October 22 – 28, 2013

I was excited to have our first visitors this week! At the top of their must-see list was the Blarney Castle. I was happy to have a reason to travel there, so we hopped on a train to Cork and took a side trip to Blarney to tour the castle and kiss the Blarney Stone. We had really beautiful weather – blue skies and sunshine – but this photo with a more gritty, gray feel turned out to be one of my favorites.
