The one above it is Blarney Castle, but I can't seem to type next to it. I did kiss the Blarney Stone. Along with 10 million other people.

They are healthy, just enjoying the rare Irish sun.
Beautiful North Atlantic.

II have no idea where this was but it was pretty.

Welsh Beauty

Well, I'm back from the travels. No planes, trains, ships, car trips for awhile. School starts next week so I am essentially grounded until Christmas. Boo. Until then, I have fond memories of yesteryear (or yestermonth).

Tintern Abbey - Henry VIII ordered it burned when the church wouldn't let him get divorced.

Someone's backyard.
There are so many castles in Wales, I honestly don't remember which one this was. Just that we booked a stay on a farm at the Tourist Information Center across the street from it.

Black Mountains to the left. Breacon Beacons National Park to the right.

Incidentally, despite the gorgeousness of Brecon, my sis and I decided that that sounded like a good curse word. i.e. "That Brecon Beacon Traffic!!!"
Seven Falls


Yeah, that clears things up.
