Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Revisiting the Rock of Cashel--St. Patrick's Cross and the Round Tower.

St. Patrick's Cross (front) in the museum.

The Round Tower is the oldest surviving building and is thought to date from the 1100s.

Graceful carvings with a touch of green.

In honor of St. Patrick's Day here are some more photos of the Emerald Isle...

This was our first sheep encounter of the trip.  We ended up turning around because it started to sleet.  The road was very narrow, steep and no room to turn around easily.  

Kerry Woolen Mill

Millie and I made friends while waiting for the mill to open.

Tweed!

Pretty wool on the carding machine.

Debbie explains how everything worked.  Jim enjoyed the machines.


This is the wool before it went through the carding machine.


A very windy day--Jim is leaning into the wind. (Ring of Kerry)

The waves were crashing on the rocks.  It was a great day!

There is so much beauty in the rock formations.

A pretty church window.

We saw lots of bike shops and places to rent them.

A brief break in the weather allowed us to see the distant rocks. 
A tuft of sheep's wool caught on the grass.  (No sheep jumped off the cliff.)

A variety of green.


Yes, that is snow.  

I was so happy I brought my (Aranmor) sweater, as I wore it every day!
