On Northern Ireland from Siena

Even though I was encouraged to take a break from the blog while on holiday, I can't stay away. Today I will share a few photos from Ireland, but I'll leave it at that. I foresee a lot of reflecting once I get home.

This is my favorite photo from Northern Ireland. As you will see from the photo below, Ireland is THAT green. It's green because it rains ALL the time. We spent two days in Templepatrick, which is near Belfast, and five days in Portrush, a vacation town on the north coast. All of the family time, including the wedding, was wonderful. The only bad parts were the jet lag (which I suffered from more than the others) and the stress my poor dad experienced as he drove us around. None of us wanted to share the responsibility.

Sheep! Another Irish cliché that is based on truth.

We took this photo at Ballintoy Harbour, a place that I visited during my solo trip to Ireland 10 years ago. I was happy to have a buddy with me this time around.

There's too much to capture in this one post, so maybe I'll tell you about our Black Cab tour of Belfast and our trip to Derry another time. Maybe not.
