On a Jaunting Car
Mum and I spent our holidays in Kerry last year, in glorious sunny weather, totally unlike the today's torrential downpour and thunderstorms, so as I've just been scrapping the holiday pics recently I thought a reminder of a nice sunny day wouldn't go amiss! These record the trip in the jaunting car to the Gap O Dunloe, outside Killarney, beautiful scenery, and quite an experience too. The ribbons came from Little Silver Hat's June kit (really lush ribbons!) and the paper and flowers were from Modscraps June kit. We also stopped in on Newgrange on our way south to Dublin from the Belfast ferry, and crawled along the inner passageway to the chambered tomb. The guide was excellent, and it's really atmospheric when they put all the lights out then shine a beam in recreating the light striking the back of the tomb at the summer solstice. Amazing.On the opposite side of the country, and as far to the west as you can go, is the Gaelic speaking Dingle peninsula, rugged cliffs, narrow, twisty roads, the shrine at Slea Head, lovely beaches, next stop America!
