I've gone to wonderful and amazing places! Like Giant's Causeway:
And Glenveagh Castle and Gardens:
And the Waterford Crystal Factory Tour:
And the Old Midleton Whiskey Distillery:
And the Blarney Stone!
Did you know that in order to kiss the Blarney Stone you have to hang backwards over the edge of a very tall castle while an old, whistling Irish man grasps your midsection? Because you do.
My mom has been visiting from California this week, and she brought the sunny skies with her. We've been touring Ireland in our trusty rental car and having a brilliant time (as they say here). The days have simply flown by, and, sadly, Mom goes home tomorrow. But she definitely got her fill of sheep, scones and thick Irish brogues. Come back any time, Mom!
