I've arrived.

Walking the fields of my dreams. Ireland.

The cell does not work at all, and my computer access will be limited as I didn't bring a laptop. (Work has no way to contact me, what a concept :-)

I got a few hours sleep in Dublin by the airport then it's time to head out in a rental car. Ive got it for at least 10 days so a lot of ground can be covered, or not, the joy of no itinerary.

I'd forgotten how mystically beautiful this country is, and how incredibly nice the people are.

Have a great time.
That photo looks like Donegal to me.

Sitting here listening to ian Dury singing "O Donegal"...talk about synchronicity!

I'm in Co. Antrim...hope the weather is nice down south.

Brigid, If you would , as you sit on the crest of a hill overlooking what God has made and as the beauty sinks in know that I wish that I were there to see it too. From my maternal grandfather we were from there too. God bless. Enjoy. Stay safe.

If you get a chance to see newgrange, in the bru na boinn, DO IT! It is effing amazing what our 'primitive' ancestors could do

Oh, how lovely!

I must admit I'm a bit jealous. Someday, hopefully, I'll have a chance to go there, too.

If you find any Convys in or around Dublin, say, "Hi!" My Grandmother was born just outside Dublin. I wish you a wonderful time.

Enjoy your vacation Brigid & drink a Guinness for me!

HermitJim said...

I can almost hear the joy and peace in your words!

BTW, I sure would like to fish in that little lake!

Beautiful place, my friend!

George said...

Yeah ... reportedly, I have Irish antecedents, too. My ex said that Ireland is the land of a thousand shades of green. See how many you can catch!

Relax ... travel ... take deep breaths. It will all be here when you return so make your time away most restful.

Regards.

I'm glad to hear you're having a good trip, although such a trip would have to be utterly awful to be bad at all!

I have read your blog for over a year and as you have gone off to Ireland, I feel compelled to comment. Your writing and pictures bring me such serenity words fail me in my ability to tell you. I wish you well on your trip and hope that you find all the wee leprechauns you can and perhaps a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. I look forward to your next post and pictures!

TrueBlueSam said...

Have a great time! After three days you will really start relaxing and enjoying yourself, then you can think, "Wow, I still have a whole week ahead of me!"

Brigid said...

Emily - well thank you! I'll have a lot of pictures and a big post on it all when I get home.

Ah, I am filled with envy m'self. Thanx for posting the beautiful photos and sharing your grand time with us poor wretches who are stuck at home.
