Today we left Galway for Connemara, and our first stop there today was the wonderful Ashford castle in Cong county Mayo.
Paul and Nancy, pictured in the grounds of Ashford, with the castle in the background. The weather today was gorgeous and i think that my friends will be returning home with lovely sun tans.
Pictured outside the entrance to the castle with this fine Irish Wolfhound.
This was a really wonderful day, and we could not have been in a nicer place in the glorious sunshine.
Tomorrow we are promised more of the same as we make our way to the Cliffs of Moher, and finally on to Killarney later.
Nancy and Paul send their regards to everybody at home, and to their special friends James and Liz,who recommended me to them.
Thank you James and Liz, for sending me such a lovely couple.
