Some pictures from December adventures

Mike Parkes came to town and we had a nice time in the mountains and by the sea. DSC_1244 DSC_1239 DSC_1217 DSC_1186

Bret and I finished up our 52 pubs the night before our first wedding anniversary!!  We complete the challenge after a bit of a pub crawl at El Fenix.  We thought it was hilarious that the logo from one of our top beers, an IPA made locally called Handsome (logo on phone), was strikingly similar to that of our favorite mexican restaurant in Cork, Cafe Mexicana (postcard that I happen to be carrying around in my purse).


We took one last road trip up to Connemara and Mayo.  In general, we find that our favorite place is the one we just visited and this was no exception.  Connemara was really stunning with snow capped mountains and we had lovely views of the Achill Islands from our drive around Mayo.  We could definitely spend another few weeks exploring this area.

We stopped in Galway for lunch on our way home…

This parking garage was clearly designed to mess with tourists not from Ireland or the UK.
