No Worries on The Great Irish Shannon River Expedition


Windmills were our constant companion.

 

What’s it like spending a week in a 40-foot boat (the Irish Ark), cruising down the Shannon River in Ireland, with  your husband and eight of your in-laws?  Well, I worried about it before I made the trip.  But I can honestly say  the whole experience left me speechless. So here are some photos instead.More to come…if you can stand it.
