Last days in London

Well...I have taken on a new format for my blogg...and I cant control it now!!
The big red bus is just for kids to play on.

Pete and I did lots of bike riding along the river. A favorite place to go is Hampton Court Palace Gardens. They are fabulous!!

Holly showing off her growing baby!! She's half way...

Kolorful Kinsale

Kinsale Ireland is the cutest little village on the coast south of Cork. we spent the weekend there with Paul and Sharon.We took a walking history tour with this guide...very interesting.
Kinsale was the End of the Known World, thus a strategic post.  After Columbus discovered America and that the world was round...it lost its significance.  I love how they have painted up the old grey buildings.
