MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: BLARNEY CASTLE, COUNTY CORK

BLARNEY CASTLE

I loved my first visit to Blarney Castle in County Cork!  Although the winding staircases got steeper and steeper, narrower and narrower, and wetter and wetter, it was wonderful to achieve the top!  The views were incredible.  And, of course, most visitors, including my daughter, lay down on their backs, had someone hold their legs and reached WAY back to kiss the Blarney Stone.  I passed (bad back, bad knees, blah blah……).  The Stone of Eloquence supposedly bestows the “gift of gab” on those who kiss it.  I figured I already had it so I just kissed my daughter!  And we made our way back down all those stairs.

MONDAY’S MAGICAL MOMENT: BEARA PENINSULA

BEARA PENINSULA

Down in the southwest corner of Ireland, you’ll find craggy shores, numerous bays and inlets, mountains and three famous peninsulas…….the Dingle, the Iveragh (which includes the Ring of Kerry) and the Beara.  The Beara, or Bere, is the least known, least visited and, I think, the most beautiful.  This photo was taken near Garnish Point in County Cork.
