After the weeks and months of waiting, the day of departure finally dawned.
Not surprisingly, I did not sleep well the night before. Just as I headed for bed, a migraine hit. In the morning my head was pounding. All I could think about was getting to the airport - without forgetting anything important.
Last-minute items stuffed into suitcases. Final briefing for the kids. Took a taxi to the airport - and almost got in three accidents on the way, our driver was such an aggressive driver. But we checked in early, whizzed through security, and found a restaurant for lunch.
|Goodness, how I love those eyes!|
From there we flew to Dublin, where we were greeted at the airport and checked into our rooms right away. After a short rest (but NO NAP!) we went on a really short cruise on the canal that was right across the street from our hotel.
|Our boat barely made it under the tunnel.|
|Steve welcomed his first Guiness of the trip.|
Apparently neighbours were very competitive when it came to ornamentation of their entries.
|I want this window.|
