We survived Ireland's roads.

My little friend at our bed and breakfast in Ireland, he loves carrots.

I didn't post anything on my blog for the past week++ for two reasons...... an internet connection was not handy and we were having way too much fun to even stop to look for one. We are back home now after spending the last week in Ireland for Steve and Martina's wedding. This was my second trip to Ireland, so there were no surprises for me. But Irish roads are still unbelievable!! We rented a car in Dublin and drove almost 2000 kms, mostly on the old country roads. If you ever want an exciting experience, you just have to do this!! The speed limit is 100 km/hr and in reality if you are doing 50 km/hr you might be endangering your lives!
All in all, we had a great trip but of course we are glad to be home too. We are still adjusting to the time change (-8 hours), but hopefully we will be back to normal in another day or so.
Next on the agenda...... sailing to Seymour Inlet, just past the northern tip of Vancouver Island but on the mainland side of British Columbia. We are planning to leave about August 9th for about a month. I will be busy the next few days planning our meals and provisioning the boat. Jerry's job is everything else! And I think he has the easy job.

Hi Kathy, glad to have you back home safe and sound! That little friend looks like a Shetland pony.
