Well, at least he is technically just a passenger! After several days of traveling through Ireland…….the horse fair in Ballinasloe, a visit to the Aran Islands, and a few stops as we made our way south west to Kilorglin, we are finally settled in at Sally’s home. Ahhh! It always feels fine and dandy to be back here. After a long growing season, days from sunup to sundown, coming to Ireland is the most restorative thing I could do. I find delight in every moment being here. I’ll post a few photos from our first day at the horse fair. I love the kids who whip around the fair grounds on their ponies. The great faces and smiles of the Irish. Later, I’ll fill readers in on a very special visit to Inis Mor to meet a friend whom I’ve been corresponding with. Most definitely a highlight of my visit. When I get back to my own wonderful place on earth……home to Maine, there will still be plenty to do. Two pigs to butcher, 70 meat birds to process, and several lambs to put into the freezer. The apple harvest has been amazing this year, so lots of cider pressing and another fruit to preserve for winter. For now, I won’t think to much about these chores, I’ll just savor my time here in Ireland for a bit!
