LikeLike Reply Is that top one a photo or did you paint it? LikeLike Reply It’s a photo of an amazing church. There were parishioners inside getting ready for mass. It was very unadorned compared to most churches we visited, but that back door was a surprise! It was late in the day and the lighting was very tricky. I’ll check out the book.

Only with better pubs. LikeLike Reply Seriously? Where in Ireland were you? LikeLike Reply I went over on the car ferry from Scotland to Glasgow and then drove around the south of Ireland and over to Kerry. Don’t get me wrong — it was gorgeous, even in the dead of winter. But it was just so dang prosperous. It’s been a few decades since I was there, and apparently those little thatched roof cottages burning their blue peat smoke are an endangered species with less than 1000 left. (But if you want to buy one, journalist Cormac McConnell has just written “Who wants to buy our beautiful thatched cottage in Clare, Ireland?”– http://goo.gl/M9UgwI) LikeLike Reply I loved my visit to the Cotswolds 6 or 7 years ago. The villages are so… quaint. Isn’t that the best way to describe them? I remember walking from village to village through people’s yards (permissible, believe it or not!) Like walking through a storybook. LikeLike Reply Your last line hit it on the head. It is like a storybook! I would love to go back someday and spend more time exploring. Thanks Jackie! LikeLike Reply This area really brings up thoughts of Merry Olde England. We a village down the path from Bath but ran to catch the lat train back to London. I do want to go back!
