are you sick of Ireland yet? I’m certainly not!
I’ve got the travel bug SUPER bad and I’m already thinking about where to plan my next trip to – suggestions?!
anyways back to shamrock city – har har
the day after the wedding everyone slept late – I don’t think I climbed out of bed until 11AM and it was only because the smell of fresh baked scones from the kitchen was driving me up a wall
after breakfast –which i swear I asked the waitress for coffee more times than I have in my entire life – we all sat around trying to figure out what the plan for the day was
aren’t me and van the cutest?
eventually the weather turned and we found ourselves back at the lodge, drinking tea and reminiscing about the night before
a little while later into the afternoon the group decided we would head into the town of clifden for dinner and along the way stop at connemara national park – to attempt some hiking, etc etc
back to the bus!
by the time we got to connemara national park it was awful weather – we attempted diamond hill – the big monster – i REALLY wanted to hike it – but the wind and rain just made it unmanagable
when the weather got so awful we all found ourselves doing what most of the irish do – we found the food, guiness, coffee & tea place
when we were all soaked to the bone and ready to move on we continued on the bus into the town of clifden for dinner
deej & van took no time making friends…
while they did that – i was freezing and caved – buying a nice irish wool sweater. for dinner we ate at mitchell’s seafood restaurant
it was our final dinner in the connemara portion of our trip – when we got back to the lodge that night we hung out, drank tea & talked about how sad we were to leave michael and the delphi lodge
thursday morning – up BRIGHT and early – breakfast in our bellies (i made sure to make this a good one) we bid adieu to michael and the delphi lodge – we had an all day travel excursion which would bring us to our final destination of the trip
look how sad grammy is to leave…
see you in dublin!
love to love you <3
