But enough of that! Ireland was wonderful and beautiful and amazing and VERY COLD!!!! Patrick and I did not realize how much we truly have become acclamated to the Arizona desert weather! But we still had an amazing time, met a wonderful and dear couple (Mel and Jane-yes, I mean you two!) and saw some amazing places that we had not yet been. It is incredible that we have gone to Ireland every year for the last seven years and there is still so many places we have yet to see and experience! This was the first time we stayed in one place, normally we drive all around in a big circle of the Southern half of Ireland and stay at a different B&B every night. This time we stayed in Dublin and drove to the places we wanted to see. The one thing that we both said we were dissapointed in was that when we normally go in April, we have hours and hours of daylight. It does not get dark there in April until 9:00 or 9:30 at night. This time, the sun was barely waking at 7:00 a.m and it was back to sleep again by 4:30 or 5:00! It made getting to the places a little more difficult if the drive was long and trying to have some time to spend at the destination too! Of course we made the most of it, we always do. Enjoy the pictures, this is not all of them but it is a good start! I promise to visit your blogs soon to say hello!
Love and light,
Kildare-the site of my favorite Celtic Goddess Brighid-Brighids Well.
People leave offerings of flowers and handmade Brighid's Crosses in the well.
Bright Goddess Brighid and Saint Brighid
Gorgeous pink sunset over the Wicklow Mountains
The most beautiful Grove of trees we saw on this trip! Have I told you lately how much I LOVE trees!
A lovely old Monastic site in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains.
The Druids Seat...
Within a Council of Trees.
It would not be an Ireland trip if I did not photograph some sheep-I just love them!
A lone Fairy Hawthorn tree-I left my offering at the base for the Faeries. It was full of berries!
Just happen to look up upon this mountain and catch some deer I believe, looking back at us!
This waterfall was amazing!!
I want to live right smack dab in the middle of this valley!!
This is where we stayed our entire trip-Clontarf Castle-absolutely beautiful!
The good life...
