Home Again

Lovely to be home and LOVED seeing RPE and her home in Ireland!

The weather was lovely the entire time we were there and the scenery was breathtaking!

Oh, and the food was excellent and the pubs friendly.  Walking, whether in the city or the countryside, offered endless delights!

I think that one of my favorite places, if I had to pick, was Glendalough.

St. Kevin went there seeking solitude to pray … but his apparently exceedingly charismatic spirituality led to the founding of a monastic settlement there, at the foot of two lakes in a spectacular valley.  It’s definitely a place to explore again sometime!  I highly recommend doing so when there’s a slant to the light!

Then there was Powerscourt … the hotel, the gardens, and the waterfall.  Spectacular, all!
