My sunshine girls this morning at Ashford castle in Cong as we set out on our tour of Connemara.
Pictured in the gardens with the castle in the background.
Happy at last....Cam at the bar in Ashford. What a difference a little tipple makes to ones
Deep in the heart of the Maam Valley, the ladies beside this signpost with the place names in both Irish and English. Today was spent mainly teaching them the Irish for Whiskey.
Susan and Cam at the fjord in Leenane.
Three happy campers at Kylemore Abbey.
Here we are on the Sky Road near Clifden with the offshore islands in the Atlantic behind us.
Susan finds a bakery. You cannot say that my job does not provide me with variety.
Now you see why the bakery? These delicious home baked pastries are all loaded with fresh cream. Irish cream that is....completely fat free...low calories....guaranteed to give you that vital energy boost. Another good reason to come to Ireland. I actually forgot to take a photo of the girls lunch plates as we had lunch here also....what a shame.
The main street in the popular town of Clifden.
Susan showed a particularly strange interest in this place and expressed an interest in possibly purchasing it. She said that maybe she might consider opening an Irish branch here. Why?
There is nowhere like Ireland for wild flowers and here you see the ladies at Ballinahinch Castle with the Hydrangeas in full bloom in the background.
The Ballinahinch river as seen from the back of the castle.
Tomorrow we are off to the south....destination Killarney. We are having fun.
