Summer in my vest, raincoat, jeans and runners

Yes summer in my vest is what happened this year, Pat and I set off on our travels for 12 days to tour the south-east in our caravan, we soaked up two days of sunshine that was interrupted by nasty winds and rain, we visited our beloved Wexford on to Waterford down into Cork on to beautiful Kerry, Killarney was magic muckross house was splendid, Pat rode his new bicycle around there with pride, we danced in the Gleneagle hotel, managed to have one barbecue under an umbrella."Such fun" tasted lovely.......... 

 Pat decided to relive his school days by sitting in and old school desk that we came across in Kenmare

The old Honda 90 looking its best in Listowel

 John B Keane stand tall in Listowel, we visited his pub and had coffee, viewed the pictures of many treasured memories on the wall. I secretly hope that some of his writing skills may rub off on me when I undertake the long awaited challenge of writing a book..........
