Glendalough

Today we took our first real outing in the car. We decided to go to Glendalough. Glendalough is in County Wicklow, which is just to the south of County Dublin. Wicklow is known as the garden of Ireland and is a popular destination for tourists, hikers and triathletes. Glendalough is an ancient monastic site in the "valley of two lakes." It is only about a 40 minute drive from our house. There are lovely ruins to explore and many trails to take walks along. It started to rain about an hour after we got there, so we headed to a local pub for some lunch and a Guinness.We are already planning our next trip back, bringing Pepper and a picnic, some rain gear and a map of the trails.

Here are some photos I took on today's excursion:
