Ireland with the Natives

We got to Galway and Mandy (friend from Oslo) picked us up.  She runs a dog kennel and races sled dog across the world.  She lives in a tine town called Ballygar in between Galway and Athlone.  When we got there we went out with her husband, her Au Pair, and her friend.

I drank a lot of cider. :)

The next day we had a traditional Irish breakfast and off we were to go exploring.  Mandy took us with her to a meeting of her club in Sligo and we BBQed and got to do a bit more sight seeing!

Strandhill on the Northern Coast

Queen Mauve. (that's Mandy!)

Roscommon Castle

We went to bed soon after getting home after a full day and the next day we went back to Dublin to round out the trip.  We caught the bus in Athlone, and while we were waiting, we saw two horses completely free from wherever they were supposed to be walking down the street...

We caught the bus just in time and had to run from the car to get it barely able to even say goodbye!  We got into Dublin and did some quick sight-seeing and then flew home.

The "You're the Size of a Leprechaun" Room

Ohhh, so cute.

All of the pictures of me are on Braden's camera.....sigh. Here they are!
