Dia duit. This means Hello in Gaelic. I hope you've had a wonderful week and are excited about the weekend. I will say that yesterday's full day of activity tired us out and we slept in til a bit after nine this morning. I think this is due to the amount of walking we are doing; though I walk at home, here we walk almost everywhere we can. Today's schedule began shortly after breakfast when we toured Kilkenny Castle. Oh what a wonderful place to see. The city now owns it and has been restoring it for many years. There are original oil paintings though, some from the Masters. WE couldn't take any photos inside, but I did buy a book on the castle.
After we finished, we got the car and headed down to Waterford. When we were married, hubby's grandmother gave us a Waterford Decanter which was destroyed in the Loma Prieta earthquake in '89. I planned on seeing just how much a decanter would go for-lol-not in our budget. We went on a wonderful tour; we once went on a tour of another glass blowing factory in West Virginia and it couldn't hold a candle to Waterford. It was so interesting; we even bought a Christmas ornament.
We returned to Kilkenny and went walking and finally out to a Pub, for some Pub Grub as they say here. All in all, I think we walked about 5-6 mls today.
Tomorrow we head to Cork where we will stay for three days. I've decided that we need to scale back on the number of places to see each day; we want to really enjoy ourselves and not burn out.
May your weekend be blessed.
