Photo Gallery: Remembering Ireland

We returned from Ireland a month ago, and the memory is still fresh for me. I vividly recall the smells, the colors, the wind, rain, and stone. Ireland presents a freshness and ancientness that my photos only hint at. If you ever travel there, be sure to meet the people, enjoy the food (and Guinness), see the sights, learn the history, and above all, enjoy each unhurried moment.

This is my final installment of Irish photo memories—a mix of new photos and some favorite moments in the order they were taken. I hope you enjoy them.

Photo Gallery: Relishing Ireland

I dream of taking my entire family—kids and grandkids—on a tour of Europe. I know there are lots of places to see in this world. But, for some reason it’s Europe that draws my imagination. Is it the history? My German roots? Dawn’s Scandanavian roots? My reformation theology? I can’t give you a single reason, I just know I’m drawn there. And I’d love to share the experience with my whole family.

Until that dream comes true, Dawn and I will relish our adventure touring Ireland with our middle child, Haley. Here’s some photos of us enjoying the Emerald Isle.

Photo Friday: Wild Ireland

Happy Friday!

I haven’t written much in the last two years—back surgery, recovery, building a new kitchen—but I hope to get back into the habit. And the easiest way is to share a few photos from our recent trip to Ireland, a wild, and aggressively green island, with the friendliest people I’ve encountered.

Here are 12 photos, mostly landscapes taken across 1,200 kilometers of travel, that illustrate the wild beauty of the emerald isle. If you enjoy these, give them a like and a share this post. Thanks for stopping by.
