Ireland! Part II. Exploring the Emerald Isle and Bidding our Fresher Slán

For the next four days Anna Grace and I connected whenever we could, the first occasion being a Saturday morning in Howth. On our first visit to Howth a couple of years prior we were able to hike around the cliffs and make our way back into the village; on this visit all we had time for was a short walk out to the lighthouse and a stroll about their market.

Road Tripping. (Getting To) Knoxville, Tennessee

A date was scheduled. I made plans for a Road Trip. We’re a team like that.
