Looks like Phil was having a good time in that picture. Was that before he got sick? Check your mailbox in a few days. Your BOUCHERCON CARE package is headed your way!

Nice. Looks like you did have sun at least one day. It is a beautiful green country, isn't it?

I remember that street in Cong. And we too went to Kylemore Castle--but just as it was closing!

No, he was sick. He has never let up because he is sick. Whereas I collapse.
The gardens were the best thing at Kylemore. The inside was fairly empty except for pictures of nuns from its many days as a Catholic school.
It was green all right.
I never went anywhere before I was in my mid-forties, Chris.

Beautiful. Someday, maybe...

Wonderful pictures, Patti. I'm with you on the collapse when sick thing. It's green, alright. Heck it rains a huge amount! Sorry Phil was sick.

Portland must be similar, Rick.
Ireland is an easy place to visit. Good transportation, kind people, similar in most ways to the U.S.

It's just beautiful. What a wonderful trip you must have had. Puts Ireland back on the list of places to visit soon - I was there last 5 summers ago.

Patti - Oh, what lovely 'photos!! I hope you had a fabulous trip.

Those gardens look great.

They were amazing. I guess constant rain has its assets. Plus this was in October, think of June.
