More photos......

I'll be posting some pictures of my stamp projects for my club on Friday. I don't want to post them before-hand since they don't meet till Thursday night. So I thought I'd share some more photos from my trip. Today I wanna share some pictures of the Kinsale region of Ireland. This was one of my favorite places on the tour. It's a small harbor town with lots of great little shops and places to eat. This was, by far, the best place to eat- in my opinion. The food in Ireland isn't all that great, but we had lunch at a little place n Kinsale and it was AWESOME!!!!



This is Don Herlihy. He was our local guide in Kinsale. He explained all about the Spanish Armada coming to Kinsale and the Charles Fort- a star-shaped fort that was built to protect the harbor. I enjoyed his tour very much. I'm not much on history, but he had the cutest Irish accent and I enjoyed listening to him speak about the harbor- he was a wonderful guide.
These trees line most of the roads in Ireland- they are everywhere. They are called Hawthorne trees ( or fairy trees, as they are affectionately known as in Ireland). It is bad luck to trim them or cut them down so they are abundant- and very beautiful!!! I'm gonna be looking for one of these to plant in our yard.

This is mom and I at the Fort. We didn't walk along for the guided tour because our local Kinsale guide had been so thorough at explaining how the whole thing worked that we just wanted to walk around and enjoy the beautiful view................

And it was just that- beautiful! We even saw a dolphin jumping around in the water following the boats that were coming in and out.

Tomorrow I'll be sharing some pictures of my other favorite place on the tour- the Dingle Peninsula. And then I'll share some stamping with you! Stay tuned..............
