|Ring of Kerry|
It seems like I've spent at least half of my life yearning to see those deep green fields and spectacular seaside cliffs ...

the quaint towns and medieval castles ...

and the endless rock walls ...

For two weeks, my mother and I will be traveling the length and breadth of the country, from Dublin to Northern Ireland, and then on over to the western coast. And, yes, I'm going to have to learn to drive on the left side of the road, something I'm not looking forward to!

I'll take lots of pictures (and paint lots of sketches), and I'll share it all with you when we return. But you won't have a chance to miss me too much - I've written up a couple of posts to tide you over. Stop back by in a few days for a glimpse of one of my most ambitious and all-time favorite projects.
And the next time you drive down the road, on the right side, say a little prayer for me!
