Grandma and Grandpa are Here! by Ann Treacy

The big news is that Grandma and Grandpa are here. Everyone is so excited. Our plan for the week is to stay in Lehinch on the West Coast of Clare – about 5 miles from the Cliff of Moher.

On Saturday we started the drive. Seven of us and our luggage just about fit into the car. Well, we fit if some of us sit on the golf clubs – but we made it. Grandpa is doing all of the driving. Aine told him he was doing a very good job – we all agreed. Driving here takes some getting used to – adding in the driving on the left, the mini-van status, the shift, and the Irish road signs.

We took a detour to see the Rock of Cashel – my favorite castle of all times. The weather was perfect. Most of the pictures are from there. I wrote about my trip to Cashel with Anita and Darla last month so I won’t write too much again.

At about 5:00 we arrived at our house in Lehinch. It is amazing!! It’s big, it’s new, it’s the best of American and Irish features. There are 2 couches near the TV with full able/Sky so that was a big plus. The girls may be sick of Disney before we leave. There is even WiFI for me, which is great! We are about a 20-minute walk from the beach. And we’re living amongst the cows – there’s an electric fence to keep them out of our yard.

Mom and Dad say hi. They haven’t golfed yet – but we’ve seen the golf course and it looks challenging.

The weather has been perfect! Ann

Hi to all! Sounds great. The house sounds perfect.
Who’s taking pictures? When does the golf start?
Don’t forget to come home — ALL of you! We miss you all. Love, Mary
