Even in dreary weather, Ireland glows green. Here are a few snapshots from our recent drive around the Rings of Kerry (who knew there were two loops?) and Dingle town.
Snowflakes this morning… what a rare sight in Dublin. It was just a light dusting of flakes, floating peacefully to the ground. They’re mostly gone now.
Waving goodbye to Mom, Leslie, and Heather yesterday, we made a quick last visit to our favorite barn near Highspire, PA. The sun shown gloriously in the sky; it brought this stately barn to life for us once again.
Dave and I are thrilled an organization stepped forward a few years back to save this barn and to get it recognized as a National Historic Landmark. Other beautiful old buildings we love in this area are not faring nearly as well. It’s likely a number of them will be demolished for strip-mall “development” before we return.
Here’s a view from my window at 4:30 pm.
Throughout history, there have always been big solstice parties in Ireland. I mean always. And I mean big.
Seems pretty clear why that is!
I will miss the celebrations here, which is sad, but thankfully I will be home celebrating the light of my life!
