Is this Heaven? No, it's Ireland.

We have been so busy making the most of our last couple of weeks in Ireland that I’ve had little time for blogging. Declan arrived in Dublin on Sunday and found his way to Kilkee by Monday evening. Meanwhile, Eoin and I made a road trip up to North Mayo and took the scenic route toward home, down through the mountains (hills?) during one of the many foggy, mist-ridden days we’ve experienced this summer. We were rewarded with some of the most magnificent sights I’ve seen to date – and this is saying a lot in a country that dazzles my eyes almost continually! Nearly on my way out the door again today, I only had a moment to download a slew of photos, many that barely do justice to the reality of what we saw, and drop one in here that I particularly liked. I snapped this photograph on the road between Louisburgh in Co. Mayo and Leenane, Co. Galway – a road that extended our trip by an extra day because we couldn’t get enough of it in just two!
