We're In Killarney

>> Tuesday, March 04, 2008

Hello!

Well, I'm sitting in an internet cafe in Killarney loading one photo at a time into Blogger because five seem to be too much for it ta handle right now.

We drove into Killarney yesterday afternoon. Luckily I didn't really have much planned outdoors along the way because we had an afternoon of this:



Yep, that's snow. It hasn't snowed here in over 15 years...

I had really wanted to visit Ardmore, mostly because I absolutely love Nora Roberts' Irish Trilogy . Not in the snow, thankyouverymuch. We made a quick stop in Cork to visit the English Market and grab some lunch. There is a bistro upstairs that is wonderful- as it should be with all the fresh food available just down stairs.

Today dawned much nicer and after a bit of shopping in Killarney (because I had to get my family's Aran sweater) we took a jaunting cart ride.

The ride took us through parts of Killareny National Park and to Ross Castle. Brenna was very happy- she was asking when we could see another castle.


After naps and dinner (I found a place that served fish & chips and pizza) we did a bit of driving and I took the family to see Torc Waterfall.

There's a bit of a walk up to it so I hid pennies on the way up and Brenna & Caelan found them on the way down. I told them that the faeries left them...

It looks like you guys are having a lot of fun. Did you think you were going to get away from the snow?

You can't get away from the snow, can you?

Jody,

I'm so glad you were able to check in. I prayed for you Friday, knowing we were traveling at the same time. Have fun!!
