Trip to Ireland

Our spacious coach. Dead cat on Dingle sidewalk. Music is woven in Irish culture. Ring of Kerry shrouded in mist. My Irish lass on the shores of Lahinch. We averaged one photo per 10 kilometers.

Happy to travel abroad (From left: Jackie, Sophie, Fiona and Hester). The Ha'penny Bridge over the River Liffey. Erin Go Bragh!
