    Good Morning Sharon and BYC friend’s!  It’s going to be be HOT here, too!  Predicting the first 90 degree day before the week is out.  Love the ‘hodge-podge’ day pix.  Here is a bit of advice we might enjoy!

    My last Day Lily finally bloomed so prettily!  Now, of course, the blooms are all gone but it was sure beautiful while they lasted.

    While we were in western Ireland and driving along an inlet from the Atlantic Ocean, I spotted these ‘fish farms’ that were anchored in the inlet where fish were raised I thought.  There were certainly a LOT of them but I don’t know what kind of fish were being raised.  It was a BIG inlet as you can see the houses on the opposite side are quite far away from us.

    As we drove into the parking lot at “Kylemore Castle” this view greeted us along with a explanatory sign of what we were about to see.  What a delightful view of the Castle we had.

    Here is the informational sign.  You can see that this is a HUGE area to try to see all of it; they even had buses to carry visitor’s from the entrance area to the walled garden area as it was quite a hike from the entrance.  Everywhere else….you walked.  Tiring, but SO interesting!!!

    After we arrived onto the ‘front porch’ area (which was HUGE) of Kylemore Abbey/Castle, I took this photo of the TOP PART that was over the front door.  I would have loved to gotten into much more of the building than we did, but my legs just wouldn’t let me.  My son pushed me in my wheelchair AFTER I had got out of it and climbed the short stairway into the entrance.  Just that little bit was fascinating and they sure lived well, inside the place.

    Here is a ‘small’ bit of what the inside of the Abbey looked like.  I just noticed my sons reflection in the mirror over the fireplace!  LOL

    Today’s last photo is of the top of the fireplace mantle and the beautiful furnishings that were seen there.  Many photo’s of the Nuns and later Owner’s were in prominent places on the walls and the other furnishings we saw were of the very finest to make it a comfortable home in which to live.
