I didn’t know a vacation could be this good. During our two weeks in Ireland, we explored exciting places, experienced stunning beauty, and met charming family. And Margaret and I found rest for our spirits and shared an experience that would serve as a touchstone for our new marriage.

Our last day in Ireland came. As evening fell, we decided to stroll Dublin’s streets one more time.

The light was delicious, golden. I got out my camera.

We followed streets that had become familiar to us even in our few days in this city.

But cast in this delicious light, we saw them anew.

As we walked and talked, we reflected on how fortunate we had been to have been gifted this trip, and to have been able to unplug from our lives for two solid weeks. We talked of our best memories and our favorite adventures. We wished we could have just one more day.

But wrapping our trip on this note, in this light, was pretty terrific.

    • Thanks Jim! I’m sad to see it end. Writing about it helped me live in those wonderful memories a lot longer. But also, it provided easy blog fodder. I knew that when this series ended I’d have to stretch to come up with something to write about! Fortunately, it ends right as my blog’s 10th anniversary begins. There’s plenty to write about there!
