Sorry for not updating the blog for the last few days but we don't have great reception out at the castle.
The castle has been great. Tania & I have been staying up on the top floor room. That's been good (we're developing buns of steel) but it's been a killer on the knees & ankles. The trouble with a 17th Century castle is: no elevator !!!!
Here's how cold it's been !!
The weather has been good (no snow) but it's been freezing. The maximum temperature hasn't been over 0 degrees celcius. Driving around the countryside, we're driving with an average temperature of about -7 degrees. The worst so far has been -11 degrees.
Here's the castle at sunrise (ie: 9.30am)
Here we are at the Cliffs of Moher. It was a beautiful, sunny day
but the whole countryside was covered in snow.
We also did a trip up the Burren. While looking for the Burren Perfumery, I swear we must have passed into Narnia at one point: it had that sort of feel to it.
We're getting ready for Christmas now: It'll be a mid-morning breakfast followed by a late lunch, followed by staying up late to watch the start of the Boxing Day test match.
Well....I'll leave it at that for the moment. Tania & I wish you all a wonderful Christmas (wherever in the world you are). Stay safe if you're travelling.
