In honor of St. Patrick's Day...

I thought I might share some pictures of a trip 5 friends and I took to Ireland this time in 2004 to visit a friend there who was a missionary. It just happened that the time we were able to go was over St. Patty's Day, so we got an extra little treat to be there for the celebration. I apologize that some of these images transferred funny, but you can get the point...

A couple of boys at one of the parades we saw while in Galway: Here's the whole gang at a random road sign. One of our friends that was with us has "ford" in his last name. So, of course, we made him get out of the car and take a picture at every appropriate sign. Needless to say, there were a lot- we all joined in the fun on this one (we're easily amused):
Our friend Ellen had distant relatives in Ireland that we sought out at the beginning of the trip. Here's their farm:
One of the days we took a small boat out to Innish Boffin- a small island off the western coast of Ireland. It was a great day of hiking (in bogs!) and hanging out. The waters were really really choppy on the way out there. We all were hanging onto anything we could to stay on our feet. We caught our friend Dave unknowingly hanging on to the ladies room door. Classy!
