Holiday Snaps!

Well, I promised some holiday snaps and here they are. Ireland was wonderful, beautiful, and at times, extremely dangerous. A lovely visit was had by all. Enjoy!














Not many people know that Ireland is completely covered by the ruins of a giant castle. Bloody Cromwell!

Unfortunately, our hotel suite was under repair during our visit. Still, we enjoyed the rustic quality of it all.

Eye candy. In a country this gorgeous, they can't all be jokes.

**********















I took this pic at the Cliffs of Moher, just beyond the sign that says "Do not go beyond this point." Tourists from a variety of nations were ignoring the sign. I've never heard the word "jump" in so many different languages.

**********















A typical Irish beach.

**********















Not many people know that Ireland is littered with miniature villages populated by the little people. Watch where you trod!

**********















If you're ever in Doolin, County Clare, I heartily recommend McDermott's pub. Best Bangers and Mash I had on the trip and fab Guinness, as well. The missus had fish and chips and they were outstanding. The Littlest Fando had a burger. It was huge, all Irish beef, and she loved it.

**********















More eye candy: Ladies View, just south of Killarney. As you may have guessed, the ride into Killarney was beautiful, but very bumpy.

**********















A typical Irish rural highway. Mind the sheep!

**********














I've always wondered if Irish dogs sound different from American and British dogs. He didn't make a peep though. He just stood there, occasionally taking a pull from his pipe.

**********















Irish farmland. Tough hoeing, indeed!

You have not heard Inna Gotta Da Vida until you've heard this bloke play it.
