Blarney and Cobh, Ireland

Blog for April 1, 2014 from Cork, Ireland – Sunday and Monday we slept in and got a late start for the hop on/ off bus both days. We went around Cork on the one hour tour without getting off. Hopefully we will get a chance to go back to some of the interesting spots we saw. When we got home yesterday we were looking at our emails and found some sad news. Our neighbor Carmen sent us a message that our pet bird had passed. She has been taking care of him while we are traveling. We were sad that we could not be there and she was quite upset too. We asked Carmen to bury him in our back yard next to our other pet bird who passed last year. We had to go on through our grief as today we had a scheduled tour to the Blarney Castle and the city of Cobh. Both are fairly close to Cork so we were able to see them in a half day tour. The Blarney castle was interesting and the setting is beautiful. In Cobh we went through the Titanic Experience exhibition. Cobh is the last place the Titanic took off from on its maiden voyage to America. We would like to go back to Cobh as it is an interesting town with other things to see. Tonight we went to a play at the Everyman Theater. It is a comedy entitled Stones in His Pocket. Tomorrow we sleep in!
Peace and Love
