Arrived Tuesday afternoon, and apparently I singlehandedly brought sunshine and semi clear skies! Unintentional, I assure you, but the break in what has been a completely rainy summer so far is appreciated.

Michelle is beyond the hostess with the mostest. I have been toured, fed, shopped, toured and shopped again. The woman is incredible. Had a lovely dinner at her Mom’s house the first night I was here’s – cooking that so reminded me of my grandmother. Yesterday we had High Tea at the Sherbourne Hotel where we ate until we just about popped. THEN we had to go to another dinner at a friend’s house. I thought I was going to burst.

Today we skipped breakfast altogether, had a late pub lunch and will forgo dinner. I have to fit into my jeans!!

My sister, Mimi, comes tomorrow, and Sunday we are off in our travels to Kerry and Dingle.

More as we go.
