Last Tour Day :(
The the last day of the tour finally had to come. We had such a GRAND time, as they say in Ireland. We loved it! Above is our picture with Bébhinn and the van we spent a week in.
This castle was built by the O'Flahertys in the 16th Century. Look at the designs carved into the stone window arches. It's just amazing how old these structures are and how they've survived through the ages. Some better than others of course, but amazing nonetheless.
Our last stop before arriving back in Dublin was the Kilbeggan Whiskey Distillery. We had an interesting self guided tour there, learning how whiskey is made. Since Michelle and I don't drink we donated our samples and souvenir glasses to one of the young men in the group.
We were dropped off in Dublin, said our sad goodbyes to our new friends and headed out to a hotel by the airport where we spent one more night before taking our long journey home the next day. It was such a wonderful trip! Thanks for hanging in there with me while I journaled and shared our photos.
I have a few more "design idea" photos to share that will be more quilting related. It's amazing how you can see quilting designs everywhere you look!
Oh and tomorrow I'll have to share Phyllis' photo of bog butter :) Have a great day!! Or a grand day, if you're Irish :)
