I hope you're having a great weekend and getting more accomplished than I am. Since I can't seem to get my mind focused on writing right now, I've decided to give you guys a glimpse into my one and only stop in Ireland.
I was so looking forward to the Antrum coast, but that didn't happen. Still, Dublin was lively, despite the rain. It was a lovely place, the little I actually got to see of it from my motor coach, lol.
We stopped at Trinity College and waited out in the rain for quite some time to get a glimpse of the Book of Kells. I'm sorry to say that Trinity doesn't allow cameras into their display, but you can find each image at the college's website. http://digitalcollections.tcd.ie/home/index.php?DRIS_ID=MS58_003v
I'm still going to share the photos I took while in the bus. I loved the amazing house fronts and rich heritage there.
See the McDonald's sign? Seriously? Lol.
We also got to stop at St. Patrick's Cathedral. It was just beautiful and I hope the pictures will give you an idea of the fantastic archways and lovely stained glass. This place is massive inside and just amazing to think about how long it's been standing (hint 1191!)
I'm grateful for their sacrifices and for their ability to adapt during hard times. I'm also so very thankful to have been able to visit such a wonderful place. I hope to be able to go back one day and visit more of Ireland. Maybe then I can really find out where my people come from.
How about you? Have you visited Dublin? What was your favorite part? What did I miss?
