Photo of the Week--7/28/08

We began our second year of living overseas with a wonderful, week-long trip to Ireland. As you can see from the picture, there's a good reason why it's called the Emerald Isle—greenery everywhere. Even our rental car was acid green (about the only thing Boy remembers from the trip), and we drove it up and down, alongside beaches and through hills, occasionally getting stopped by an Irish traffic jam (ie, a flock of sheep on the road). The lack of signposts made getting lost a frequent but enjoyable event during our trip. This is Dunguaire Castle, a 16th-century tower house on the shores of Galway Bay. The hill, the rocks, the water, the green everywhere—it just seemed to encapsulate everything wonderful about Ireland.
