Back to County Clare

Max and I went to County Clare over the weekend with our buddy Patrick. We stayed overnight in the adorable town of Ennis where we found a great local pub to sit in and watch the Ireland vs. England rugby match. As Ireland thrashed England, it was great fun to be surrounded by dozens of loud and excited fans--and it made me miss hockey even more! After the game, we listened to some traditional Irish music at a great pub with a roaring fire and plenty of Guinness. A prefect way to spend the evening.

The next day we drove up to the Cliffs of Moher where the shiny new interpretive center had just opened. We all had to battle the wind and I was really glad they had decided to build that wall at the edge of the cliffs. After the cliffs, we took a tour of the Aillwee Caves in the Burren. We saw lots of stalactites and stalagmites and underground waterfalls.

We had a terrific time and it was Max's first trip out West. Plus, it's always great to get out of Dublin for a couple of days. Of course, pictures are up on Picasa Web. Enjoy!

my favorite thing about you and leor these days is the partner pictures in front of every single place you visit. its like i like the places you go, but the partner pictures are really what i look forward to. it excites me that you're both seemingly so into it and even have your signature poses. now please do me a favor and take every single one of those shots and create a special photo album with only those so you can whip it out and spend two hours showing someone, "now this is leor and i in front of the cheese factory at THIS laugher is leor and i in front of a starbucks in israel, look how he has latte on his nose!hahaha...this one is nothing really, just leor and i in front of the taj mahal, you can tell we were having a bad hair day..."

I've been toying with the idea of making a Deb n' Max self-portrait slide show for use at the wedding...but a photo album sounds much, much classier.

I think we have close a hundred of these pictures from over the last 7 years...
