As we prepared to leave Ireland and return to the United States, I was still processing our amazing trip. Through friends, East Coast met West Coast and we shared a castle for a week. How fun it was to meet and make new friends, cook together every evening, tour small towns, eat in fabulous little nooks each day, exercise each morning and evening together, (dark didn't come until 10:00pm or later), play Bridge, catch up on reading, visit beautiful gardens, check out restored castle residences of the "very rich" AND do all of this with special friends. Steve and I are so lucky.
Goodbye Ireland, I am totally in love with your beautiful country.
P.S. All of that luggage did fit in that medium sized car!!
