We, oddly, had a little time off in the middle of our tour-lette and were able to hunker down for a couple days in a breathtakingly gorgeous manor near the sea in the southwest of Cork.
Oh My, the pictures don't even do it justice. Our hosts were incredible, their pack of rescued dogs and horses and donkeys were unforgettable.
The food, drink, and company right there on the top ten list!!
So Happy Valentine's day. May you find beauty in it all today! And spread LOVE.
And a toast to Ireland and its big hearty welcome.

Rugby at the Spaniard. A devastating day for the Irish. But the guinness tasted great anyway.
This is Damian, our Rugby aficionado. It was a five pint match.
The kids got in on it too.
Paul, and Barbara and Werner, our lovely hosts.
In the back of every Irish mind....
Benny, the king of the castle.
My soulful new pal, Billy
Oscar and Max, true love.
