We're home from Ireland. All attempts to post photos and trip experiences was a bust. I don't know if it was the fairies messing with us or just problems at Blogger. In any case now that I'm home I want to post some of our photos so you can see how magical the Emerald Isle is. Here goes. This is the River Owen Reigh just down the lance from where we stayed in Dromore. It's so peaceful and calm and beautiful. The next photo is of an Ogham Stone, the oldest Celtic language of lines. This was out in a field and it was pouring rain, cold and howling wind. And I'm laughing! The cliffs are Slieve League, the highest cliffs in Europe on the North Atlantic and the most gorgeous. A truly awesome sight to look at. It was too wild to take a boat out to see them from the water. The Carndonagh Standing Stones and Cross are ancient and claimed by Christians and Pagan. To look at it tells you it is many thousands of years old. The face is primitive and powerful and very mystical. There is a photo of John and I huddled together agains the wind on the road to Dunfanaghy also on the North Atlantic. We looked cold. We were!
More photos later. I want to make sure these get up without any glitches.
