Marcie, Johnna, Karen and Robin,under this magnificent old tree in the gardens at Muckross House in Killarney the other day.
These gardens were especially prepared for the arrival of Queen Victoria when she visited Killarney back in the eighteen hundreds. The assortment of lovely flowers and shrubs and trees here make Muckross House a must to visit.
The ladies are all at home once again,safe and well, after their Irish adventure. I do miss them all, as they were great company, and we laughed a lot.
I start my next tour this coming Wednesday with two couples from Milton Mass. I know that they are all excited after having followed my Texan ladies tour and they will be touring many of the same areas.
Something cropped up on this last tour which the ladies asked me to mention on my Blog which might be important for anybody coming our way. If you are bringing cash in the form of US dollars, beware of bringing One Hundred Dollar bills as they are hard to cash. There has been a big problem with these particular bills as there have been many forgeries. As far as i know all the other dollar bills are OK but even the banks do not want to touch the hundreds.
You have no problem with most credit cards, eventhough American Express are not accepted in a lot of places.
The weather has not been the best this month so far, and it is unusually cold here for this time of the year. This month has been a mix of rain and sunshine, but never feeling very warm. Make sure you bring your warm sweaters, boots, and light rainwear, and you will be fine. Hopefully we will see a rise in temperatures as this month progresses.
If you want me, or just advice, drop me a line. I will always try to help if i can.
