August 19th: Dublin

On the 19th I had a free day in Dublin so I went around the city hitting up all the sights I had not yet been to!

Kilmainham Jail - lots of Irish Independence History here.  It was interesting to see the old jail and to hear about how those that were fighting for independence were treated.

art therapy!!  

Dublin Castle -

St. Patrick's Cathedral:

More Art therapy  - I added a tag with a thank you for all those that have served

pretty tile floors!
I ended my night with the Riverdance 20th Year Show! It was amazing and I am really glad I decided to go!

Here is the art journal page I made:

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a lovely Tuesday!

August 18th: Celtic Heritage

On the 18th I went on a Celtic Heritage Tour.  I've been interested in Celtic heritage since I was quite young so I was very excited about this tour.  We went to the Hill of Tara:

St. Patrick who taught the people about Christianity 

Ancient fertility statue - hug it = fertility; no I did not hug it.  

We stopped at a very old Abbey:

Visited Trimm Castle:

Then we went to see The Loughcrew Tombs:

And we went to see two of the largest Celtic High Crosses!

Here is the art journal page I made after this tour:

It was a wonderful day filled with lots of history!  Thanks for stopping by today!!! "See" you soon.

August 17th: The Cliffs of Moher

Another one of the things I really wanted to do when I was in Ireland was to go see the Cliffs of Moher.  They did not disappoint - they were amazing and I loved being there.  Again, I could have spent all day there if I had the chance.  Here are some photos:

After the Cliffs of Moher we went to The Burren - a limestone rock covered area of the coast:

It was a good day but I was exhausted by the time we got back to Dublin since I had climbed all over the Cliffs.  If you get a chance to go to Ireland I would certainly suggest checking out the Cliffs of Moher!

Here is the art journal page from the day:
 Have a great night everyone!  "See" you soon.
