We took our Sunday drive today (Monday) and we had some company -- the whole house plus Imelda, our housekeeper, and her daughter Sophie.
We visited the Irish National Stud, the Japanese Gardens, and St. Fiachra's Garden. All on the same grounds.
We admired the beautiful thoroughbred horses in the National Stud --
We walked through the Japanese Gardens. The Japanese Gardens is a wonderful place to take a walk because it's a 'walk of life' starting in the birth cave and exiting through the gates of eternity.
We walked through the tunnel of ignorance, crossed the marriage bridge, parted ways, celebrated old age and reflected on the mourning hill.
We chose different paths: some took the easy path and some took the adventure path.
Some of us needed a little extra help along the way...that's life.
When the path ahead is too scary, ask a friend for help --
You'll get there with a little help from your friends --
Relaxing in St. Fiachra's Garden --
We stopped at a pub for dinner and everybody had dessert. Happy day.
Good night on the summer solstice. 10:25 pm and still light outside.
