Exploring Ireland #Travel
In 2017 I was lucky to take an overseas trip to the UK and Ireland. Today I’m going to be sharing pictures from that trip. I have way more pictures than I can share, but I hope you enjoy what I am sharing.
I’m going to start with Blarney Castle – this is the view from the roadway:
The weather wasn’t the best that day, but it really did lend a moody feel to the castle.
Ireland is very green, and the weather can be tricky at times. I was lucky enough not to get rained on too much.
The castle was having some work done on it which isn’t surprising. And before you ask, no I didn’t kiss the Blarney stone. Part of the reasons is its way up top and you have to lay on your back, tilt your head back and then be helped up. Since I have an issue with heights I decided not to go. But I did explore the poison garden.
Some very interesting plants and items for future books.
In Dublin I was able to see the Garden of Remembrance in Dublin – this is a small one in tribute to those who fought for Irish Freedom. This was the best picture, I was on a tour bus.
And because I’m always interested in history. This is a picture of a police station.
Notice the high fence surrounding the police station. That is left over from the days of the IRA when they would throw bombs at police stations. The fence helped protect the station and the men and women working within.
And no trip would be complete without a visit to:
Now I don’t drink but I enjoy learning how the whiskey was made and the history behind Jameson.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this little bit of armchair travel with an author, Exploring Ireland.
Adam - Doms of the Silver Screen Book 2
Director Adam Bainbridge has one job to do—get the film finished. Something that would be much easier if he weren’t in love with the leading lady. Taught to always hide his feelings, he denies the passion and love he feels for his ex-wife. Seeing her every day in the arms of another man is too much for his Dom side to bear. He’s always wanted her back in his life, in his bed, and under his command. Too bad she has other ideas that don’t include him.
Looking to take her acting career to the next level, Nicki Masters accepts the role of a lifetime. She doesn’t count on her ex-husband being the film’s director. She’d loved him enough to wait for him once despite the pain they experienced together, and he never returned. Now that she’s tried to move on, the sexy Dom wants a second chance. Loving him again would be the biggest challenge of her life. She just doesn’t believe she can teach an old Dom new tricks.
