Today started, well it started late *g* We all slept in as people on vacation do. I’ve never been up on getting up at the crack of dawn and go, go, go all day only to collapse into bed at night and the end result is going home EXHAUSTED and thinking DAMN I need a vacation… Agree?
So anyway we slept late. Got up cooked breakfast and then hubby took the kids to play what I guess is the Irish equivalent to putt putt or mini golf. It was a pitch and putt course. They played for a couple hours while I perched myself on my chair that overlooks the ocean from our cottage and I worked for a little bit but mostly I sat and soaked up the sun and the breeze and the smell of the ocean. Ahhh it was nice.
When the kidlets returned, we had a light lunch and then decided we were going to hit the road because the weather was just so amazingly gorgeous and we wanted to do some exploring. We took the coastal road from Doolin around to Ballyvaughn and further to a castle (the name escapes me at the moment even though I can hear the eldery Irish caretaker pronouncing it so I had the right of it) But hey I’m tired and my brain’s a bit fuzzy and full of gorgeous sunsets.
We stopped along the way and clambered over rock outcroppings to peek over the cliffs and we sat awhile and enjoyed the view. Our entire motto was “we’re not in a hurry” Although I did keep telling my daughter “don’t break your leg. Please don’t break your leg” I swear my youngest two are such daredevils and they scare the bejebus out of me because they’re so uninhibited.
We came back through Ennistimon instead of going back around the coastal road because I needed to find a flashdrive so I could transfer pictures from hubby’s laptop (where he downloads the camera’s pics to) to MY laptop because you guys keep asking for pics and well, I haven’t had a way to post them yet!
So I’m working on it. I’m hoping by tomorrow’s post to be able to give you guys a glimpse of our trip.
When we got back to the cottage, the kids went outside to play and hubby cooked dinner. Then we all sat outside watching the sun go down, and truly, this was as beautiful a sunset as we saw in the US Virgin Islands. We had plans to go into town to one of the pubs to listen to some more music this evening but we were all comfortable being lazy and so we just laid back and watched the sunset.
So there you have it. Day three. Not so exciting. But rather a lazy day taking our time and getting off the beaten path a bit. But then that’s what do most vacations. I jokingly told hubby that the year we went to Scotland that I swear we saw parts of Scotland that I doubt most Scots have never seen! Said jokingly but it was the absolute truth. I do know that there were many times we didn’t see a single other car for super long stretches of time when we were traversing the countryside.
I’m heading to bed where I’m going to work for awhile. I’ll catch you guys tomorrow!
