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 Gallery: Taming Ireland

Earlier this month we visited Ireland for the first time—perhaps, not the last. Great food, friendly people, ancient history, and amazing scenery greeted us in every town and roadside stop.

Here’s another 12 photos telling the story of our visit, this time with a mostly architectural theme. The Irish have been altering their landscape with the abundant stone found on their island for 1,000s of years. This gallery features stonework from The Round Tower at the Rock of Cashel (circa AD 1100) to present day Dublin.

If landscapes are more your thing, you’ll be amazed by the views in the previous gallery: Wild Ireland.

Enjoy!

 

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.
