Visit to Ireland

Ireland turned out to be just so beautiful, everything was perfect, apart from the horrid midgies at Killarney's Lakes and Fells! The little critters got everywhere, even in my hair, when I got home I was scratch, scratch, scratch just like an old flea bitten dog! Not an image you want to read I know. But the beautiful picture shows it almost worth it!

The image you want to know about is rolling hills, crashing waves, luscious green, hedges bursting with flowers and a charming people. Well, yes folks all that was there. We actually stayed in a lovely house, it even had a dishwasher so Kathy would be happy! A washing machine is a necessity for my daughter in law with three kids! It was good to have the familiar sound of the washer going because it reminded me of Florida!

We had the most marvellous time, I shall never forget it. Of course being with the family was the best part. The gorgeous scenery was merely the icing on the cake. And those pesky midgies? Well their horrid bites faded and my memories never will.

Lovely photo! So glad to hear about your trip. I bet midgies are like our 'no see ums.'

I am so glad you had a nice break with your family. And in such a gorgeous place, too. Thanks for giving us a little glimpse. :)

Yes,Kathy, my grandson mentioned they were like no see ums, but these you can vaguely see, tiny but with a whopping bite!

Great blog, Margaret! I'd love to make it to Ireland some day. Have actually planned a trip twice, but had to cancel both times:(

I'm glad you had a good time with your family.
